We cater for
children aged 3 months to 5 years, in fully equipped development specific rooms. We also offer sessional pre-school
at some of our settings.
- care and attention
Handing over the care of your
baby for the first time is a huge step for any parent.
But while it may be hard on you, your baby will quickly
adapt to their new surroundings and learn to know and
trust their carers. We will help you settle your baby
into our care over a period of days or weeks. We will
talk to you in great detail about all aspects of our
care and try to accommodate any special requests you
rooms are spacious and self-contained, to allow
our team to give your baby the individual care and
attention they need at this early stage.
We maintain a high ratio of practitioners to babies. We
record all feeding, sleeping, medical administration
and nappy changing daily so that you can monitor
your baby's routine closely.
- time to explore
As soon as your baby starts
to find their independent movement, we will talk to you about moving
them to our Wobbler Room. During this
time, your child will learn how to walk properly and
become more co-ordinated.
In the Wobbler Room, we use
visual, physical and audio educational resources to
stimulate periods of play and sleep time. Our Wobbler
Room is where your child will spend much of their day
experimenting, exploring and beginning to socialise.
- look who's talking
Your child will graduate to
the Toddler Rooms at some point soon after they become
steady on their feet! In the Toddler Rooms, we introduce
more advanced equipment, arts and crafts and a daily
plan of activities. Your child's vocabulary will increase
and they will soon be able to form simple sentences.
They will make lots of little friends and will enjoy
in taking part in group learning.
By the time your child is ready
to leave the Toddler Room, they will have a good level
of communication, and will be able to retain vast amounts
of information, and to formulate ideas. During this
time, we will also work with you to toilet-train your
child when you decide the time is right.
Pre-school - preparing
The Pre-School Room is where
your child will first experience a more structured school
environment. Your child will adapt and become used to
sitting on a chair at a table and concentrating for
longer periods of time.
All children develop at
different rates and Pre-School allows us to asses how
each child is fairing with the different tasks set.
By spending more individual time at this stage, your
child will grasp the fundamentals of reading, writing
and mathematics. Arts and crafts and social
behaviour are also key areas of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).
