Professional Quality childcare
We combine free play with the Department of Education’s learning framework the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). These areas underpin the requirements for a child’s early development. Each child has their own individual learning journal folder that tracks their progress while here in our care.
Our parents receive a daily text message telling them what their child did that day and meals eaten. These also a verbal handover in the mornings and evenings. Each day is different we provide activities and experiences from which the children will learn. Two and three year old funding places are full at present.
We offer a range of activities including music and movement, play dough, art & crafts, cookery, sandplay, reading, messy play, Construction play such as building blocks. Posting letters home, picnics out, play park, making videos. These all encourage imagination and language skills as well as creative play to build a child’s imagination.
