We offer Art sessions for our children to encourage creativity and spontaneous self-expression.
Arno Stern approach emphasised respects from each other’s individual needs, and removing the pressure of performing. Children learn to trust, express the richness of their world and respond to the critical judging voices within.
In the right atmosphere, painting becomes a powerful tool to support children’s growth into healthy confident adults.
” ….personal development is linked to social experience. Thus, activity in the Closlieu allows individuals to fulfil themselves among others rather than against them.’’ (Arno Stern in ‘Creative Education’).
This session is delivered by Mrs Katia Allio, an Art therapy specialist who trained in Switzerland, specifically for young children in nurseries and primary schools. She worked as a Team leader teacher and head assistant of the SENCO department. She also ran her own Art therapy centre to support families with children with special need and behaviour difficulties to improve self-esteem.

St Paul’s Church Hall, Brentford
A. Every child will be offered a flexible settling-in period depending upon their individual needs and we will discuss it with you if your child requires a longer period of settling-in. During the registration, we will also discuss your routine at home so that we can continue to follow it in our setting.
A. We have the policy that a minimum of 2 members of staff must be on-site with the children at all times. We always keep the recommended ratio between children and adults. When we take the children out to the park or local amenities, the ratio is then increased. All our staff are DBS checked and have undergone first aid training.
We complete daily risk assessment to monitor safety in the nursery. We also have a secure entry system to the nursery, controlled by the doorbell and the password that you created at the time of registering your child with us. If you ask someone else to collect your child, please tell us in advance. You will need to give them the password to authorise the collection of your child.
A. We provide well-balanced nutrition in each meal, including protein, carbohydrates, fat and fibre and omega, plus a minimum of 5 pieces of fruits or vegetables per day. We also comply with individual allergies and dietary requirements.
In addition, we promote Oral health with less sugary foods and drinking water, plus guided tooth brushing time with the children.
A: We highly recommend that children attend at least 2 part-time sessions or 1 full-time session per week. This will help your child to settle in and provide continuity in their learning and development.
