About Us

HMS SandfordAt Sandytots, we have high expectations of ourselves. We aim to provide high quality care and a wide range of stimulating and fun experiences that will help children develop the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to help them make sense of the world in which we live.

The rooms are laid out in well organised areas, where appropriate equipment and materials are easily accessible to the children, enabling them to make choices and become independent learners. All nursery rooms lead out to secure and well equipped gardens.

We have a fantastic outdoor area split into two sections for younger children ‘Starfish Room’ aged 0-2 years old and older children ‘Pufferfish Room’ 2-5 years old. This secure play area gives children the opportunity to spend time each day getting plenty of fresh air. A range of toys are available, from balls and bikes to the large climbing frame, mud kitchen and a sand pit.

Sandytots Nursery runs a ‘Key Worker’ system. This means your child will be allocated a member of staff who has responsibility for developing a trusting and caring relationship with you and your child.

It is important that children feel that they ‘belong’ and their key worker will ensure new children are settled into the group as quickly and easily as possible. Parent/carers are encouraged to visit with their child prior to starting nursery to help build up their confidence in this new environment.

Your child’s key worker will ensure your child is developing a range of new skills and is settled and happy. We aim to work in partnership with you to ensure that this happens and provide regular opportunities for you to discuss your child’s progress.
