The children are organised into 4 age groups:
Our principle aim is that our children should be happy, relaxed and content while at the nursery. They are given every opportunity to join in a range of stimulating and enjoyable activities according to their age group and individual needs. For the older children the morning and afternoon sessions pass quickly with imaginative play, a story and a sing-a-song time, exciting games and a rest when needed. For the younger children, the sessions are more relaxed and less structured.
Our children are not different from any other children. They all show immense curiosity and an insatiable desire to learn. They always derive pleasure from their endless explorations, no matter how splashed with paint and clay their clothes are, or how wet and dirty they get in the garden. They all enjoy expressing themselves by talking, singing, dancing, painting, making, playing and sharing. They all grow amazingly quickly in front of us - physically, emotionally and intellectually, especially when surrounded with affection, attentiveness and respect.
In order to ensure continuity of care each child is allocated a member of staff as a keyworker. This member of staff is usually available to settle your child into the nursery and will be available to discuss any concerns you may have, i.e. dietary needs, toilet training, any aspect of the child's individual needs and his or her physical, emotional and intellectual growth.
As a result of observing your child's day-to-day activities the keyworker will have a detailed knowledge of his or her progress and developmental needs, and therefore can plan and provide for these needs.
The keyworker will keep a record of achievements that will go with your child through their time at nursery. This will be the baby's day record book or the child's folder and learning diary, containing art work, photographs, records of what the child did and what she or he said, as well as a pre-school folder. All records are available for the parents to look at.
