Each child across the nursery will receive a communication diary which is an excellent way to communicate between the early years practitioners and parents.
Children will each have a ‘Learning Journal’ where their development and progress can be tracked and monitored. Learning Journals are available for parents/ guardians to view at any time and is something that we encourage.
Daily adult focused activities are planned by the early year’s practitioners across the nursery in line with children’s learning and development, as well as their interests. Each room has Arts and Crafts boxes for children to explore and use as they wish, alongside access to sand and water play within each room.
All of our staff have been trained in Paediatric First Aid with all member of the team qualified to NVQ level 3. Our manager has completed level 6 of a BA Honours degree and are also qualified 'Early Years Professionals'.
We have a resident cook who prepares fresh and healthy meals and snacks daily. Our cook works closely with a qualified nutritionist, constantly improving our menus to provide a well-balanced and healthy diet. The kitchen has a 5* hygiene rating and the nursery menu has been awarded silver certification for healthy eating from the Local Government.
All rooms are able to take advantage of the outdoor area, transferring indoor learning to outside. Weather permitting, snacks and meal times are sometimes enjoyed outside.
