All ingredients are carefully sourced from trusted suppliers and we aim to cater for children with a range of dietary requirements. Our menus are always available for you to see and are rotated every three weeks. Fresh filtered water is available to the children at all times.
Meal times are enjoyable and interactive and our dedicated Anouska's team encourage good manners and communication by joining them as they dine and sitting at their level.
Become part of the family
Our family orientated approach means that you and your child are part of our Anouska's family. We believe that working in partnership with you is key to supporting your child's learning and development.
Regular communication between staff and parents, through daily handovers, progress reports, newsletters, parents' evenings and operating an open door policy will ensure your child is receiving the very best care.
Choosing a nursery for your little one can be a difficult decision to make, so we aim to offer support for you and your child to make the transition as smooth as possible.
We follow the Government's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and encorage all children to learn through play.
