Beechwood at Meriden houses a cheerful and stimulating 12 place baby room. Qualified staff who have been with Beechwood for many years take care of the children aged from 6 weeks to around 24 months where there is plenty to do from nice quiet story times to really messy play such as painting with feet, playdough and even mashed potato! Children also have access to many toys and activities for their own choice of free play. There is a separate room for cots for those necessary naps and a variety of dietary needs are catered for.
Babies are nurtured and valued by caring staff who will follow your child’s own routine, ensuring that they feel comfortable and secure in an inviting home from home atmosphere. Each child has their own keyworker chosen by the child and parent to liaise with parents and ensure that all other team members are aware of your child’s individual needs. Your child’s progress is monitored throughout their time in baby room and they are prepared for their journey through the rest of their nursery years.
Tweenies and preschool are housed in a large colourful room where caring and sharing are encouraged and there is plenty of fun to be had. A comfortable routine that the children find easy to follow and daily planning to ensure every child’s needs are met. Keyworkers liaise closely with parents and record each child’s progress using an online learning journal called Tapestry. Parents are encouraged to view their child’s progress and contribute to their journal. Activities are stimulating and fun for all. Children have the opportunity to become involved in lots of interesting and sometimes messy play. Outdoor play happens daily in a large, safe and exciting garden which hosts a mud kitchen, lots of climbing areas and plenty of open space.
Qualified staff ensure that all learning experiences meet the Early Years Foundation Stage requirements and are offered to each and every child, adapting activities to suit individual needs. A quiet room is available and offers children the chance to relax and listen to stories or take a nap.
Wraparound is available for nursery age children with collection and drop-offs to Meriden School.
Our 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. Suitable for children aged from 4 to 11 years old, 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. Just remember to bring spare clothes and a sense of humour.
