The Harlequin Day Nursery Policies

Mission / Vision Statement:

All nursery policies, procedures and practices are based on the research and practice of the EYFS.

To find out more visit

We strive to provide an environment to meet your child’s individual needs. The nursery philosophy is based on learning through practical hands on experience.

When planning all activities and routines we identify and maximise the learning potential; from climbing the stairs to the Explorer Room, to independently selecting a new book for Pre-School children to take home and share with parents.

Children’s time at nursery is documented and becomes a record of their learning journey; this is available at all time for parents to view and share with key workers.
