Aims & Ethos
Our vision is to create an environment where your child is loved, cared for, nurtured and respected as a unique individual. An environment that allows children freedom to explore, discover and marvel at the world around them, to meet new friends and be supported to develop. To love to learn, and learn to love.
Dean Park Day Nursery offers full day care for children aged 3 months to 4 years.
Dean Park Day Nursery is situated in a picturesque location, close to the town centre, its vast open spaces have enabled us to create a setting that has a real focus on outdoor learning and discovery, allowing children to experience and interact with nature every day. With six acres of land surrounding the nursery, we also boast an impressive outdoor learning environment.
We appreciate that many parents have busy working lives, and we aim to support them by providing a safe, warm and loving space where each child is nurtured and cared for, whilst being guided by childcare experts through their very first learning adventures in creativity, discovery, nature and play. With us, your child will make new friends and move on to school with a firm foundation on which to build future success.
Creativity can transform understanding by fostering critical thinking, allowing children to review, reinvent and make new meanings for themselves. Our goal is to surround children with creative opportunities; nurturing their imagination and giving them the space to discover their own creativity.
Children need to discover the world for themselves, we just need to bring the world to them.
A child’s connection with nature acts as the foundation for learning valuable life skills that will enable them to succeed…
“I will understand problem solving, self-exploration, decision making, number relationships, structure, complex vocabulary, healthy living, cause and effect, creativity, imagination and thinking and my natural world when I am big because I played outside in nature when I was little.”
Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and, when the grass of the meadows is damp with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning…” Maria Montessori
