Introduction to Daycare

Our daycare provision is open from 7.45am - 5.30pm and is an all year round paid provision for two year olds. We are also registered to take children who are three years old. This means children can come before they are eligible for a funded space in nursery which can really support them to settle before starting in nursery.

We also have ten spaces for funded two year old children. Please see out daycare admissions policy for admissions criteria.
 
The daycare is fully integrated with the nursery school. Once the children have had a chance to settle/play in the daycare room they join in with the fun in the nursery school while still be able to access the daycare provision when they need it for quieter time like for example lunch and nap time.

TYE Funded Children
 
We have ten spaces for TYE funded children in our provision. We will try to accommodate your choice of sessions, but we may be limited when we are very full. You will need to show our office staff your funding code when you apply.  If there is not a space when you first apply  we will add you to the waiting list and get in touch as soon as a space becomes available.
 
Key Person Approach

In order to ensure every child in the daycare is given the appropriate level of attention and care, a key person is appointed for each child. A key person is a named member of staff assigned to an individual child to support their development and act as the key point of contact for the child and their parents. The key person has special responsibilities for working with a small number of children and helps build and develop positive relationships with children and supports them to have a secure attachment with one adult when they are away from their main caregiver.

Outdoor space

The daycare has a secure garden attached directly to the classrooms which also has easy access to the nursery outdoor space. This gives the children plenty of  opportunity to play and explore outside whatever the weather.  We have just refurbished our main garden to include a lovely forest school area for all the settings to use and the daycare and nursery children have a brand new mud kitchen and growing area. We ensure that our doors are open throughout the day so that the children can choose to be outside if they wish. Please make sure you bring waterproof clothing and wellies for your child so they can be outside rain or shine!
