Advice & Support
As a Team we support children and families in things that matter to them. Key persons talk with families daily and advise on developmental changes which affect family life such as the birth of a new baby, sleep, toileting or behavioural issues. Our Manager is a former Teacher, an Early Years Professional and an experienced SENDco. Our Business and Finance Manager is a source of support in all matters to do with funding and finance. Our Deputy is knowledgeable and experienced in delivering best practice to children who have English as an additional language. Sometimes expert knowledge would benefit a child and the family better and we advise referral or signposting to other agencies.

" The Haven 2000 is a wonderful family-owned and run nursery and pre-school. Both of our children started at 11 months old and have stayed until school age. We are extremely happy with the quality of the care and education provided. Our youngest daughter will soon start school and has been incredibly well prepared, as was our eldest. She can count and recognise numbers, write her name, as well as sound out and recognise most letters. In addition to the educational side of things, she has been well supported in developing her self-care skills, which will stand her in good stead for life at school. The staff do an amazing job with the children and have been incredibly supportive over the years with great advice on weaning, behaviour and potty training. We could not have asked for more and are truly sad that our time with The Haven will be coming to an end when our youngest starts school in September! "
