Head Starts is an independent day nursery located in Bournemouth, providing quality and excellence in childcare.

At the heart of our mission statement is to provide the highest quality of care in a safe and secure environment, and for children to leave our setting ready and prepared for school life and future learning.

Our high quality care enables children to positively grow with healthy eating and exercise, and knowledge and skills gained from their time with us.

Our home from home setting provides a stimulating environment that encourages children to socialise and learn alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS).

The EYFS is a comprehensive statutory framework that sets the standards for the care and learning and development of children from birth to five years. We use this framework in our activity planning, so parents can be confident their child will receive a quality experience that focuses on their readiness for future learning and healthy development. With this framework and the knowledge and skills of our professional and friendly staff, you can be sure your child receives the Head Start they deserve.
