Enabling Environments

At Railway Children we look at what and how we do things and how we can raise the quality of our service and teaching. We have undertaken various quality assurance schemes. We maintain higher than required staff ratios to enable us to visit local attractions or offer one to one care when needed. All of our staff are qualified from a minimum of level 2 through to foundation degree level.

ECERS: Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale.

In this we scored well above average in all areas in particular gaining full marks for staff and children interaction and programme structure, we also have ITERS (Infant and Toddler Environmental Rating Scale) for the under 3's.

Pre School Learning Alliance Quality Assurance: Reflecting on Quality.

We were praised for reflecting on our quality of teaching, our environment, healthy eating/freshly prepared meals, staff ratios and qualifications and training and parental involvement.

Eco Nurseries Silver Award

We identified areas where we could be more eco minded by turning off unnecessary appliances, composting waste and recycling paper & plastics, mobile phones & ink cartridges. We encourage the children through activities and involve parents too. We are now working towards Green Flag.

Testimonials - Here's what our parents have to say...

Amazing! My girls have loved coming here and we have many amazing memories too!

Very positivie, friendly, sensible staff which the children clearly like. We have always felt comfortable that our children are safe, enjoying play and also learning too.

Excellent! Since starting in 2015, it's felt like leaving her with extended family each day and I don't think you can ever ask for more than that from a nursery.
