2018

Ofsted Rated Outstanding for the second time

Nominated for Nursery Manager of the Year at Busy Bees award Ceremony.

We deliberately choose not to offer a crèche style facility and ask all children attend a minimum of 4 sessions (20 hours per week) as we believe any less time would invalid our core values. By taking the time to get to know each child and their families we can truly make a difference in a child’s early years education.

We passionately believe that in less than 20 hours per week we cannot support parents as their children’s first and most important educators, fully involve parents in nursery life and their children’s education or inspire parents in their own continuing education and personal development with regard to striving for the best possible outcomes for their children.

At Toybox we firmly believe that children benefit most from Early Years Education and care when parents/carers and daycare settings work together as a cooperative partnership.

Mission Statement

Toybox Great Denham serves to provide excellent quality care for all its children. We understand that the learning environment plays a key role in extending children’s knowledge and development. We take into consideration that all children develop and learn in different ways.
We understand the importance of treating children as individuals and pride ourselves on listening to them.

We promise, when caring for your children, to provide a safe, loving, stimulating and homely environment and be sensitive to their needs. Children begin to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. At Toybox we recognise this and value and treat each child has unique and listen to their individual thoughts and feelings.

We support all of our children through the Early Years Foundation Stage which helps us to realise each child’s capacity for being a competent learner from birth. We recognise that each child can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. 
We will work with parents to provide each and every child a learning environment that will give them the best possible start and encourage children to build positive relationships with others.
