Bookings for 3 & 4 year old children now being taken for September 2008.
Each area ensures correct staffing ratios are maintained at all times. We employ Qualified Nursery Nurses whom are assisted by Nursery Assistants (working towards a child care qualification). They are chosen with great care through interviews, police and OFSTED checks, references, and equally important on their personality and ability to ensure high standards of care are constantly maintained.
Children in our care are offered focused and non focused activities, which run throughout the whole nursery. We strive towards preparing children for their first years at school – following the birth - three matters framework and the early foundation stage profile.
Our aim is to learn through play!
We are registered for the Nursery Education Grant and as of April 2007 we are able to offer 3 & 4 year old children 15 hours per week free (term time only) of your choice, funded by the Government.
