We are an independently managed nursery based within the magnificent parkland setting of Syon Park, the home of the Duke of Northumberland.
Our Nursery Manager is Aleksandra, who has 6 years’ experience in nursery management. She is a qualified teacher with a Masters Degree in English Language and has a Level 3 qualification in Management and Childcare Education. She is dedicated to providing a happy, safe and stimulating environment for children to grow and develop. She has an enthusiastic attitude and works hard to ensure good practice is demonstrated across all areas of the nursery from planning quality activities to communicating with parents and staff.
We have a lovely two-storey building with spacious playrooms and plenty of light. Our large garden wraps right around the nursery affording us different areas to explore and play. We have fields with play equipment, activity areas with sandpits, a veggie garden to grow plants and our own forest area.
Our qualified, caring staff receive ongoing training, both on and off-site. This nurturing and development continues throughout their time with us, inspiring the level of care and education your child receives. All children are allocated a key-person when they start, someone who is committed to their well-being. We have a gentle settling-in process as we know that some children find it harder to adjust than others.
The under 2s have dedicated playrooms and a separate, calm sleep room with comfy cots.
For the 2-3 year olds we have rooms filled with specialised play equipment. This sturdy furniture is made from wood and other natural materials and encourages children to learn through play.
Our 3-5 year olds have supervised use of ICT equipment, engage in critical thinking activities such as science experiments and work on their early mathematical and literacy skills daily through fun, child-interest led activities. In this way our dedicated teachers prepare our children for their move to big school.
Within our dedicated preschool rooms our qualified teachers use a range of teaching philosophies to cater for children's differing learning styles. Through them, we aim to give children the best start possible. By the time they leave us for school, Buttercups children are confident, curious and have a zest for learning.
Plus we have additional activities on offer: Italian, Gardening, Cookery, Sports Club, Reading Club, Tiny Tunes and Computer Club!
