We follow the EYFS curriculum and adhere to the guidelines set by OFSTED, which is the British regulatory body for schools and daycare in the UK. The curriculum's intention is to ensure that every child is considered a competent learner, from birth and with the nurturing support of adults they can become resilient, capable and self-assured.
The maximum amount of children for each age group varies upon the age of your child due to the level of attention that they require. For example a child of six months will require a lot more care compared to a child of four years. The class sizes vary from 10 children to 18 with three adults per class.
The process of selecting staff here at British Orchard Nursery is very important to us; command of the British language is paramount as well as educational background. Many of our staff have Degrees in fields such as Early Years, Special Educational needs, and Early Years Physical Development.

All classes have one teacher and two teaching assistants at all times throughout the day.
