Hi, my name is Shelley, I’m the Manager at Toddle In Group in Harrow. I’ve
worked here for 22 years having started as a student, and working my way
up gaining both qualifications and invaluable experience. I have 4 children
and any day now, I will be welcoming my 8th grandchild in to the world!
We are registered as a 58 place Group. Children will be given a keyperson
who will pay particular attention to your needs as a family, trying to ensure
that life at nursery resembles life at home. We respect parents as the first
educators of their young children. The aim of the Group is to support your
essential work not to supplant it.
We balance educational experiences and fun, with careful planning and
monitoring. Your child’s key-person will extend and develop your child’s
learning and play and you will have a wonderful learning journey folder to
take with you when your child leaves for school. We pride ourselves on our
community atmosphere, and aim to include our families as much as we
Our staff are trained to provide the highest quality care for your child. We
offer trained and experienced carer’s with a variety of additional and
specialist training. Through a carefully planned induction programme, we
the proprietors are able to ensure that all staff are aware of, and work
towards the high standards and ethos of the Group. We have very high
staff retention, with our Manager having been with us for 20 years now! We
keep our team fresh and up to date with training, and research, and support
those trying to get into the field as students.
The Group is open 51 weeks a year and offers flexible attendance
schedules. The day runs between 7.30am and 6pm, five days a week.
We also offer term time placements for families looking for childcare in line with
the local schools.Throughout the day the children are offered a variety
of learning and play experiences, both planned and spontaneous.
Within a safe and stimulating environment children are encouraged to
choose their activities during free play, thus developing their
independence and self-esteem.
We love what we do, and we’re sure it shows! We look forward to working
in partnership with you in the future!
