Our City and Totton Nurseries offer purpose-built, spacious buildings with large feature windows. The beautiful playrooms are flooded with natural light and air conditioned for maximum comfort.
West End Nursery consists of three detached buildings; each carefully adapted to suit the developmental stages of the children within them. The nursery buildings are set within a half-acre site with sensory gardens, playground equipment, dens and hidey holes, and back onto 40 acres of Hatch Grange Nature Reserve.
Each of the nurseries has imaginatively designed outdoor spaces which enable all our children to feel inspired as they become adventurous explorers, budding athletes or green-fingered gardeners to name but a few. There are also peaceful areas which provide space for children to enjoy some quiet time with their friends. Every day is an ‘outdoor day’ at Play Away and so each garden features large, colourful sails which provide areas of all-weather protection throughout the year.
The safety and security of your child is our number one priority at Play Away: beginning at the front with our reliable security systems and continuing through to the robust safety procedures which underpin all that we do.
Each of our nurseries is equipped with biometric entry systems, which require individual fingerprint identification to enter the buildings. The system will only allow entry to registered parents and staff, enabling you to have complete trust that your little one is in the very safest of places.
All nurseries are inspected by Ofsted, the government body who work to ensure that children are being provided with a good start to their education. Nurseries are judged across a range of different areas which include leadership and management; safety of children; and the quality of the learning opportunities offered.
