What We Offer
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important for every child and is his/her own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
We consider the individual needs, interests and stage of development of each child in our care and use observations, written and photographic, to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience for each child. We aim to work in partnership with parents to promote the learning and development of all children in our care and ensure they are ready for school.
Each group of children is assigned a key person, who helps to ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs, helps the child become familiar with the setting and builds a relationship with the parents.
We believe that careful planning is required to ensure play and learning is of a high quality, reflecting each child’s individuality. Our planning starts with the key person observing children in order to understand and consider their current interests, next steps in their learning and development. Interesting and challenging but achievable indoor and outdoor activities are then planned and evaluated, with observations recorded in your child’s learning journey.
We ensure that you have regular contact about your child’s learning and development with us and you will receive a summative assessment on your child’s learning and development every three months, and a progress check along with monthly activity sheets on what your child has been learning at the nursery.
A sneak Peek into our Class Rooms
Little Angels Room (Babies aged 0 months - 18 months)
Our baby centre is situated on the ground floor and is divided into two areas, (older and younger babies), which can take up to 10 babies in each room. In our ‘Baby Area’ we have highly experienced staff whose priority is to follow the home routine of each baby as closely as possible (Staff Ratio 1:3). We have a spacious play area with a quiet and secure sleeping area. We provide a variety of stimulating activities in a caring and friendly environment in order to promote your baby’s all round development. We are a breast feeding friendly nursery and will support mothers returning to work who still wish to breast feed. Our staff are trained in the storage and use of breast milk and we welcome you visiting to feed during the day where possible. All planning will be displayed on the room wall for you to view and see what activities and development your child will be participating on daily basis.
After the Baby Area, we will look to move your child to the ‘Toddler Area’.
All the activities in this area are aimed towards the baby’s first experiences. The environment is stimulating and our staff encourage babies to develop at their own pace, to ensure they meet their individual needs with careful planning and observation. The babies keep to their own routines to ensure they feel happy, secure and settled during their time with us in the nursery. Daily Records of feeding, nappy change and sleep time are maintained and sent home on a daily basis. We have provisions for additional support as and when required.
Parents are required to supply nappies, additional clothes and milk to ensure continuity between home and nursery for all babies.
Cute Caterpillars (Pre Nursery 18 months to 2.5 years)
Our Pre-Nursery room on the Ground floor has a designated area for role play, physical play and creative play housed in a spacious activity room and work tables for pre writing skill development, block play area and a reading corner in the class room. We offer a range of equipment and carefully planned activities to stimulate and encourage their development.
Children participate in child initiated activities and play opportunities to enhance and encourage their personal, social and emotional development. They learn to develop relationships and how to socially interact with other children. Their gross motor & fine motor developments are closely monitored and recorded. These are shared with parents on a regular basis.
Bouncy Butterflies Room (Ages 2.6 years - 3.5 years)
These two rooms accommodate up to 15 children each from the ages of 2.6 to 3.5 years, and cater to children of pre-school age. The focus of these rooms is based around independent learning and having routines in place for the children to take part in each day. The children in these rooms work around topic and story based activities in all areas of EYFS.
They are provided with a more structured day with a much greater choice of learning opportunities including arts and crafts, construction activities, table top games and much more! We will also introduce early numeracy and literacy skills and activities designed to develop your child’s communication skills. They will enjoy a wide range of planned activities, including opportunities for music and movement, messy and creative play. Gardening, petting and feeding animals and birds are encouraged at this stage. All the activities provided aim to encourage important social skills (turn taking, sharing, playing in groups and co-operating).
Aquatic Room & Jungle Room (Ages 3.6 years – less than 5 years)
In the FS 1 room, all the activities are based around the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and aim to enable the children to begin to achieve the Early Learning Goals in each area. Learning is encouraged through play and having fun. Our aim is to help all children to reach their full potential at each stage of their development.
We believe that children should start school healthy, happy, communicative, sociable, curious, active and ready and equipped for the next stage of life and learning. Being prepared for school is not just simply about knowing letters and numbers. It is about making sure that children are ready to make friends, to play, to ask for what they need and say what they think.

The children take turns to feed and pet the animals at designated time slots.

It also provides our children opportunities to develop empathy and social skills, builds their self-esteem and encourages calmness and relaxation.
