Description

Amersham Hospital Day Nursery is situated on the grounds of Amersham Hospital. Our garden overlooks the valley and we take advantage of the beautiful setting with walks to the nearby Memorial Gardens and paddle in the stream on warmer days!

The staff group is a well-established team, with some staff having worked in the nursery for over 10 years. The team and management support parents and carers throughout their time at the nursery. Where possible, we are flexible with the needs of individual families and children.

We support the needs of each individual child. Each child has their own Learning Journey throughout their time at the nursery. We have a dedicated team that ensures all children can access all that we offer. We have experience in multi-agency working and are building strong relationships with the local Child Development Team, speech and language therapists and physio and more.

We have in the past been awarded the Rights Respecting for Setting Award by UNICEF which encourages the children to develop an understanding of respectful behaviours.

All dietary requirements can be accommodated.
