Our aim and commitment to each child is to provide a safe and secure environment in which they may develop both emotionally and educationally at a pace appropriate to the individual and to ensure that this is enjoyable for every child in our care. We are here to make sure that ‘Every Child Matters.’
The nursery has been established for over 30 years. It is approved by the Garrison Commander and is regularly inspected by OFSTED.
We have three, four or five groups depending on the number of children at the nursery, from one year to school age. The children are grouped according to which year they go to First school, so that they stay with their friends and don’t get moved about. This may of course differ depending on each child’s individual needs. Staff/child ratios are in accordance with OFSTED requirements.
The majority of the staff is qualified to NVQ Level III and training for all staff in all areas of the curriculum and care is ongoing.
We follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework. You may see your child’s records at any time. These are confidential. Only those staff with a ‘need to know’ have access to them. Each child has a nominated key person with special responsibility for that child.
All children of the appropriate age are welcome at the nursery regardless of race, culture, religion or any special needs. We particularly value developing a good relationship with all families and carers. Your input is of great importance, as you know your child better than anyone. Working, as a team will make sure that each child’s individual needs are appropriately met.
You are most welcome at the nursery anytime. NO APPOINTMENT is necessary.
