The practitioners at the setting are dedicated to improving their knowledge and skills, they attend regular training, as a setting we are graduate lead, this leads to a greater knowledge and consistent practice.
The adult to child ratio is 1:3 for under 2’s and 1:4 for under 3’s.
Resources are carefully selected to encourage and nurture your child’s needs. We ask that you complete a transition form to pass on your knowledge of your child to us. We will also follow your routine as much as possible. As your child becomes more mobile we provide sand, water, play dough and paint experiences to widen their knowledge and understanding.
Buglins and Squirrels
The adult to child ratio is 1:8 for children 3 to school age and 1:4 for children 2 to 3 years.
There is a more formal approach to learning in the Buglins and Squirrels (pre-school) following the guidelines or the EYFS, activities are based around children’s interests, knowledge and abilities. With encouragement we aim to extend the children’s experiences to help them build a holistic picture of a well-rounded child, who is confident, independent and has positive self-esteem. We encourage children to flourish as individuals. During the transition between nursery and school, we liaise with the local primary school; the preschool children attend sportsday, nativity and summer picnic.
