Who are we?
Oak Tree Pre-School Nursery is based in St. Mary’s Church hall, in Wimbledon Village. We are registered to look after and care for children from the ages of 18 months to 5 years. We provide an exceptionally high-quality full day care, where parents can feel totally reassured leaving their children in a safe, friendly but most importantly happy environment.
Located on a quiet residential road, the nursery benefits from a large secure enclosed garden and we are very lucky to have a large enclosed field. We have a smaller outdoor space completely secure for our younger babies and toddlers too.
At Oak Tree all staff have a genuine love and passion for children most of whom have children, or grandchildren, of their own and all have worked in the childcare sector for many years before joining Oak Tree. All members of staff are first aid trained.
It is imperative to us that children are kept safe and their safety is at the heart of everything we do. For this reason we do not use agency staff to look after our babies and children we have a strong core team of nursery practitioners who look after the children on a daily basis and should one member of staff be on holiday or off sick we cover internally, with all adults children know and love.
We also pride ourselves on not having a high turn over of staff, most members of staff have been working at the nursery for the past five years or more and three have worked at Oak Tree since we first opened 18 years ago. Our nursery manager has been working with us for the last 12 years.
The nursery owner, herself a mother of two young children, has worked in the childcare sector for over 25 years and has an exceptional knowledge and passion for working with children. She has a very simple philosophy – all staff have to know our children on a personal and developmental level.
Children at Oak Tree are not just numbers, our nursery is about the quality of childcare, not the quantity of children.
