Parent Reviews

R, Current Parent

Speaking from my son’s experience he absolutely loves The Nursery (Wistaston). He speaks very highly of all the staff and will eat all kinds of foods that he won’t touch at home. Since moving from another nursery in November he’s come on leaps and bounds socially. He’s happy to go in a morning, in fact some weekend he’d rather be at nursery

Vicky, Current Parent

I’m really impressed at how the indoor setting has been refurbished and updated with some fantastic resources. I’m so pleased that they have recently announced they will be doing forest school as that’s such an exciting activity for the children. Our child also has an egg and dairy allergy and the nursery has been fantastic at offering him alternatives.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Corner House Wistaston! We offer forest school and playmakers, which is sports lessons, for toddlers to preschool at an additional charge but free for children that are full time with us.

As well as access to our 4 large fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. We take children out in groups, come rain or shine, to take part in a variety of activities set up by our staff. Wherever possible we try to take our indoor learning outside. We have a designated all weather area for the baby room children to explore and a soft play surface area for all of our children to use.

During our time outside we teach children how to assess risk, problem solve, share, gather and utilise from nature as we are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives. We are very fortunate to have our little allotment beds for planting and growing our own vegetables and a mud kitchen for exploratory role play while making changes wherever we can to make the world a cleaner place too!

Our youngest children are often seen out in our buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community. We use high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery. We have a playground, bike track, large natural garden area and separate baby garden that is no mowed. All children leave wellington boots and waterproof clothing at nursery so they can be appropriately dressed for all seasons!

We make this possible by supplying our children with home cooked nutritional food, bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables and all the essential ingredients necessary for healthy physical and mental development.

Whenever possible we source our food locally and organically, including seasonal vegetables and fruit into our menus. Our children have a choice of milk or water to drink throughout the day.

Our children have opportunities to excel as nursery gardeners to grow fruit and veg in our own allotment beds, providing fresh produce for our nursery.
