WELCOME TO OUR PARENTS' CORNER
Parents and carers are important members of the provision with valuable knowledge and information to share about their children. By sharing information, you can make sure that the provision provides the most appropriate care and education for your child.
We encourage you to become involved in all aspects of the provision. You can be involved in the provision's management. We also keep you up-to-date and involved by holding regular parent evenings and open days. Newsletters and a parent’s notice board also share the latest information about nursery activities. There is also a sharing tree where parents can contribute to planning and also share their thoughts and comments about the nursery.
We want your child to feel happy and safe with us. During the settling-in period you will meet your child’s key worker and they will be able to support you if you are feeling anxious and answer any questions you may have. The provision has a settling-in policy and a copy is available on request.
The fees currently charged by the nursery are available on request. All fees are inclusive of meals and snacks. The nursery also has funded free nursery places for two year olds and three to five year olds. The two year old free places are subject to parents qualifying for the entitlement. All information is provided to parents with regards to fees and also free funded places criteria and eligibility.

Our provision complies with regulatory requirements and has the appropriate number of qualified staff for the children attending. We provide in-service training and staff development opportunities to continually update their skills, knowledge experience. Due to our commitment to safeguard children, we follow a carefully structured recruitment and selection procedure. All new staff must undergo a range of security checks including criminal record disclosures, reference and qualification checks and successfully complete a probation period.and
The provision operates a key worker system and upon joining you and your child will receive support from an experienced member of staff responsible for your child's individual needs. Your child's key worker will find out from you about your child's interests, likes, dislikes and special requirements. Although the key worker will be your dedicated point of contact for questions and answers, all staff will be happy to feed back or discuss any concerns with you. The key worker will also monitor and keep confidential records of your child's progress and achievements. These records are always available for you to see and contribute towards.
The Early Years Foundation Stage provides the statutory framework for young children’s learning and development from birth. We provide a broad range of challenging and stimulating play activities, both indoors and outdoors, that promote children's overall development. Individual planning enables each child to meet his/her personal goals and we take into account any special educational needs. The three prime areas of learning are the following:
1. Personal, social and emotional development.
2. Communication and language.
3. Physical development.
The four specific areas of learning are the following:
3. Understanding the world.
4. Expressive arts and design.
We assess how young children are learning and developing by observing them frequently. We believe that parents know their children best and we ask them to contribute to assessment, sharing information about what their children like to do at home and how parents are supporting development.
