In 2010 we celebrated our 24th year at the nursery. The nursery was started in 1986 by Yvonne Turrell MA. This was a new concept for child care in Uxbridge and it was the first private day care facility which provided full day care for two to fives in the Uxbridge area. Yvonne‚Äôs three children have all attended it and her daughter, Kelly is now the deputy manager and her son Samuel is an early years assistant.

  Yvonne was the first person in the London Borough of Hillingdon to open a baby nursery in 1991 and during the period of 1986 through to 2005 organized five nurseries in the London Borough of Hillingdon with over a hundred child care places catering for babies from three months to children of five years.

Yvonne is the artist in residence with a BA(Hons) in fine art, a degree in fashion and design from Harrow School of Art  and a masters degree in fine art and media from the University of Westminster. Yvonne helped implement the original concept of the nursery nurse NVQ qualification on the consortium in Reading and was one of the first in the country to be a qualified NVQ Assessor.

Yvonne truely believes that 'each child is an individual and should be encouraged to be an independent thinker and that we  should encourage building their confidence and self esteem and above all encouraging the development of free creative thought.' 

 In 2010 we celebrated our 24th year by enjoying a teddy bear's picnic. We invited our bears to the special tea party and enjoyed teddy bear cake, fresh tropical fruit salad and loads of tea party food. The children made their bears honey cakes which I have since heard the bears really enjoyed.
