Riverside Nursery – begin your adventure.
When your maternity leave is nearing its end, you need to start looking for that special place where your child will begin their next big adventure!
Finding a nursery needn’t be a chore
Looking after young babies is extremely time-consuming and exhausting for young parents. Whilst you might have a general idea of the sorts of requirements (facilities, environment, location) that you want from a nursery provider, finding a perfect match is not always easy.
Staff make the difference
Riverside Nursery in Wandsworth, South West London is an extremely popular nursery with young parents. It’s not just the facilities, location and learning ethos of Riverside that makes it a first choice. Parents are united in endorsing the caring, professionalism and warmth of the staff. The people employed by a nursery make it – and that’s what defines Riverside and its childcare provision.
All about Riverside
Riverside is a beautifully designed and 100% child-focused place with large and well-equipped, indoor and outdoor spaces. It has been often described as a ‘home from home’.
The nursery caters for both full and part-time children between the ages of three months to five years. Babies are looked after in their own suite of rooms with low staffing ratios. A typical day starts at 8 am until 6 pm Mondays to Fridays throughout the year, with short breaks at Christmas, Easter and during August.
Montessori: developing happy, able children
Riverside adopts the Montessori learning programme. This is designed to fully prepare children for their next stage of schooling and is intertwined with the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) leading children towards a number of early learning goals.
All play spaces are very much designed to support children to actively learn new skills, try different things and take part in a wide range of learning experiences. However young your child is, there is always something going on to truly captivate and enthral them. From music and art, to simple counting, developing the senses and practical skills like listening, our staff aim to please everyone: from babies to active toddlers!
Sandra Taylor, founder and owner of Riverside is clear about why she set the nursery up: “I wanted to create an environment where children could start to develop the skills and confidence to achieve their true potential. Creating a ‘home from home’ was also important as we are extremely aware that leaving young children and babies in someone else’s care is not an easy decision for young parents. We try our best to reach out to children and engage them in lots of fun, exciting and enriching experiences. We love our work and hope to make a real difference to each and every child that we look after.”
Places are available for new babies aged 0-1 year from September, 2016.
