Once Upon a Time Day Nursery (Feltham Hill)
Once Upon a Time is a one storey, self-contained building attached to Oak Hill Academy and the childcare provision linked to Feltham Hill Children’s Centre.
It is our mission to work alongside parents and their children in order to create an environment where there is a structured routine which will encourage children to express their feelings and develop a natural curiosity about the world. We promise to build confidence, self – respect and respect for others regardless of race, gender or culture. We will work closely with your child and ensure that there have ample opportunities to interact with one another as well as adults.
The tiny tots area (3 months to 2 years) and the pre-school (2 years to 5 years) are together in one room, although divided by screens. We have 63 children on our register including children from varied backgrounds including children who speak English as an additional Language.
