Our team

We are really proud of our dedicated staff team working at Kingsmead Day Nursery and Preschool. Our staff are the heart of the Nursery; they understand that each child is unique and deserves every opportunity to excel in life. Our staff foster strong relationships with parents to understand the needs of their children. This ensures that we act in the best interest of each individual child so that they meet their development and learning goals. All our staff undertake continuous training in all areas of early years including official qualifications Level 2 – 6, behaviour management, caring for babies and many more. Many of our staff members have qualifications in early childhood studies, emphasizing their expertise and knowledge in the early years sector. In addition to this, 100% of our staff are Paediatric First Aid trained and hold level 2 or higher safeguarding training. Our brilliant team of highly-qualified carers are engrossed, motivated and rewarded by the progression of each child, and form lasting bonds with the children in their care.

Parent Communication

The happiness of our parents and children are important to our team. We are committed to communicating with parents and providing children’s learning. Kingsmead offers regular events for parents. Additionally, we offer settling-in sessions for new parents and children to meet their Key Person and spend time in the child’s room to help them familiarize and feel comfortable with the nursery environment.

Outdoor Space

We have a very large outdoor area providing so many opportunities for children to learn, play and grow. We have worked hard on our purpose-built garden at Kingsmead Day Nursery and are proud of what it offers our children. We’re lucky enough to have a large outdoor play area whilst still being in the centre of Winchester for easy access for parents. Our garden area consists of a Rubber Race Track, Climbing Mound and Tunnel, Children’s Vegetable Garden, Baby Zone, Reading Nook, Cookery Garden, Mud Kitchen, Wooden Playhouse, Pirate Sand Pit, Music Wall, Canopy For Shaded Play, Construction Zone, Children’s Buggy Park, Mark-Making Areas (e.g Painting), Theatre Zone and an outdoor Classroom.

Communication and Our Community

We collaborate with parents, the community, agencies and organisations to create a secure foundation of wellbeing. We enhance and support children’s ideas and experiences, developing their personal and social skills and giving them cultural capital. This provides the essential knowledge that children need to become educated citizens. Our children are encouraged to think critically, be innovative and stay curious. Here, we create a home-from-home feel with some extra awe and wonder mixed in.

Special Educational Needs

Our nursery has a degree level trained practitioner in Special Educational Needs (SENCo) on our team, should any of our children require any special needs assistance.
