Message from the Nursery Manager

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am delighted that you are considering enrolling your child at Dovecote Nursery.

Here, you can find the same high standard of care for children aged 1-4 as you would at any of the best British nurseries. Our staff are highly qualified experienced, warm and friendly. Our main priorities are that the children in our care are safe and happy.

We follow the British EYFS curriculum, which is based on four guiding principles: Enabling Environments, Positive Relationships, Unique Child, and Effective Learning and Development. Our teachers and staff are fully trained in this curriculum and standards of care. We teach children by ensuring challenging and playful opportunities, from messy and exploratory play, to developing a love of reading. Although we follow a familiar routine, each day is planned around the needs and interest of each individual child. We work with you, your child’s first and most important educator, to ensure that we complement your approach to childcare.

I hope to welcome you and your family into our nursery, and to work in partnership with you to make your child’s time at Dovecote a rewarding and enriching experience.

Best wishes,
Helen Cairns
Manager, Dovecote Nursery

Parent Testimonial

Before joining Dovecote our son was a shy boy who would cling to mummy rather than venture into play with others. Attending nursery has brought him out of his shell! He loves nursery and is clearly thriving in the Dovecote environment.

The nursery facilities are spacious and offer an extremely comfortable place for the children. The staff have welcomed him and have a fantastic personal knowledge of all children and obvious interest in them as people, not numbers. A variety of activities are offered daily and the Staff clearly take time to listen to and understand the children as they talk and play, ensuring that they learn from every situation. Our son just turned 2 and is brought up in a multilingual family; the staff have assisted and his speech has improved dramatically. He can now form basic coherent sentences and differentiate between 2 languages.

Dovecote is a safe and extremely well organised place, with a fantastic management team. I was reluctant to place my son in any nursery, however as soon as we walked into Dovecote we were filled with confidence that it is the right / best place for our son. I'm certain any parent would feel the same!
