Our setting uses a key person approach to ensure that every child’s learning and care is tailored to meet his/her individual needs.
When your child first starts at the setting, their Key Person will help your child to transition into Nursery. Children develop quickly in the Early Years, and our Nursery Practitioners aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life. We refer to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to support your child’s development as we recognise each individual child develops at their own rate, and in their own way.
We aim to offer parents and carers as much care as they require but at times places may be limited and subject to availability in appropriate age ranges.
