KINGSWOOD Day Nursery - Alderholt

Our Team:


All of our lovely practitioners have been specially chosen to care for and educate your children on a daily basis and make their earliest years the happiest ones.


It is the staff that add the special magic to your children’s day and therefore practitioners are selected very carefully having successfully completed a rigorous recruitment process.

All practitioners hold an enhanced DBS check (police check)

 Practitioners are trained in paediatric first aid,health and safety, food                      hygiene, and specific age group training. 

All room leaders have at least a level 3 childcare qualification

 2 practitioners are forest school leaders

All practitioners have safeguarding/child protection knowledge and training 

Training is on going for all staff.  We work closely with the National Day Nursery Association. The training received is above and beyond mandatory requirements. 


Settling sessions are a lovely way of introducing your child and your family to the nursery gradually.
Settling sessions are held before joining the nursery, and are completely free of charge.

Settling sessions are a fantastic opportunity to build strong, friendly relationships with the people you will come into contact with at KingsWood. Settling sessions are a time for you and your child to come along and play. You will chat with your child's designated key person sharing information about your child and family life. Whilst you chat, your child will be playing and meeting the children who they will become friends with. 

Your family will be assigned a key person. The role of a key person is to ensure that your child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs, and your wishes. The key person also help's your family become familiar with the setting. Settling sessions are usually between 1-2 hours long, with at least 2 settling sessions being attended. However, every family is different and we will tailor your settling sessions to meet your needs. 


Feedback from our most recent Outstanding Ofsted inspection; "The staff provide a rich environment for the children to enjoy. The highly dedicated staff team plan and set up each learning environment indoors and out. Highly dedicated staff support children to make excellent progress. The secure attachments between children and their key person support children to feel secure and confident as they learn."
