Why Choose Us?

Deciding on the right nursery for your child is a very important decision to make and a child’s early childhood experiences often impact them for life.

Here at Sticky Fingers Day nursery we are a homely community setting and we aim to make children feel safe, secure and nurtured. We are committed to providing quality care and education for all the children here with us. Each child receives plenty of individual time and attention and we value the individuality of every child.

Our adult to child ratios are:
0-2 years old is a 1:3 ratio
2-3 years old is a 1:4 ratio
3-5 years old is a 1:8 ratio
However, our Early Years Teacher can have a ratio of 1:13 but we usually adhere to a 1:8 ratio unless in exceptional circumstances.

All the activities are carefully planned to suit the developmental needs of all of the children. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. The interests of the children are explored through exciting activities and the resources are varied and stimulating to maximise the learning opportunities that we provide.

If you would like to come and have a look at the nursery please call to make an appointment and we would be delighted to show you around.
