We are a non-profit making, charitable organisation supported by a committee of local parents. We are registered with OFSTED and affiliated with Sure Start.
Originally set up as a ‘Mother and Toddler’ group in 1969, the pre school is located within the rural village of Thulstone. Daisy Chains moved into its current building in 2011 after receiving funding from the Local Authority.
We pride ourselves on being actively involved in our local community. Daisy Chains organises an annual fund raising event at the local gala to support the local community group. We also support the local ‘Mother and Toddler’ group that runs on Thursday mornings in the community room above the Nursery. We feel that these events provide the children with a sense of community and their place within it.
Our team is made up of highly motivated, experienced and qualified staff who are committed to providing high quality care and education though fun- filled and enjoyable activities in a safe and secure environment.
Although based at Thurlstone Primary School, we retain our independence and also feed other schools in the area.
We have robust policies and procedures in place that safeguard all our children and meet the Safeguarding and Welfare requirements as set out in the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.
How We Help Your Child
Children are encouraged to become independent, further their social skills and make friendships according to their age and development whilst having lots of fun.
We actively promote healthy lifestyles including nutrition and exercise as part of our daily routine.
