Once Upon a Time - Hanworth
We offer a warm, friendly, caring and safe environment. All staff are child care and first aid trained and we have good staff ratios and offer one-to-one support for children with special needs.
We encourage the children to learn and reach their full potential through play. Each child is respected as an individual and we aim to create a fun environment. As well as an attractive spacious indoor room and wet play area, we have an outside play area which includes a safe surface area, a grass area, a water feature, a sandpit that the children can climb into and a gardening area.
Parents are encouraged to be involved in their children's learning and come along to the events organised by the staff. We offer settling in periods and take children who are not toilet trained.
