Children are taught how to keep themselves safe. They learn why they must wash their hands, cough in their elbow, brush their teeth, eat healthy food, hold the stair bannister, avoid walking in front of the swing, follow instructions, do fire drills and safeguard themselves through the NSPCC PANTS and Road Safety campaigns.
Everyone gets to know one another’s key children so that every child is comfortable and familiar with every adult. This is one of the reasons children find it easy to transition to the next room.
Because we practice British Values each child is aware of their uniqueness and how important they are to one another.
Families are made to feel welcome. Sharing their unique knowledge of their child is paramount to developing a sense of belonging.
Our intention is to empower children, Practitioners, Managers and Parents and Carers with skills and knowledge needed, to create the best outcomes possible for each child who attends The Haven 2000.
We deliver a varied curriculum which gives children the skills and knowledge they will need by the time they make the transition to school. We keep them safe and teach them how to safeguard themselves.
We use Continual Professional Development to enhance and improve Practitioner and Management performance.
We consult with Parents and Carers and share information which helps them support their child’s educational and developmental journey at each stage. Outcomes are measured in terms of achievement, well being and Parent/Carer satisfaction.
So what do Families say about us ?

“We just wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for all the teaching, guidance and fun that you have shared with *****. We could not have been happier with the care and support he has been shown by you. “
Parents of C
" 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! "
