Puddles Nursery is one of two nurseries owned and run by Desirable Childcare Limited. Desirable Childcare was incorporated in October 2006.
With a combined total of 35 years’ experience in childcare, the Directors are well established and hold a great deal of knowledge. It has always been the goal of the Directors to open settings that they would be happy to place their own children.
Puddles Nursery opened in January 2007 and was such a huge success that when a new purpose build nursery was completed a short distance away, Desirable Childcare was approached to develop the space as they had done with Puddles Nursery.
It is very important that the families that use our service are treated fairly and equally and this has been an approach that we have adopted since the very start of Desirable Childcare.
Whilst children are at Puddles Nursery, staff sensitively plan activities to encourage the children to become involved and interact. This also goes some way towards building on their development and gives them several different learning opportunities. Providing these meaningful experiences is vital within the day to day care and assists children with their social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.
Children are given the freedom to make their own choices whilst at Puddles Nursery. They are also provided with the opportunity to play indoors and outdoors throughout the day. Routines are followed throughout the day to allow specific times for snack, meals and sleeps. If children would like rest times throughout the day, there are areas available for them to take advantage of.
Each child that attends Puddles Nursery is monitored and the progress of their development is checked against the age specific criteria in the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Each individual staff member dedicates a lot of time and hard work to ensure each child is kept safe, healthy, happy and is ready for school by the time they leave our setting.
At Puddles Nursery, we are proud to boast about the very professional team that care for the children that attend. We have invested time to get them trained and knowledgeable and have seen several individuals develop from unqualified nursery assistants through to qualified Managers. We always encourage our staff to give their best and we could not ask for a more delightful team of individuals.
Desirable Childcare is built on foundations of happiness, fun and success- for children, families and staff alike!
