What professionals say...

''Just wanted to drop you a line to say how lovely it was spending the day at Watoto last Thursday.

It was a real pleasure to spend the day in a Nursery that so clearly has the children at the centre of everything they do! All of the staff, including the young man that was on placement with you, were so invested in the children and from talking to key workers, they knew their children inside out! The genuine care every single staff member had for each of those children was evident through the interactions seen from Sharon, at the top, right through all the staff and even to Ola who perhaps knows the children the least but demonstrated so much time and patience and care with the children.

The attitudes of the staff towards the children in provision with additional needs was fantastic. Supportive, understanding and willing to ask and learn from information we gave – nothing felt like too much trouble for them.

The Nursery as a whole has such a lovely, welcoming atmosphere and being present to witness lunchtime was fantastic. The way the children were sat, in small groups, chatting, serving their own food, pouring their own drinks and developing so much independence and social skills was truly wonderful to see and is a practice that so many other settings would really benefit from observing and implementing.


The ethos and values of the Nursery are truly reflected in all the wonderful practice I saw.


Myself and my Teaching Assistant were both in awe of the wonderful set up you have and both agreed you are a fantastic example of how a nursery should run''!
