Why choose The Haven ?

We are a family owned and family run business established in 2000. We are a strong and stable Management who have a commitment to maintaining quality and safety through regular Staff training and supervision.

We have qualified, skilled and experienced Staff and every Staff member is first aid and safeguard trained.

Ofsted judged us as “Good" at our most recent inspection. "Children form close attachments to staff who care for them. They play together following the nursery rules and behaviour is excellent." (November 2018)

We have spacious well equipped garden areas in which children play  all year round.

We employ a sports coach who teaches children how to keep themselves healthy using games and small equipment.

Children are served tasty home cooked and healthy food prepared on site by our qualified chef.

We listen to our parents/carers when they ask for advice and we run workshops on Five to Thrive , Sleep Management, Toilet Training, Behaviour Management, How babies learn, School Readiness and Transition.

We have  excellent working relationship with Professionals from the Child Development Centre, Children Centres, Bedford Borough Council and Reception Teachers from local Schools.

We never stop improving outcomes for children.

  • We were awarded the Shine a Light award by the Communication Trust for improving speech and language skills.
  • We achieved the Every Child A Talker award.  The Local Health Authority awarded us the  Healthy Smiles Award for the promotion of children’s dental hygiene.
  • We held the Healthy Eating Award for 10 years before the scheme was stopped but we still follow the quality guidelines.
  • Maria was awarded Pride in Bedford for her contribution to children’s education and Vivien has raised in excess of £16,000 for the Neonatal Unit in Bedford Hospital through her charity The Felicity Fund.

Children benefit most when Practitioners and Families share information.

Supporting Families in the care and education of their child is embedded in our practice.
