All staff are very friendly, and dedicated to working with children. Because staff work in the same rooms with the same children, we ensure close, stable relations are formed between children and adults. Your child will be allocated a key person who will help your child to settle into nursery life and will be happy to discuss your childs development or any concerns or queries you may have.
All staff are qualified to at least level 3 standard or above and some are working towards higher level qualifications. The Nursery promotes professional development and staff are encouraged to gain further qualifications and update training to keep up to date with current legislation and practice in the childcare sector.
We encourage healthy eating in the nursery and all our food is freshly prepared and home cooked using good quality ingredients in the adjoining coffee shop. Lunch is on a 4 week rolling menu, which is reviewed and changed periodically. We also cater for any dietary requirements i.e. due to medical needs, religion or personal choice.
We provide breakfast before 8.40 a.m. A snack of fresh fruit and milk is offered around 10.00a.m and a hot lunch followed by a pudding is provided at 11.40am. At 3.30pm we have a snack of fresh fruit, toast or a range of sandwiches, crumpets, bagels etc. We also ask parents to bring in a water bottle or cup from home and this is topped up throughout the day to ensure children always have a drink available.
