Welcome By Kathy

I am delighted to welcome you to Bertie’s NurserySchool.

I am very proud to be Head of Bertie’s Nursery School where we have created an exceptional, homely environment located in the idyllic and safe countryside within The Downs Preparatory School Estate.

Here at Bertie’s we aim to deliver a rich and broad curriculum following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with a strong focus on traditional British values, kindness and the belief in the importance of good manners. At the heart of our philosophy is the commitment to nurture each child’s development in a warm and invigorating atmosphere, encouraging open minds and resilience.

We look forward to seeing you and your children at the beginning and end of each day. We will ensure high levels of communication through the Connect Childcare software system, email and telephone. My staff and I look forward to meeting you at our parents’ evenings and giving you further information in our Friday newsletters. I believe it is vital that we all communicate and work together so that we can all support your child’s individual needs. I want Bertie’s to be a place your child loves and a place to learn through laughter.

Best wishes

Kathy

We are delighted of your interest; a warm welcome.

Bertie’s Nursery takes its name from a beautiful young Labrador puppy that happened to be eating the legs of a chair at the time the idea of the nursey was conceived. He is now a handsome, happy, gentle dog, pleased to see everyone. He is also a regular visitor.

Bertie’s Nursery has similarly grown and evolved into a wonderfully happy community of  little people. From concept it opened almost as a building site in January 2018. A year on it is now a glorious nursery set in idyllic parkland. It boasts exceptional facilities that include a Forest School, a large all weather outdoor play area much likened to Telly Tubby Land and large, light, airy rooms for each age group. As stated it has also quickly become a warm, happy community, centred round the development of each individual little child.

We aim to provide a warm, safe, family environment in which each child is happy. Within this setting we nurture confidence, curiosity and courtesy. We are certainly not a hothouse, rather we aspire to equip each of our children with the skills necessary to successfully approach and enjoy the more formal learning of school, and life, as they move on.  

We provide a rich, diverse programme based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.We also enjoy close links with The Downs Preparatory School; just half a mile down the drive we often visit Pets Corner, the amazing Tree House and occasionally gently partake in some Music and PE lessons with the Reception classes. These are fun but the mini bus drive is the main interest of the young children! We firmly believe in fresh air, wellies and muddy knees. Good manners,kindness and respect are essentially, constantly engendered.  

We appreciate what an enormous decision it is to send your child to nursery and we never underestimate the trust you place in us to look after your children. We much enjoy getting to know you all and we consdier it to be a privilege to be part of your children’s start in life.

Inevitably the website can only provide a small taste of what we have to offer at Bertie’s. We nevertheless hope it proves sufficient to encourage you to come and visit us; you will be warmly welcomed by a community of happy people.

Children Learn what they Live

By Dorothy Law Nolte
If a child lives with encouragement
He learns with confidence
If a child lives with praise
He learns to appreciate
If a child lives with fairness
He learns justice
If he lives with approval
He learns to like himself
If a child live with acceptance and friendship
He learns to find love in the world

Testimonials

“My husband and I cannot recommend Bertie’s highly enough. The facilities are wonderful, most of all the fabulous garden and surrounding woodland, which allows for some great adventures for the boys. But more than this is the team- it’s an infectious place of laughter, learning and love. We are always safe in the knowledge that our children are nurtured and cared for, while being inspired to learn”

Testimonials

Our son started at Bertie’s, when he was 1 year old. He quickly settled into Mini Movers, where the staff were kind, warm and welcoming. His learning diary is always really detailed and clearly show the children variety of exciting and topical activities that he has completed. Online, we can view observations of him learning and completing key skills, it's is an excellent interactive piece of software. The outside play environment is brilliant, the children are always  out and about happily interacting with the staff, who gently challenge the children to explore this area. Forest School is already a firm favourite with him, especially 'the mallows' and hot chocolate with Caterpillar. After all their busy work it is reassuring that the children have a hearty, home cooked lunch and snack. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff at Berties, a welcome smile is  shared by all. J is thriving in their care- he loves being part of the Bertie’s family.

Testimonials

"From the wonderfully warm welcome on arrival, to the detailed, information packed report at every collection time, Bertie’s Nursery School and its tip top team of first class staff is truly outstanding in every way.  Our granddaughter, currently in Mini Movers, is developing at a rapid rate, both socially and academically, surrounded by an abundance of resources, in a completely safe environment and happily immersed in an impressive programme, which, on a daily basis, supports all her individual needs.  A combination of happy, well cared for children, their ever devoted families and a dedicated and tireless staff combine to produce an extraordinarily vibrant community, which is really second to none, in which every child can thrive and successfully achieve its full potential."

Testimonials

'Our daughter has been at Bertie's since the very first day it opened its doors. A year on and we're just as impressed by the warmth, fun, and excellent learning that is at the heart of the Bertie's community. Our child has blossomed into a confident, curious and caring person who will be more than ready to start school when the time comes.

It's the extras that make Bertie's extra special: Weekly forest school, Stretch & Grow physical education, dance classes, healthy home-cooked food from Bertie's own kitchen, visits from art and music practitioners and 'community heroes' such as the police,.. the list goes on. All activities are designed and supported by enthusiastic, experienced, affectionate staff who really get to know each child - their personalities, needs, friendships and families. And all this, set in beautiful, practical gardens and grounds, where free flow in and out is the norm, whatever the weather.

We couldn't be happier at Bertie's. As our daughter once said: 'Bertie's is a sparkling place!' It will be hard to leave for school when the time comes, but we have a feeling that the friendships made here with staff, parents and children will continue on.'

Testimonials

"Everyday Jack sprints into Bertie's with a shout of Bertie’s and without a backwards glance, he loves it. The amount of outdoor play and varied activities provided is fantastic. The staff are extremely caring and know the children inside out, they are constantly helpful and wise."


Testimonials

"My daughter has been going to Berties since it opened in January 2018. She absolutely loves it and doesn't give me a backward glance when I drop her off! The staff are warm, friendly and attentive, and so obviously enjoy working with their little charges. The facilities are second to none, particularly the extensive outdoor space where they charge around in the fresh air, get muddy and having lots of fun.  If you imagined an ideal nursery for your baby, toddler or preschooler, this would undoubtedly be it."
