We ensure that the children have an enjoyable and stimulating time at nursery, and provide lots of activities in line with the children’s interests. We offer French lessons for pre-school children and have Music Bugs on a Friday afternoon for all of the children. The children also take part in a range of Busy Bee’s initiatives which include, ‘Wake and Shake’, ‘Imagination Station’, ‘Busy Babies’ and ‘Cooking with Me’.
We have a lovely outdoor area which looks out onto the golf course, which we take the children out on walks around. Each room have their own garden area, which have big built in sand areas, a tepee and a big wooden slide and tunnels for all children to enjoy. The children make their own choices by allowing free-flow this enables them to play inside or outside as they please. They can also have fun exploring our very own woodland den within the grounds!
We have a library bus come and visit us every 2 weeks which we take small groups of children to.
Claire our nursery chef provides healthy and delicious meals for the children. All the food is cooked fresh daily. We also cater for all dietary requirements, which can be discussed with the manager on request. We have also retained a score on the door of 5 for the last 4 years from Environmental Health!
We have an excellent relationship with our parents and have our own parent partnership committee who attend regular meetings to give us feedback which helps us enhance our nursery further.
