Safehands Nursery at Monks caters for children aged from birth to five years old. We share our building with a children’s centre. We are located on a bus route and are within walking distance of the town centre. We are open for 51 weeks of the year with the exception of bank holidays.

We have 2 rooms all situated on the ground floor. Our baby room caters for children aged from birth to two years old. We have a mixed 2’s to preschool room with facilities to cater for their needs. We accept 2 year funded children and preschool grants.

We have a qualified and dedicated staff team, who are committed to the care and development of the children attending our setting. Through external and in-house training we keep our training needs up to date.

Each child is allocated a key person who will ensure your child is settled, stimulated and challenged whilst in the nursery environment, they are responsible for your child’s learning journey and will work closely alongside you to plan effective next steps to ensure your child is reaching his/her full potential.

We have an outdoor area for all children to access and there is a dedicated space for our older children and a separate space for babies to play safely. We consider ourselves fortunate that our nursery is attached to the children’s centre and we have access to some of their facilities like the sensory room which promotes sensory and physical skills.

We have a green ethos within our nursery, encouraging children to recycle and grow fruit and vegetables during the summer months. We have a fantastic onsite cook who cooks all of our meals from scratch. We value parents’ input into our nursery and our nursery cook will work with you when planning any dietary requirements your child might need.
