Beechwood Childcare at Burman Infant School
At Burman we offer a variety of provisions to suit your needs. A full day nursery service for children aged two and above, wraparound care for Burman School Nursery and an Out of School Club offering a service not only before and after school, but also whenever school is closed. This service is open to children aged three to eleven even if they don’t attend Burman school. We operate from purpose built, self-contained accommodation on the school site and open every day of the year except bank holidays and for a week at Christmas. The facility is beautifully resourced and is open from 7.30 am until 6.00 pm. Healthy meals and snacks are provided. We have a qualified and trained First Aider on site at all time.
Children attending the nursery are offered a wide range of activities to enhance their education, in a fun environment. Activities available at every session include art and craft, sand and water, music and dance, small world, construction toys, books and storytelling, role play and dressing up and a variety of climbing frames and outdoor toys. The day is structured to ensure that all our children are able to develop in ways that best suit their individual needs. We take regular trips to the library, park and other places of interest to encourage involvement with the local community. Staff monitor and assess the children’s development and keep individual records of each child’s achievements to share with you (pre-school children). The friendly, caring staff take time to introduce themselves to your child and settling in sessions are always available.
We have access to a small wooded area on school property which the children visit regularly with our Forest School qualified team members. We try to be outside in all safe weather conditions, so ask that parents provide appropriate clothing for this all year round activity. All nursery children are provided with a named and self-decorated bag when they first start to keep their wellies and outdoor clothing so that they are always prepared for Forest School.
If your child attends Burman school nursery, staff work closely with them to ensure continuity, supporting the children with the transition into their classroom at school. Children are escorted to and from school and communication books are provided to ensure excellent communication between everyone who cares for your child – our setting, the school and you, the parent.
Our Out of School Club is exciting and fun. Children help to plan their own activities and no two days are ever the same from water fights to day trips to cookery lessons. They can choose from very active fun or quiet relaxing activities and qualified staff are available to help and support their choices. We provide activities suitable for the whole age range. They are encouraged to make new friends and help each other. A good time is had by all.
There is a suggestion box available in our reception area which we encourage parents to use to offer any ideas they feel might enhance and improve the quality of care we offer. This supports our Parental Involvement Policy and we look forward to working with you in this step of your children’s education.
