Looking around the nursery

Parents are able to look around the nursery by booking an appointment. Please telephone Jade Rose, Nursery Manager on 01484 711015. Appointments are available each day at either 10.00am or 2.00pm. We limit visits to the nursery to reduce the disruption to the children in our care.

Sign a contract

To secure your child's place you are required to sign a Childcare Contract and pay 4 weeks deposit. Places can be secured up to 1 year in advance. It is a very popular nursery and places are limited, so we encourage parents to plan well ahead of time.

Home visits

All new children entering the nursery for the first time are carefully supported in their transition into the nursery. Each child's emotonal well-being is of paramount importance.

3 Induction Visits

The support is facilitated through a combination of home visits, induction vists and the use of a key person system.

 

We arrange home visits to discuss with parents their child's care and development to ensure we have the essental information prior to the first day of care. 

 

Each new child entering the nursery will have three free induction sessions to ease the transition into full-time care.

Parents Evenings

All parents have two opportunities each years to discuss in detail their child's progress and be involved in the planning for there 'next steps'.

 

Parents evening occurs every January and July.

 

The next meeting will be in January 2019.

Key Person

A key worker system operates and a practitioner takes prime responsibility for each child's care and learning. A child's key person is also a vital link in the communication between nursery and parents. 

 

"Children form exceptionally close bonds with their key person and leave their parents with ease. They are very happy, settled and emotionally secure'.
