Curriculum and Training

All our Nurseries are Ofsted registered, who carry out regular, unannounced inspections to ensure we comply with the National Welfare Standards and are delivereing quality care and education to all.


We are members of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA), which offers regular training events, area networks and general up to date advice and information for promoting quality child care and education.


Parental partnerships form an important part of Nursery life. At Clowns, we provide parents with comprehensive records on the progress of their children. Regular opportunities are available for parents to meet the staff both informally and at parents’ evenings. 


Our staff take part in regular training, both in house and externally in areas such as Paediactric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding, Children’s Behaviour, the Early Years Foundation Stage and many more.


We have a dedicated Development and Training Manager, whose role is to drive continuous improvement across our Nurseries.
