At Deerfields Nursery, our educational daycare begins with a deep respect for your child’s eagerness to learn and capacity to develop meaningful relationships. We believe that secure relationships with responsive and respectful adults can provide the basis for a lifelong love of learning. Our dedicated and highly trained teachers focus on creating these nurturing relationships that allow children to feel valued and empowered.
Whatever their age, our priority is always to make sure that every child enjoys a happy and fun-filled day in our secure and welcoming environment because we never forget that nursery is a home from home for children while they are away from their parents.

every stage in a stimulating environment. We also have a wide selection of toys
available in the outside play area, where children can run, jump, climb and
have fun. Our classes are divided by age and children are placed in the class
where we feel they will be best suited. We conduct regular assessments and
reviews to determine when they are ready to move to the next learning stage. We

Facilities at the

indoor play area serves for the days that the weather does not avail kids to
play outside such as, heat, rain, sand storm etc. Our outdoor play area with
challenging climbing structures, a water play area, grass area, sand pits and
discovery garden will give the best to our kids in terms of exploring whilst
The nursery uses
‘outdoor classrooms’ in the cooler weather. Activities available include
Mathazone (Mathematics for young learners), gardening, cooking, painting, and
offers extracurricular activities such as French/Arabic, Mathazone (Mathematics
for young learners) music, ballet, gymnastics, karate, yoga, art, gardening,
cooking, role-play/ drama. Close personal attention to each child is essential
to providing a quality experience for all children; therefore, adequate staff
will be in charge to ensure each child has the proper supervision within our
care. We also have our own dedicated dance and music & dance studio where
our children enjoy ballet and tap-dancing lessons, along with physical activity
on a weekly basis.
Our baby room provides
the calm and secure environment babies need. Babies have a key career and
follow their own feeding and sleeping routines in a cozy cot room with allocated
cots. The ratio in babies’ room is 1 to 2. We ask you to provide sterilized
bottles and formula so that your baby’s career can prepare his/her bottles as
required. We also ask you to bring disposable nappies, as you know best which
brand suits your baby’s delicate skin. We have a wide selection of toys and
books which have been specially chosen to promote your baby’s development, as
well as being fun.
Staff help babies
develop new skills by encouraging them in their first attempts at crawling,
walking and of course, talking. When you feel your baby is ready for nursery
food, staff will offer suitably prepared meals in accordance with your wishes,
in line with our policy of working in partnership with parents at all times.
Babies are taken to the
playground whenever weather permits, and staff also take older babies to the
outside play area where they can ‘watch and learn’ from the older children.
Older siblings are encouraged to visit the baby room throughout the day, and we
find this particularly helpful during the ‘settling in’ period. Parents are
encouraged to bring their baby for short visits before starting nursery; since
both babies and parents have varying needs when starting nursery for the first
time, the manager will advise on these as the visits progress.
When your baby is around
20 months old he/she will move up to the toddlers play room. Here toddlers have
access to a range of toys designed to stimulate their imagination and offer
plenty of scope to practice the new skills they are developing. They always
have open access to construction toys and other equipment which helps develop
fine motor skills, together with a plentiful supply of books, jigsaws and craft
materials. Children also take their naps in the toddlers’ room, usually after
lunch. Toddlers like to move around a lot, so garden play becomes very
important, and children are taken outside as much as possible, where they can
ride bikes, climb and jump
From the age of 3
children we follow the Foundation Phase, the Early Years Program which is
currently used in British schools. It is widely accepted as the best method of
learning for children aged between 3 and 7. Staff plan and set out activities
which provide quality play opportunities for learning in 7 areas – Mathematical,
Physical Development, Knowledge & Understanding of the World, Personal,
Social & Well-being, Language & Literacy, Multi-Cultural Understanding
and Creative Development. These areas are considered to be the essential
foundation for children’s education. Staff plan activities which give plentiful
opportunities for quality play, then children choose which activities they want
to take part in. Naturally, key workers are on hand to extend children’s games,
helping them integrate self-expression and imagination into their play. Key
workers also ensure that paints, pencils and other creative materials are
always readily accessible so that they can help children develop good writing
All children are
encouraged to behave well and show consideration for others, particularly in
the Foundation Phase. They learn to follow instructions and keep to a routine,
while still developing their independence. Our mission is to ensure that every
child is happy and well-cared for; we want them to leave us confident and ready
