At Free Spirits Nursery we aim to provide the highest quality childcare and education by creating a safe and stimulating environment. We want to give children the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually and help them reach their full potential whilst having the best possible fun.
Laying foundations for learning
Our well balanced programme of play and educational activities ensure children receive a broad and balanced curriculum. Activities are appropriate for their age and stage of development.
Improving outcomes for children and families
The nursery is regulated by The Early Years Directorate within the Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED). We comply with the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. We passed our most recent inspection with several outstanding elements.
Ensuring your child is as safe as possible
All staff are subject to employment checks in accordance with NHS standards. Our staff are subject to appraisal and mandatory training updates on an annual basis.
The nursery claims Free Early Years Entitlement (FEYE) for all eligible children over the age of three years. This can be claimed the term after a child turns three. You could be entitled to an amount of free nursery provision each week.
The nursery accepts a range of childcare vouchers. You may be eligible for tax free childcare
