and Stationhouse Nurseries are really proud to have been able to remain open to
support our key worker parents during this unprecedented time. Running this service
from Stationhouse Nursery with a fantastically dedicated team enabled us to
understand first hand how to provide a calm, but fun
space for our children. Covid cases are on the
increase in the South West and it is inevitable that we will be impacted by
this, but we are doing everything we can to limit the spread.

And …… I am really excited to
announce that before Christmas, Spandex will be installing their ‘ImagePerfect™ SafeTouch’ laminate
to all surfaces at Lakehouse. This film incorporates the highly effective

level of protection against viruses including Coronavirus.
We really believe that when choosing a nursery for your
precious little one, it is best to visit in person to view the environment, and
observe staff and children’s interactions through your own eyes. However due to
Coronavirus, we need to reduce the number of adults entering the nursery to
ensure the safety of our team and the children in our care and therefore we are
unable to book show arounds at this time. To help give you an idea of our
approach and our environment, we have recorded a virtual tour of nursery, we
would encourage you to watch this video and then give us a call to talk things
We also post regularly on our nursery Instagram pages @stationhousenursery4 and @lakehousenursery18 which
will also give you a flavour of us.
Queuing in the lovely sunshine at drop off and pick up is
one thing, but when it’s cold and wet – ouch. I promise that our processes are
constantly reviewed and we are doing everything we can to make them as smooth,
pragmatic and efficient as possible.
