Welcome to My First Friends
We are a community based nursery situated across the field from Westdene Primary School, with our own enclosed area in a walled and gated playground with climbing apparatus. We open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday 8.30-4.00, we are open during term times and holidays, closing only for Bank Holidays and Christmas.
The nursery has been open for over 50 years, catering for children between 18 months and 5 years of age from diverse cultural backgrounds. .
A wide range of stimulating activities are provided by experienced staff to aid the holistic development of children through play and interaction with others.
We have a committed team of highly qualified, experienced staff, all of whom hold current DBS checks, and are committed to receiving regular, ongoing training. All staff hold Paediatric First Aid qualifications, and positions of responsibility such as SENCO and Child Protection Representatives, Health & Safety and Equal Opportunity.
As we believe strongly in parent partnership, we operate a key person system for a better relationship between child and parent and the link with home. We recognize that parents are the children's FIRST educator. We fundraise throughout the year to provide new resources for our children and the nursery.
