About us

Dear Parents and Carers

 

I would like to extend the warmest welcome to all parents, carers and children from all of us at Oakdean Nursery.  We understand that this is a very special time in your and your child’s life as you take this important step in the exciting journey of your child’s development. 

 

Here at Oakdean we are passionate about caring for your child and their happiness and wellbeing is our highest priority..  Our aim is to ensure you and your child’s time here with us is enjoyable and enriching.  This includes ensuring our environment is safe, welcoming and a place where children want to be.  We pride ourselves in being at the heart of our community and establish close partnership working with all our parents and carers.  We look forward to inviting you to one of our many parents events!

 

To ensure the best possible start for your child we continuously develop our enviroment and learning resources.  Our fabulous outdoor play areas include; soft play surfaces where children can roll and tumble and enjoy physical play without danger of injury from falls, digging and planting areas, vegetable patch, mud kitchens and access to nature trail and playing field.  We make ongoing investment in quality educational and IT equipment.  We have iPads in every room which are used with adult supervision to access fun and exciting Early Years Education apps. Your child's learning is recorded on an Interactive Learning Diary which is updated weekly and which you can access online.  We passionately believe in learning through play and see great levels of progress in communication and social skills across all age groups and the chidlren love our phonics and early mathematics play activities.

 

We are passionate about investing in the skills and qualifications of our staff.  We stay in touch with lthe latest development in early education and are proud to have many of our key staff involved in degree level or early years teacher training programmes.  We have developed close links with the University of Chester who are well known for the quality of their teacher training programmes and are one of the leading providers for the government's flagship early years teacher qualifiation..

 

Thank you for choosing Oakdean, I look forward meeting you and to many pleasant months ahead caring for and developing your child.
