CORVID 19

Our team and children are our priority concern.  Please be aware of the changes and updates by staying up to date via our famly App.

We want to ensure we are minimising the impact and reducing the possibility of exposure for children, families and staff in appropriate ways within our nurseries. 

We have policies to protect against the spread of any serious disease, including infection control, and we closely monitor and follow guidance from the relevant Public Health agencies, as well as the World Health Organisation and local health authorities.

The Nursery health and hygiene practices provide some of the best defences against the spread of most contagious illnesses. In addition to these, we have introduced some key measures of how we can work together to reduce the risks of cross infection.  All of these have been advised to parents on Boards and Famly.

Ofsted, the early years’ regulator for childcare settings in England, has confirmed that they class the current situation as one which meets their threshold of “exceptions” in the Early Years Statutory Framework.  This enables nurseries to adjust staff to child ratios, if necessary, to continue to provide care and education.  Any changes we need to make will be fully risk assessed and will always prioritise the quality of care, safety and security of the children.  Any updates will be provided asap on our App.

PLEASE REFER TO OUR CRITICAL WORKER REPONSE.

The purpose of this FlowChart is to make sure all parents know the Policy

30 Hour Government Funding Available

Your Trusted Child Care Provider

Outline of Funding Info:

Please speak to your Nursery Manager to find out more:-

All 3 and 4-year-olds in England currently receive 15 hours a week government funded early education. If their parents are living and working in England, 3 and 4-year-olds may be entitled to 30 hours funded childcare, which is up to 1,140 hours per year in total!

If eligible you will be entitled to access the 30 funded hours from the beginning of the term following your child’s 3rd birthday. At The Oxford Nursery, we want to make sure that families can utilise this funding to its fullest potential. This is why we stretch the funding across 52 weeks as opposed to the term time 38 week period. Our parents work all year and have asked for annualised prices and annualised funding allocations.  This enables part-time families to access more of the funded hours than would otherwise be available to them if restricted under a term time structure. For more information about how this scheme works just ask your nursery manager.

The Pre-school Seat of Learning

Over 20 years of caring pre-school education

The Oxford Nursery has always been the pre-school seat of learning.  Children lead and create their own play both indoors and outside.  By ensuring children feel safe and secure, they are encouraged to play and learn with gentle guidance by adults.  Whether it is close motor skills work or cloud interpretations its all fun and its all educational.

Being part of the nursery from Freshers (0-2 years), Sophomores (2-3 years) and Scholars (3-5 years) the children make friends, interact with each other and staff throughout their time with us.  In no time at all you will learn the names of your childrens new friends and carers.

We love messy play, just look at our Facebook page to see all the daily activities the children get up too.  Imaginations run wild from spacemen & dinosaurs to all the colours of the rainbow.  

Regular gardening and growing all sorts of great vegetables are then harvested and cooked, often by our little chefs.  We are certain we will have a Cordon Bleu chef someday.

All of these experiences and learning journeys are captured throughout the day and parents/guardians receive daily updates.

We think these comments really speak for themselves.  We constantly ask for feedback, hopefully one day you will give us a positive review.

My son has been attending the Oxford Nursery, Summertown since he was 6 months old. It is a wonderful, warm and friendly place, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. My son is very happy there, and has developed strong bonds with his carers in the baby room. The staff really care for the children, and take a genuine interest in their well-being. Communication is excellent. There is always a wide range of activities on offer, and lots of outdoor play. My son has made excellent progress with his development during his time at the nursery, and I feel very lucky to have found such a nurturing environment for him.

Mrs H

My little boy settled in with no problems. They all treat him as they would their own. It’s like one big family!

 

Mrs B

Exceptional place. My heart was so happy knowing that in the difficult time of having to leave my baby, he was with such caring souls. This whole nursery is warm and welcoming and creates a loving environment for babies and children. I will most definitely always speak of this place with the highest regard and utmost love and respect. Thank you for looking after my baby so compassionately.

Mrs C.B

Both of our children have attended the Oxford Nursery over a number of years, we have watched both of them grow in confidence and academic skills due to the encouragement and support they received.  There was every effort made to ensure both of them were happy and developed good citizenship skills. Our daughter made a smooth transition to primary school and we know our son will too.  Thank you for all of the support you have provided our children.  You have helped them and us during these key developmental years.  We know they both have strong foundations for every adventure they face in the future due in part to their time at the Oxford Nursery.

Mr & Mrs W.M

Oxford Nursery is fabulous!! I have 2 little girls (2 and 10 months) and they always come home from nursery very happy, which is the best indicator of how well a nursery is doing. The staff are brill and are constantly thinking of creative ways to teach the children. Their enthusiasim and patience is remarkable. I am always exctied to see what they have been up to and it is always something that the girls are facinated with - from water play, learning from nature, themed days, cooking, sensory experiences, singing... The team have endless energy and are always accomodating to the parents and of course the childrens needs! I could go on but you get the idea!

Mrs N

My two children have had an awesome few days at the Eynsham nursery over the summer!
Everyone has been so helpful, professional and happy and I would like to say a massive thank you to you all, I have two tired but happy children 😴😍

Mrs W

Our son has been at the Summertown Oxford Nursery since he was 9 weeks. Yes they will take babies that young and whilst I appreciate that isn't for everyone, they have been fantastic with him and a great support for me as a first time mum. The staff are friendly, caring and genuinely passionate about their work and the children they care for. The online learning journal and detailed handovers each day mean we know what he's been up to and how he's developing and we can let them know what he does when he's not at nursery.

 

They have great facilities including both a sand garden and the more regular grass kind with a herb patch and a mud kitchen among other things.

 

If you are looking for a friendly environment where you can trust that your child is getting a good start in life this is definitely a good choice.

Mrs M

Such a wonderful place for the children to start education.  Everyday something new and exciting is planned, lots of activities with plenty of good food and outside play.  We really feel like the nursery team is part of the family.
