About Childcare4U Marlow

At Childcare4U we work in partnership with parents to achieve the best possible outcomes for all the children in our care.

Our high-quality service ensures children develop socially, intellectually, culturally, physically and emotionally in a homely, caring and secure environment.

We have a cosy Baby Room, for children under two years with a dedicated sleep room so that babies can have peace and quiet whilst they sleep or rest. The babies have direct access to a small outdoor area covered in AstroTurf which is soft to crawl and toddle on, and means they can access the outdoors throughout the year.

Our Toddler Room which is for children aged two to three years, has dedicated areas to meet all of our children’s needs, in an environment where they can feel safe and secure, and have fun.

This includes space for active play, quieter areas for children to concentrate or enjoy quiet time, and for children to sleep.

Our Pre-School Room for children between the ages of 3 and 5 years is based in two rooms, one of which is used for creative play including painting, sand and water. The other room is used for a further range of activities such as role play, large and small construction, books and stories, puzzles and investigation.

Our environment and development programmes are tailored for each age range, providing a range of creative activities including, languages, early computer skills and emergent reading and writing to help the children develop, and prepare them for their next steps in education. Our programme meets the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum and the Buckinghamshire Local Authority funding requirements.

We know that fabulous staff make a great Nursery and we pride ourselves on having a highly qualified, trained and skilled team. Staff are encouraged and supported in developing their skills by studying for higher level Childcare qualifications. All staff undertake mandatory training in Safeguarding, Paediatric First Aid, Health, Fire and Food Safety.

Taking care of our staff and their wellbeing is of prime importance to us. We are proud to have been honoured with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, being ranked 14th in the whole of the UK. The Employees’ Choice Awards recognises the Best Places to Work in 2020, and is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

No one knows your child better than you, so our partnership with parents is integral to our way of working. We hold termly parents’ meetings ensuring you have the time to discuss your child’s individual needs and progress with their appointed key person. However, our ‘open-door’ policy means that parents are welcome to come and speak to us at any time.  We promote home learning, and encourage parents to participate and contribute to their child’s development, sharing information on a daily basis.
