"Pemberton Childcare - Nurturing Every Nature"

It’s not always easy choosing a nursery. Entrusting your child to someone else’s care is a big decision. So we’re keen to give you the clearest picture of what everyone here at Clerkenwell Mount Nursery is all about. We want you to have all the information you need to make the right decision for your child and for you.

Clerkenwell Mount Nursery is located in a charming, Grade II listed building formed by converting two adjoining town houses in the heart of Clerkenwell. The building was fully renovated prior to opening, providing four floors for the care of 52 children.

There is a small Garden at the rear of the property fitted with decking and astro turf that projects from our “Garden Room”, a large airy room that enables us to extend outdoor play activities inside the building  in a fun and active way.

Making sure children are nurtured and parents are happy. That’s what it all boils down to for us. So how  do we make it happen? By providing the stimulating and caring personal attention you want for your child.

"The nursery offers a caring and stimulating environment. Children progress well, are eager to learn and share that learning with others" Ofsted Report 2016.

We work full days, rather than shifts, so you are greeted at drop off and get feedback at pick up from the same carer. We also believe that having the same face settling them down for a nap and then waking them up later is fundamental to children’s sense of security and emotional wellbeing.

We pride ourselves on having more and higher qualified staff than the nursery sector average. Our key person system ensures every child is supported by a key person at all times.  This is hugely successful in helping children to settle, thrive and get the most from their nursery experience.

"Staff in the baby room are particularly knowledgeable about how very young children learn. They are very successful in supporting the personal development and learning of the youngest children" Ofsted Report 2016.

To keep you fully informed, we securely store daily updates and development information which you can easily and safely access by downloading the Parent Zone app. Just as importantly, we encourage face-to-face interaction between you and your child’s key person, plus other members of our team. Daily chats, however brief, can make a big difference to everyone’s wellbeing.

Our child-led approach to learning is based on our belief that every child is unique. We plan and research the most helpful and rewarding activities using only the highest quality resources. We go beyond standard practise in enabling children to learn, grow and develop at their own speed, nurturing both their educational and emotional wellbeing.

We believe it’s our job to make every child feel welcome, safe, cared for, paid attention to, understood, able to express their unique personalities and celebrated for who they are. We make sure your child is free to explore, discover, learn and grow.

We help them have fun and make friends.  We’re always there to wipe away a tear if they get the wobbles.

"All nursery staff are enthusiastic and motivated. They make regular and accurate assessments of children's progress, helping them tailor their teaching to the needs of each individual child" Ofsted Report 2016.

We aim to be the next best place to home. It’s also our job to understand and accept your approach to parenting, so that it’s reflected in the way we interact with your child.

We want to work in partnership with you, nurturing your child’s wellbeing, learning and development in line with your thinking and feelings. We do everything we can to provide the flexibility that makes your life that little bit easier.

We believe that movement, nature, the outdoors and physical activity are hugely valuable to children’s wellbeing. From Forest School activities led by our trained practitioners to indoor music and yoga workshops, we encourage every child to get involved, get active and have fun.

"Children confidently explore different resources and play areas. They are eager to share their activities and learning. All children make very good progress from their starting points.

They have fun, enjoy mixing with others and are prepared well for moving on to school" Ofsted Report 2016.

Whether indoors or outside, our focus is on interacting with nature with play and activities that use wooden toys and natural materials.

We also provide unique opportunities for children such as learning languages like Mandarin or Spanish, football or multi skills and educational visits from exotic animals and their handlers.

If you’ve got any questions, want more information or just want to arrange a casual visit to have a chat and get more of a feel for what we’re all about, please get in touch.
