Children See Magic Because They Look For It

South Hills Nurseries

Taking Care of Your Child’s Health and Wellbeing

At South Hills Nurseries, we pay close attention to your child’s needs, ensuring they have warm and supportive relationships with their key worker. Following the 5 key principles of the Every Child Matters policy ensures that every child is supported during their time at our nursery.

The Unique Child

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them. Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments. At South Hills Nurseries, we pay close attention to your child’s needs by putting their emotional and physical well-being first, supporting them to be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Our practitioners:


understand and observe each child’s development and learning, assess progress and plan for next steps

Support babies and children to develop a positive sense of their own identity and culture

identify any need for additional support



value and respect all children and families equally

Staff Wellbeing

As part of our commitment to health and wellbeing, we also work closely with our staff to create a work culture where everyone is treated with respect and kindness. Our teams support each other with open and honest communication.
