Our

Core Values

A rich curriculum that changes form and shape to meet your children’s learning style and needs. We say goodbye to rigid, boring planning that leaves the children on themargin and we say welcome to vibrant, flexible and inspiring teaching.

Forming strong relationships with our parents. We are parents, we understand what it means to trust your child to a stranger,we understand your anxiety, your fears, your efforts, and we are here to support you, listen to you, understand and whenever possible guide you. You are a part of our team, not an observant.

This is of great importance to us and everything we plan for the children aims towards that. When children form strong relationships and secure attachments,they are confident to explore and put their ideas to the test, ready to learn, have fun, try, fail, try and achieve. But most of all, we want them to enjoy and have fun in everything they do. The rest comes naturally.

We invest in our teacher’s training so they can fully understand and know how to implement learning in a safe premises, risks assessment, a fully trained Designated Safeguarding Officer, daily checks, policies and procedures in place, robust recruitment process and enhanced DBS checks are some of the things we have implemented to secure our nursery. We do take it seriously.

It is not just another job. It is demanding and challenging and requires expertise, patience, passion and the drive to make a difference in children’s lives.

We reflect on our practise, discuss our next steps, observe and learn from our children, laugh and play with them, get messy, read stories changing our voice, sing like Julie Andrews and fight fires like fire-fighters daily. Not everyone is suitable to do the job. We are grateful we can do what we love and hopefully make a difference in our children’s lives. They definitely make a difference in ours.

Testimonials

The Colour Box provides a warm, joyful atmosphere for the children. I am impressed by the enthusiastic and professional staff and the range of topics and activities.
Georgina culme-seymour
The team care deeply about the stimulation and wellbeing of the children, this care is evident in their creation of an interesting and broad range of activities and topics for the children to explore. They listen to feedback and ideas from the children which is so lovely to see and they take the time to understand their specific interests and dislikes. Gently encouraging and supporting whilst allowing the child the opportunity to express themselves is something I value highly and it’s been wonderful to see the team express this in their work. The weekly newsletter is so fun and we enjoy reading it together each week and seeing everything my son has been up to (although he does share a lot as well). We have had a brilliant experience with the team, their vibrant, positive and gentle approach has helped my son to feel comfortable, safe, engaged and happy during his time at The Colour Box.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time at The Colour Box and always comes out high as a kite! She has hugely benefited from being able to play and build relationship with other children her age independently from her older sister. The educational programme is outstanding and its great to see what she is doing including singing songs to me and telling me about books the class has read together. A massive thank you to the Colour box team - you all clearly love your work and deeply invested in the children
