Enchanted Forest Nursery opened its doors in June 2006 as the first private nursery in Erskine. From small beginnings of having 5 children registered on Day 1, we have gone from strength to strength and continuously strive on a daily basis to improve the services we provide. Enchanted Forest Thornliebank opened in April 2010, Enchanted Forest Greenock opened in March 2011 and Enchanted Forest Inverkip opened in March 2012.
‘Word of Mouth’ has worked wonders for Enchanted Forest Nurseries and has placed us in the words of parents as a ‘home from home’ and 'extended family' for all children as well as their families. Our low staff turn-over is testament that Enchanted Forest Nursery is also a ‘great’ place to work.
In October 2009, we became accredited to ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS). ISO 9001 is an internationally-recognised standard for quality management, ensuring that we have proven processes in place to meet the requirements of our parents and children. On an annual basis we are externally audited to ensure our QMS accreditation can continue. Only 5% of businesses in the United Kingdom have achieved this standard and very few nurseries!
We take our social responsibility seriously and as such Enchanted Forest Nurseries operates as an Eco School. We assist many charities locally including, Cash for Kids, Comic Relief, and Children in Need. In 2012, EFN have been supporting have pledged their full support to Cash for Kids as our main charity for the year - each nursery will be working on a monthly action plan to raise funds for those children less fortunate than the ones on our care.
