Our Philosophy

Praise & Encouragement

Children need to feel safe and have a sense of belonging. This enables them to make as much progress as possible providing a happy, safe and stimulating environment. We provide opportunities for intellectual, physical, spiritual and moral growth in preparing children for later life. We encourage all our children to form positive relationships with their peers and adults, and develop their confidence to enable them to communicate in front of others.

 All the children are encouraged to respect the feelings, values, beliefs and property of others and we encourage children to participate fully in the nursery. This will help to promote self-esteem and self-confidence in all children through praise and encouragement, and to praise achievement and effort in all areas of learning.

Our children are taught to take responsibility for their own actions and to act in a polite and courteous manner at all times. All of our staff are dedicated and committed to achieving each child’s full potential, and Kensington Nursery is committed to encouraging our team to extend, improve and update their training and qualifications.

We are committed to making a partnership with our parents and understand the importance of establishing communication links. We encourage close parental involvement with pre-start visits and staff are available to talk about your child’s progress or any other issues you wish to discuss.

A Safe Environment To Learn

Providing a beautifully presented and bespoke intimate nursery, we pride ourselves on the small, homely and personal environment which we offer. When your child joins our nursery, our team is committed to giving all of the care and interaction they need to ensure everything runs smoothly. As proven, children learn more in a small nurturing environment. Children's speech can flourish, they can be heard and listened to as our staff have more time within this relaxed environment to build relationships with their key children. 

We encourage children to explore the outdoors as much as possible here at Elizabeth Saunders Nursery, and situated in such an idyllic spot with lovely nature walks on our door step is very fortunate. We like to take fully supervised trips into our local area. 

Excellent Facilities

The conveniently located nursery has been meticulously thought out by our team of experts and refurbished to an excellent standard inside and out. It offers children the best childcare facilities, including well-resourced indoor and outdoor play areas with friendly, highly trained staff in a home from home environment
