Nursery Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve tried to answer all our  childcare UK FAQs here, hope it helps!

Are you Ofsted regulated?

Yes, our Ofsted registered number is EY424407. We are registered for a maximum 24 children at any one time (max 18 children under 2 years). We can take children from 3 months old up to 8 years old. Ofsted have rated our Nursery a Good overall. Please find their report here.

What security measures do you have in place?

  • All Third Door visitors are required to sign in at the reception, provide their contact details and a photograph is taken for security.
  • Our Nursery has a secure entry system where only staff know the entry code. This is changed on a regular basis.
  • All our staff are CRB checked. All staff are employed by Third Door which means that we have consistent staff members who can build strong relationships with the children and members.

Can I come and see my child in the Nursery or take them out during the day?

Yes, of course although we ask you to respect core hours where staff can carry our their planned activities with the children uninterrupted.

What makes Third Door different from other nurseries?

  • Flexibility – you do not have to commit to the same days every week. You are allocated hours within the monthly membership package which you are free to use on the days that suit you.
  • Children mix with older and younger children, learning from older children and caring for younger children. Please refer to our blog on a mixed environment.
  • Parents can work and have meetings on site as well as spend time with their child.
  • Mothers can continue to breastfeed their babies and also pop down to see their child whenever they wish.
  • Opportunities to build a stronger relationship with other parents through working in the same environment.

What else do I need to provide?

Please also provide nappies, wipes, sunscreen and a change of clothing for your child. We also ask you to label all your children’s belongings to ensure they find their way back to you and your child if ever separated!

How far in advance do I need to book my child into the nursery?

Please give us at least 48 hours’ notice whenever possible for both booking or cancellation.

Do you accept childcare vouchers?
