Our nursery unit is registered for 20 children aged between 2 and 3 years. We work on a ratio of 1 adult to every 4 children. All our nursery practitioners are fully qualified and trained in the development of children under 3 years and have been DBS cleared.

 

The nursery is relaxed and provides opportunities for free play and stimulating activities. There is also easy access to the outdoor play area. The nursery unit has a flexible routine to adapting to children’s individual needs and abilities.

 

We understand the complex relationship between child development and how children learn and plan to provide appropriate, realistic experiences that build on children’s interests. Practitioners extend and develop children’s language and communication in their play through sensitive observations and appropriate intervention. We aim to provide flexible resources that can be used in many different ways to facilitate children’s play and exploration.

 

Nursery children are allocated a key person who will be responsible for the care and development of your child during their stay with the nursery unit. Your child’s key person will be responsible for completing their learning journey with photo’s and observations, which are used to plan for your child’s individual needs. Parents area asked (if their child is not potty trained) to provide nappies, wipes and any lotions that your child may use. There are information boards in the nursery unit that provides details of the activities that your child has had the opportunity to take part in. there is also a daily sheet that provides you details of your child’s eating and sleeping routines.

 

 

 

Our Pre-school unit caters for 20 children aged between 3 years and starting school. We work on a ratio of 1 adult to every 8 children. All our nursery practitioners are fully qualified and trained in the Early Years Foundation Stage and have been CRB cleared.

 

Children participate in a range of activities, which take due account of their interests and achievements and their developing physical, intellectual, emotional and social abilities.

The children learn through play. Play is spontaneous, self- initiated activity that occurs simply for the pleasure of it, and because it has real value for the child, but is important for you to understand that play is also a process through which significant learning occurs.

The major goal of our quality educare programme is to support the growth and development of the children. When you give children the opportunity to play in a secure and caring environment you will be contributing to their overall development. Learning is a natural process for children if the environment allows it to take place. Our aim is to enable children to plan and undertake more challenging activities with a wide range of material. We also encourage children to develop a greater understanding of cause and effect by introducing a variety of equipment, media and technologies.


Pre-school children are all allocated a key person who will be responsible for the care and development of your child during their stay within the Pre-school unit. Your child’s key person will be responsible for completing their learning journeys with photos and observations, which are used to plan for your child’s individual needs. Parents and practitioners have a lot to learn from each other, so parents are regularly asked to review their child’s progress and contribute to their learning through discussion evenings and open days.
