" The contribution of the early years provision to the well-being of the children is outstanding." - Ofsted.
Not only are we graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in every area of the care and learning requirements, but we are also the ONLY Day Nursery in the area to be awarded Millie's Mark accreditation.
From the moment you enter the grounds of The Wendy House and drive past our lovely old willow trees you know that this is no ordinary Nursery. The peaceful setting, beautiful surroundings and sense of calm all help to give parents a feeling that this Nursery is rather special.
Set in 4 acres of beautiful park and farm land, it would be hard to find a more natural setting for children. The building itself is a converted stable block and all the rooms are large with lots of natural light, making them bright and welcoming. It is situated just five minutes from the A1198 and just ten minutes from the town of Royston and is perfectly located for many commuter routes and the outlying villages.
Many things set The Wendy House apart from other local settings and we are proud to be unique. Not least with our very own allotment but also a Forest School, affectionately known as 'Wendy Wood', an amazing woodland camp just a few minutes from the Nursery building where children can climb, explore and learn about their surroundings and enjoy homemade soup around the campfire!
Owners, Matt and Jacquie are on-site every day and their passion and commitment to The Wendy House is total. They are constantly looking at ways to improve and up-date to ensure that the children receive the highest standard of care and resources. They are fully commited to an on-going programme of staff training and offer their staff the highest levels of support to ensure positive outcomes for children.
The success and excellent reputation the Nursery enjoys is very much based on their philosophy that, as far as the childcare sector is concerned, "small is beautiful". This philosophy also enables the Nursery to build strong relationships with parents - a key factor in the Nursery's overall package of care. They know that to be able to ensure the child's individual needs are being met, working with, and listening to, parents is vital. They welcome comments and feedback and their parent emailing system ensures that the Nursery keeps an on-going stream of information and open dialogue.
