We ensure that each room have experienced, dedicated staff who work alongside a supervisor. Activities are planned around the children's interests and development is carefully monitored by the key worker using our online learning journal, Tapestry. We use this to communicate with our parents and share with them snapshots of their child's time at nursery. We carefully plan for each child's individual development using the EYFS and the Birth to 5 document. Based on this we have written our own curriculum catered to our community and our families.
Each child will be assigned a key person. Their role is to ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs, to help the child become familiar with the setting and to develop a secure relationship with the child and parents.
Before you start with us you will have the opportunity to meet your child's key worker and the rest of the staff who will be caring for your child. This will consist of 2 visits, the first being for an hour with you and your child which will give you time to ask questions regarding any special routines or requirements. The second visit will be for 2 hours whereby you will leave your child to settle in and have lunch with us. In the event that you should require any more visits, this can be arranged.
When your child is ready to move to the next room this is carefully planned between key workers and parents, we will send you pictures of their new room and staff so you can talk about this at home. The child will visit the next room throughout the month before, which enables them to explore their new environment and the staff.
All the rooms are well equipped with high quality recourses, natural furnishings which provides an inviting and calm atmosphere. The children have access to an exciting outdoor area to explore their curiosity on a larger scale!!
We are extremely proud of our nursery and would love for you to contact us regarding a place for your child.
