We are really pleased with our new facilities at our Felcott Road nursery Walton-on-Thames. Earlier in the year we decided to build a brand new eco-friendly outdoor classroom as there was high demand for extra nursery spaces locally. The new outdoor classroom has now been built and is a truly lovely, inspiring and creative space! It benefits from being air-conditioned, so the children can keep cool in summer and it is proving to be toasty warm when the weather is cold outside. There are now five classrooms all with individual gardens and a wonderful, large outdoor garden area, full of creative play resources and plenty of space for the children to run around in.
With the addition of two new classrooms our total capacity has increased to 123 children. We have also just finished adding an additional outdoor classroom with a wonderful new toddler garden space.
This outdoor space is designed to increase children’s investigative and imaginative play. Each section of the children’s play space has a specific purpose; physical areas to push the children to new places and reach new goals and an allotment for the children to learn and explore about the world around us and how things grow.
A parent recently told us what is special about this nursery: “The children love the outdoor space here at Toad Hall Felcott Road. They have so much space to play in and explore their surroundings and they get a lot of opportunity to play out doors.”
The Toad Hall Nursery group also has an under 3’s unit in Cambridge Road, Walton-on-Thames which has excellent child-centred facilities and is run along the same principles as the Toad Hall Felcott Road nursery.
Ideal childcare choice for working parents
As Toad Hall Felcott Road nursery Walton-on-Thames is only 7 minutes walk from the train station, and opens early from 7.30am, we cater well for working parents, whether they are commuting to London or for those who live locally. Everything is provided at nursery whether that is great food, nappies or sun cream, a great peace of mind to busy parents on a work day morning!
At Toad Hall we place a great deal of emphasis on staffing and training. At our Walton-on-Thames nursery we have 35 qualified nursery staff in total and we’re really lucky that our staff seem to enjoy working for us – with a great long-service record ranging from 2 to 17 years!
Ready and well prepared for school
Children who attend Toad Hall nurseries are particularly well prepared when it comes to starting school and as one parent commented:
“My two children have both very much enjoyed their time at Toad Hall. The staff are kind, fond of the children and passionate about what they do. My daughter is now in Reception at school and when she started she had been very well prepared by Toad Hall, which made the transition into school so much easier. She started school with a good grasp of letters and phonics, which has stood her in great stead. ”
At the moment the nursery staff and management are focusing on settling in our new children who came over recently from our Manor Road nursery in Walton-on-Thames, now closed, and we look forward to meeting our new parents at our upcoming events.
