The Maggie & Rose Nursery

Here at the Maggie & Rose Nursery, we want the children in our care to grow up to be successful, confident and well-rounded people, which goes so much further than just education. This is where the Maggie & Rose ‘Eat, Play, Learn’ method comes in…

 

Our approach to learning through food, art and imagination is unique and bespoke to the Maggie & Rose brand. Our ethos is to learn through creative play, from our Cook and Count classes which teach maths through cooking,  to our ABC Art classes which teach phonics through Art. The curriculum is designed to teach children amazing skills using educational, fun, interesting and confidence-building methods.

 

Maggie & Rose is more than just a nursery, we are a family lifestyle brand. We provide whatever families need, from birthday parties, general advice and peer support to our bespoke classes. We’ve built a full 2-year programme of hundreds of classes that span across the arts, allowing kids to get messy and be tactile. This runs alongside our own teacher training programme and has really helped to position us as a family lifestyle brand dedicated to bringing families innovative ways of learning and interacting together.

What mum’s are saying about us…

My son absolutely adores it. They do great interesting activities, the staff are truly wonderful and have been pivotal in the development of my little two-year-old guy who is such a lovely little boy (toast thrown across the kitchen in fury this morning aside) I would recommend without question, it’s really the loveliest nursery I could have found.

Maggie & Rose have proved a safe and entertaining environment for my son since the age of 1. He has enjoyed very long action-packed days there (max. 8.30-6pm), 2-3 days a week for nearly 2 years. The nursery provides healthy meals (mostly cooked) and snacks, nappies and even spare clothing and sleep toys when required.

I have found the staff to be absolutely wonderful and engaging, both in Babies and Toddlers. They have been attentive to our individual needs. I would not hesitate in recommending Maggie & Rose as I feel the care they have shown my son has been first class.

The Maggie & Rose Nursery is vibrant and imaginative and thoughtfully designed with kids in mind (from toddler height tables and chairs, miniature shopping trolleys and kitchen corners, a village green, tree house and a double-decker bus that doubles as an arts and crafts studio, the environment is exciting and inspiring for kids).

The nursery staff I have met are all knowledgeable, caring and detail focused on your little one. The staff are not afraid to get their hands dirty with lots of fun messy activities (sand, water, paints, playdough). They provide a wide range of daily activities including reading, arts, crafts, music, sports and creative play.

There is a reassuring focus on EYFS goals with different weekly/bi-weekly themes for activities. They provide updates for each child with pictures and notes of milestones in their development so parents don’t miss out. My little boy has had a lovely experience there so far and they are currently helping us with potty training!

Our values are at the heart of all we do. We inspire creativity in our team and make sure all our activities are visually inviting to keep our little ones stimulated and engaged. As always, we add a bit of Maggie & Rose magic to ensure we have a unique and playful experience for our little ones.

We’re passionate about allowing children the time and space to explore and develop at their own pace. We use the EYFS to ensure children are developing holistically but still meeting key milestones.

Our team is well equipped to work with children with special needs and children who have English as an additional language.

Through our online learning journal, Tapestry, we share observations from your children’s time in the nursery. We also encourage parents to add their own contributions, as we love to see what our children get up to at home.

Health & safety

We have a Health & Safety Co-ordinator who liaises with Management on safety measures within the nursery, implementing and updating our H&S policies and procedures in line with the regulatory bodies such as Ofsted, Environmental Health and our local Borough. We will do all that is reasonable to safeguard and promote the children’s welfare to the highest standard of care.

 

Maggie & Rose Nursery is fully committed to ensuring that all children are kept safe and well. We take all necessary steps to ensure staff are well trained and understand their duties. Our policies are in line with the guidance and procedures of both Hounslow and Kensington & Chelsea Safeguarding Children Board. They also have regard to the Government’s statutory guidance ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’.

Communication

As a Maggie & Rose Nursery Parent, you get access to Tapestry, an online learning portal that will allow you to keep up with your child’s progress each week. This is updated by the practitioners and will contain photos, achievements and key updates. You will also receive weekly email updates on any changes within the Nursery as well as anything coming up the following week that we feel parents need to be made aware of.

 

We host parent’s evenings twice a year, we also have a curriculum evening as well as a Nursery graduation day for those kids who are going on to school. You also have the chance to talk to practitioners during pick-up and drop off times.
