William House Nursery Baby Unit is a purpose-built unit, also comprising a further four large playrooms, one of which is used for messy creative play, a reception hall, cloak room, baby changing and bathroom facilities, laundry area for lovely clean bedding each day, and a kitchen for preparing bottles and serving meals. There is also a walled garden with a full safety floor for outdoor play with age-appropriate equipment.

The aim at William House Nursery is to provide the highest standards of care. William House pride ourselves in creating a homely, warm and happy environment for your baby to be guided through each stage. Providing opportunities to explore and discover through valuable play experiences and also socially meeting new little friends. It is important that children develop and progress at their own pace.

Parents can relax in the knowledge that their child is being cared for by a qualified, sensitive and capable team who have a keen insight into the needs of babies from birth to 2, in a secure and safe environment. All the equipment and resources have been specially chosen to help your baby's stages of development, helping to reach their full potential in their own time.

The nursery provides a balance of play and learning experiences, allowing the children to flourish during the vital years of discovery.

BabyWilliam House promotes communication and interaction cognition and learning, behavioural, emotional and social development or sensory and physical development - recognising the holistic nature of development and learning.

In addition to your Registration Form, a Care Plan is completed on entry. This enables the nursery team to get to know your baby's likes and dislikes, special dietary requirements, allergies and beliefs to ensure that we meet individual needs.

Each baby has an "All About Me" book, recording sleep and meal times and nappy changes. Your baby will have a learning journal including observations and a development record covering your baby's milestones.

William House Nursery provides high-quality childcare, ensuring that all children are happy, content and eager to learn.

Children's experiences in the earliest years of their lives are crucial to their development. From birth, children are already competent learners, and we build from there.

Toddler ReadingActivities are designed to offer the opportunity for your baby to explore large movements, vision and fine manipulative skills, hearing and speech and social and spontaneous play.

As your child progresses through the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, a few months before the age of three your child will begin their seamless transition to the 3 to 5 years Foundation Stage. Familiar staff throughout the nursery will make the transition very easy.

William House enjoys a working partnership with parents, who are kept fully informed of their child's progress and are encouraged to join in events within the nursery. Parents are invited into nursery to discuss their child's progress at any time, and also to open nights.
