I established Freshfields in 1990, as a small day nursery caring for pre-school children, and I am proud that we were the first full day provision in Warwickshire. I aimed then, as now, to provide the highest quality of care and pre school education, in a professional yet relaxed home from home environment. I am delighted that we are still going strong and that this year, 2016, we are celebrating our 26th anniversary.
Over the years Freshfields has seen many changes and is now established at Clifford Forge House, which opened in 1998. The nursery is based in a beautiful three storey Georgian house, together with an adjacent Coach House in an idyllic, safe, unique and rural location near to Clifford Chambers.
My own four children came to Freshfields which enabled me to view the nursery, its facilities and the care it provides, from the perspective of a parent, who's views are very important to us.
As Principal, I am present most days along with the two Nursery Managers and duty manager of the birth to 2 year olds and the 2 to 5 year olds, who are delighted to provide prospective parents with an informal, yet informative, viewing of all parts of the Nursery. Please call the office to make an appointment if you are considering sending your child to Freshfields Nursery or, alternatively, contact us to receive our current prospectus.
The Nursery has a dedicated team of loving, committed, enthusiastic staff who ensure that each child receives the individual care and attention they need. We respect the uniqueness of each child and provide activities which stimulate and allow children to discover and investigate according to individual preferences. I and my team of staff take the Safeguarding of all the children extremely seriously. We ensure that our recruitment procedures are robust and that all staff receive regular Child Protection training.
Our team of staff play an important part in nurturing, caring for and educating each child during their formative years, encouraging independence, confidence and self-belief.
To enrich the children's development, extracurricular activities are held on a daily basis and are included in the daily fees, such as Tots Tune Time, football, Tennis, Forest School and Ballet. We also offer the opportunity of taking French lessons, as well as hosting weekly cooking and gardening sessions with our children.
I do hope you find our exciting website interesting and informative; please do contact us for further information if your questions are not answered here.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children to Freshfields.
