The Nursery Department – 0 to 2 years
Our youngest members occupy spacious, fully equipped playrooms with adjoining, kitchen and bathroom. We are very proud of our Nursery Departments where our babies are cared for and loved by a long-standing team of highly qualified and experienced Nursery Practitioners. We hand pick our staff for their abilities and expertise with young babies. Our babies enjoy an outdoor music session and they really love exploring the gardens!
We are very particular about standards of hygiene and, in the nursery, extra care and attention is taken. For example – all the toys and equipment used are regularly washed with anti-bacterial cleaner on a regular basis (especially those toys put into mouths). Dishwashers are used, across the setting, to ensure sterilisation of all cups, dishes and cutlery.
The developmental activities for children in the Nursery Department are planned on an individual basis using the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance’ as set out by the Department of Education, by staff who have been trained in child development. Every child’s plan will be shared with their parents both verbally and through their electronic developmental record. The activities are included in the weekly planning which is available for parents to view on the notice board.
For children aged 0 to 2 years we provide a staff-to-child ratio of 1:3.
