high quality childcare and educational learning opportunities through
first hand real life early years experiences. We recognise the child as
an individual and work as a key approach with families to care for their
needs. Our highly skilled practitioners tailor their practice, through varied
language to further challenge their thinking, adapting the environment
“I have always found the management at Fledgelings
friendly, supportive, approachable and generous with
their time. The other positive thing is they really take on
board whatever topic we bring to the nursery or want
to talk about. An active effort is always present from all
the management. I also love their humanness, I feel like I
have actual people supporting us who are grandma’s and
mums and that really makes a difference. Everybody is
always really understanding.
Overall I am really pleased Debyani attends Fledgelings
and think it’s a fantastic nursery and have applied for a
place for my second daughter.” Seema Barua

Partnership with Families
Each family is assigned a Key person and Buddy. The key person helps the child and parent/carer during their transition into
nursery and this professional relationship is crucial, providing continuity of care, developing a secure attachment with the child.
We encourage a positive partnership. Continuously exchanging information to further meet the child’s needs to ensure the child
feels safe and secure in familiarly surroundings, thriving to become a strong confident, capable learner.
Our practitioners are aware that even when children are happy and settled it can be a big step for them to move to a new room
within the provision with older children or different activities and routines.
Room-to-room transitions also requires planning and staff ensure that children are fully supported in this move. Key points we
consider include the following.
• Introduce a new key person to the child and his or her parents before they move rooms.
• Organise settling-in sessions in the new room so that children can adjust to the new environment and staff gradually.
• Consider how a child’s friendships will be affected by moving rooms.
• Transitional objects such as special teddies or blankets may help the process.
Healthy eating is not just about what we put on the plate. It is
about educating the children and giving them the knowledge and
independence to make healthy choices that will leave them in good
stead for the future.
We have a huge responsibility to make sure the food served is of the best quality
Many of the children at Fledgelings eat up to ten meals at nursery a
week, making this the majority of their weekly nutritional intake. For
us, this is a huge responsibility and we want to ensure that everything
the children eat is of the best quality, the menus are balanced and the
children enjoy their food.
“My daughter is currently in the Preschool room and
has attended Fledgelings for over 3 years. During her
time there, She has made outstanding progress both
academically and socially and I credit this to the care
and education provided by the staff.
There have been many changes at Fledgelings over the
years but the leadership provided by both Salma and
Tammy have ensured that my daughter and the other
children are at the centre of every decision made. The
staff are highly trained and well equipped to deliver
the EYFS curriculum and this is evident in both my
daughter’s attainment and also in her desire to come to
nursery and learn.” Miss A. McAuliffe
We felt so passionately about this that we have teamed up with the
the Children’s Food Trust, a highly prestigious and influential partners.
By trying to achieve this recognition we are guaranteeing that the
food we serve your children is locally sourced, high quality, freshly
prepared and nutritionally balanced.
We are lucky to have talented and passionate people working with us
to create these fantastic meals for the children. Our chef love coming
up with new ways to excite the children with food and even enjoy
getting out into the nursery to cook with them - a messy job indeed.
