About Us

How is Reflections Nursery Different?

Well, we make a point of listening to children's theories and giving them the opportunity to test their hypotheses because we believe that's the way they learn. (We're happy to talk about this for hours if you'll let us). Our nursery is set in two buildings - a lovely Regency building and a gothic Tudor-style building, both on three floors with loads of space, lots of light and huge gardens. We make the nursery environment inspiring by offering lots of open-ended, natural and reclaimed resources for the children and they add their imaginations and creativity. You'll see what we mean when you visit.

 

UK Nursery of the Year in 2009 & 2010

We won the Nursery World UK Nursery of the Year in 2009/10 (the only time we’ve entered). Here's what judge, Wendy Scott had to say about Reflections: “Children have genuine choices and a lot of scope for exploration and expression in an engaging, beautiful and very well cared for environment. The creative and aesthetic awareness applied out of doors results in innovative provision. Staff take children’s ideas seriously giving them plenty of time.” ~Wendy Scott, Former Adviser to the Department for Education & Skills

 

Our Vision

We believe all children have the right to be understood as individuals and to be given time and opportunity to develop as creative, competent learners in an inspiring environment, with lots of access to the outdoors.

Our vision is to create a place that values caring, respectful relationships and make heard the voice of the child.
