We currently operate six self-contained full day nursery units at Haslucks Green, Meriden, Mill Lodge, Burman, Windy Arbor and St James’, Southam. We also operate a full preschool and school age centre in Winter Haven. Each provides a safe and welcoming environment, where children are able to develop at their own pace.
We provide a homely and welcoming atmosphere within our settings and strive to ensure the environment in which your child is placed is meeting their individual needs at all times. To facilitate this, each child’s home routines and requirements will be discussed with you prior to admission and any particular conditions can be met before the child is placed in our care.
There is a minimum ratio of one member of staff to eight children aged three and over, one to four for two-year olds and one to three for babies under two as required by the licensing authority. Once your child has settled into nursery they will be allocated a key worker who is responsible for monitoring their development.
Your child’s key worker will keep a daily diary of their activities and development, which will be made available to you. In addition, your child’s development will be recorded in a more formal manner, which can be discussed with you at any time.
Nutritious cooked lunches are provided to all children who attend over the lunch period as well as this drinks and a variety of healthy snacks are available during both morning and afternoon sessions. An afternoon snack tea is provided for those children attending after 4:00 pm, to sustain them until they go home.
A wide variety of play equipment and materials ensures children are able to develop in ways that best suit their individual needs continually supported by our qualified and experienced staff.
Every day is structured with a selection of activities such as art and craft, sand and water, music and dance, small world and construction toys, jigsaws, games, books and story telling, songs and nursery rhymes, computer based activities, role-play and dressing up, climbing frames, bikes and other ride-on toys and other outdoor activities.
All nurseries have an enclosed outdoor play area, many offering an all-weather canopied area, with a variety of play equipment for all ages. The outdoors is a valuable tool for development and outdoor play is encouraged during each session.
Each nursery has a specially equipped section for children aged from six weeks to two years. These offer high quality attentive care tailored to the requirements of younger children.
The high ratio of one member of staff to three children in the baby unit enables us to give the necessary greater level of attention to the younger children.
In each of our baby units there is a designated sleeping area equipped with a sufficient number of cots to ensure that each child can follow his or her own sleeping pattern. Individual bedding is provided and laundered on site.
