Carousel Day Nursery, Motspur Park was founded in 1997 and is situated on the first floor of the Old Blues Rugby Club. The nursery is open Monday to Friday, from 8am (7.30am by request) to 6pm, fifty weeks of the year and cares for children from the ages of two to five years. We are a small team that have varied qualifications ranging from Level 4, 3,2 as well as nursery assistants. We undertake regular training to ensure up-to-date knowledge and quality practice.
Equality and diversity is recognised, respected and celebrated in the nursery. We embrace individuality and value every child and their family, thus promoting a culture of respect, confidence and positive self-esteem.
At Carousel we promote Cultural Capitals, we believe in giving the children the best possible start to their education and future, we as a nursery evaluate what we do and how they learn, through the EYFS and ‘awe and wonder’ moments. The foundation of our curriculum is knowing our children. We can then build on their individual experiences and promote a learning educational programme bespoke to them.
We acknowledge the formative, early years of a child’s life as crucial to their future learning, development and life chances. We believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life, helping them develop into happy, confident, sociable and independent people. At Carousel, we achieve this by working closely with families to promote tailored care and education for each child, guided by their own unique set of experiences, interests and needs.
