Our huge Baby Room caters for babies and young children aged 0-24 months. We have a fabulous play room with a separate changing area, sleep room and milk kitchen, as well as a covered outdoor sleep area, separate secure outdoor play area, their own garden and new sand pit. We operate to a maximum number of 3 babies per staff member at any time. Your child will be allocated a key person who will be responsible for learning everything about them before they start with us, their likes, dislikes, comforters, family, what they enjoy most and this will give you the confidence to leave your child. Our key worker scheme that ensures that your child settles into the nursery life in a calm and caring way, and a buddy system so that if your keyworker is away for any reason, you and they know who to turn to.
The children can enjoy a wide variety of age appropriate toys, activities and equipment, designed to encourage their development and stimulate both cognitive and physical growthas well as encouraging their natural curiosity into the world around them. We can have separate areas for children aged up to 12 months, and up to 2 years so small babies are safely looked after away from children ‘on the move’.
Our Toddler Room is designed for children aged 24- 36 months who are developing their independence and personality, with a ratio of no more than 4 children per member of staff. Our purpose built facilities will stimulate your child’s development, with messy play, role play, painting, activity games, and reading areas as well as an outdoor free-flow area. Toddlers also have the use of their own changing area with sinks and toilets to help encourage toilet training and each child is helped and supported through this when they are ready. The focus in activities for this group is setting the foundations for life long learning through purposeful play and as your child becomes more aware of their friends around them we all play together and share in developing new skills every day.
Our Pre-School room complies with all Ofsted requirements and has its own outdoor play & learning area with specially created gardens, extended out into Stoneleigh Park site for walks and adventures. Our Pre-School ratio is no more than 8 children per member of staff.
Children in this age group are developing confidence through their learning and are establishing social skills with their friends. The activities they experience daily supports their learning development and the more structured days prepares them for their early years’ education when they join school. Child-led play activities help develop skills in early reading, maths, mark-making, information technology and imaginative play. The way the staff interact with the children encourages both group and independent play to ensure each child develops to their full
potential. Our aim is to encourage children in this age group to be active learners for life as their own skills and knowledge of the world around them increases every day.
We are registered to accommodate 10 children, up to the age of 8 years, during school holidays. Please contact Penny in advance of the school break to organise a place for your older child.
