At Oak Tree Day Nursery, we believe a healthy meal is an important part of your child's day, all of our sessions provide a healthy and balanced meal giving you reassurance that when you leave your child with us they will be given a healthy and nutritious meal. All of our children are provided with the same meal and sit down together to enjoy it as a social occasion giving them the chance to discus and enjoy the food together. This is especially beneficial for the older children. 

All of our food is prepared on site daily by our experience cook. Our cook has more than 10 years experience working in an Early Years setting cooking for children.

Healthy and Saftey / Security

At Oak Tree Day Nursery we believe that the safety of the children in our care is absolutely essential. The nursery is fully air conditioned with separate room control temperature switches.

The care of babies and infants goes straight into to the very roots of human society. Nothing can be more important than the safety and wellbeing of our children. Oaktree Nursery rooms have been specially designed, we provide child level toilets, wash basins and ample storage for all our toys. Oak Tree is inspected by the council health & safety officer and is registered and inspected by OFSTED.

The Nursery operates a door entry system with the latest bio metrics finger print system as well as password entry for any relatives picking up your child. The Building is a purpose-built nursery therefore the welfare of our guests has been designed from the planning stages of the nursery to the completion of the building. 

There is plenty of free parking available.



What is Tapestry?

Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the setting.

Each individual child is provided with their own Learning Journal online. Parents and carers will be given their own log-in using their email and a password. Parents/carers can change their settings so that an email is automatically generated informing you when an observation has been added. You may add comments of your own and moments you would like to share with us.

Parents/carers can access Tapestry by provding us with an email address, this is limited to two email address per child. You may share your log in details with extended family if you wish so they can see your child’s Learning Journal.
