About us


For over 18 years, I've dedicated myself to running a family daycare, with a loving mother an daughter team, driven by a profound passion for nurturing young minds and hearts. 

My name is Mrs Nasreen Hudda, and what began as a simple aspiration in 2006, has blossomed into a cherished institution within our community.

At the heart of our daycare is a commitment to treating each child as a cherished member of our extended family. With love, empathy, and a focus on holistic development, we create a warm and inviting environment where children feel valued, supported, and celebrated for who they are. From first steps to first words, we witness and nurture every milestone, fostering not just academic growth but also social, emotional, and physical development.

Our philosophy revolves around the belief that families are integral partners in a child's journey. Through open communication, trust, and collaboration, we work hand in hand with parents to provide the best possible care and education for their children. Continuous learning and professional development are central to our approach, ensuring that we stay abreast of the latest research and best practices in early childhood education.

Beyond academics, we prioritize instilling values of empathy, compassion, and resilience in our young learners. Through thoughtful discussions, storytelling, and hands-on activities, we empower them to become conscientious citizens of the world, equipped with the skills and mindset to navigate life's challenges with grace and courage.

Running a family daycare comes with its share of challenges, but the joy of seeing children thrive outweighs any obstacles. Each day is filled with moments of laughter, learning, and connection, reaffirming the profound impact of our work. As I reflect on the past 18 years, I am grateful for the opportunity to play a role in shaping the lives of the next generation. Looking ahead, I am committed to continuing this journey of love and learning, one day at a time.

Our Philosophy

At Playhouse, our philosophy centers on creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where every child is valued, respected, and supported in their unique journey of growth and development. Grounded in principles of empathy, compassion, and holistic education, our philosophy emphasizes the importance of fostering a strong partnership between educators, parents, and the community. We believe in providing children with a safe and stimulating space where they can explore, learn, and thrive at their own pace, guided by a play-based curriculum that encourages creativity, curiosity, and self-discovery. Our commitment to lifelong learning and continuous improvement ensures that we stay abreast of the latest research and best practices in early childhood education, allowing us to adapt and evolve our approach to meet the evolving needs of our diverse student body. At the heart of our philosophy is a deep respect for each child's individuality and a firm belief in their innate potential to make meaningful contributions to the world.

Patient and Family-Centered Care 

Patient and family-centered care is the cornerstone of our approach at Playhouse. We believe that every child is unique and deserving of individualized attention and support, and we extend this philosophy to encompass their families as well. By involving parents and caregivers as partners in their child's care and education, we ensure that their voices are heard and their perspectives valued every step of the way. Our aim is to create a collaborative and inclusive environment where families feel empowered to actively participate in decision-making and are supported in their roles as primary caregivers. 

Through open communication, mutual respect, and a commitment to meeting the diverse needs of our families, we strive to create a welcoming and supportive community where everyone feels valued and respected.

Quality and Safety

Quality and safety are paramount at Playhouse, guiding every aspect of our operations to ensure the well-being and security of every child entrusted to our care. We uphold rigorous standards of excellence in all our practices, from the cleanliness and maintenance of our facilities to the qualifications and training of our staff. 

Our commitment to quality extends to the design and implementation of our curriculum, which is carefully crafted to promote optimal development and learning outcomes for each child. We also prioritize safety at every turn, implementing robust protocols for supervision, emergency preparedness, and health management to mitigate risks and ensure a secure environment for all. Through regular assessments, continuous monitoring, and feedback from families and staff, we strive for ongoing improvement and excellence in everything we do, because the safety and well-being of our children are non-negotiable priorities.

Our Excellence

Excellence is not just a goal; it's the standard by which we measure every aspect of our nursery. From the quality of care we provide to the safety of our environment, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of excellence in all that we do. Our commitment to excellence is evident in our dedicated staff, who undergo rigorous training and professional development to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide top-tier care for every child. It's reflected in our innovative curriculum, designed to stimulate curiosity, promote learning, and foster holistic development in each child. 

We continually strive for excellence by regularly evaluating and improving our practices, soliciting feedback from families and staff, and staying abreast of the latest research and best practices in early childhood education. At our nursery, excellence isn't just a goal; it's our promise to the families we serve—to provide the highest quality of care and education for every child, every day.

What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is good

"Staff create a warm, welcoming and stimulating learning environment to help children to feel safe and emotionally secure. Children keenly greet staff as they arrive, find their favourite toys, and settle very quickly. Children are eager to start their busy day, ready to learn. They are confident in social situations. For example, children say to visitors, 'What's your name?' and 'Nice to meet you.'

Children benefit from meaningful learning, overall. Staff plan experiences based on what children know and can do to help to meet their individual needs. During holiday periods, children of mixed ages play, learn and develop their social skills together. For example, older children look at books with younger children and help them to join puzzle pieces together. Children thoroughly enjoy each other's company and behave well.

Staff help to develop children's positive sense of self within the local community and what makes them unique. For example, staff plan weekly trips to the library and local parks. They celebrate a range of festivals to help to develop children's understanding of what makes them unique and appreciation of diversity. Staff find out key words in the languages children speak at home to help children to feel secure in their cultural identity."
