Welfare of the Children

Emphasis is placed on a homely atmosphere particularly in the youngest baby area. The Nursery is sensitive to the needs of new parents as well as the child, especially during a potentially difficult settling in period.

Good liaison with staff at this time is essential. A Key Person takes responsibility for new children starting and a bond is encouraged but it is also important for the children’s development and socialisation that they respond well to other members of staff.

Transition Statement

Children move up to the next area of the Nursery when we feel they are ready. We take great thought and care over this and introduce short regular visits prior to the transfer.

We sometimes make it possible for children to transfer in pairs. We envisage the Nursery as a whole, and continued contact between all staff and children. We also encourage siblings to have regular contact with each other. We hold a Transition Policy available to parents in our Policy and Procedures Folder.

Routines

Each room has their own routine and a daily plan of activities which are displayed for parents.

Sleep

We always discuss sleeping arrangements with parents. We can provide cots, sleeping mats and bedding for all children according to their needs.

 

Meals

We have a large on site kitchen, and our experienced cook prepares fresh food for the children every day.Meat, fresh vegetables and fruit are delivered on a regular basis. We do not use nuts in the Nursery.

Breakfast is available until 9 am, with a choice of cereal, toast and fruit. A healthy midmorning snack of fresh fruit or vegetables, bread sticks or crackers and milk or water is offered at 10 am. A cooked meal and dessert is served at 12.00 pm. At 3.30 pm a hot or cold tea is provided, with fresh fruit or yoghurt.

We encourage children to be respectful of others at meal times and we teach them good table manners. Allergies and specific dietary requirements can be catered for.

Babies are offered an appropriate diet that does not contain extra salt, sugar or unnecessary additives.We keep parents informed of the meal plans and our nutrition policy is displayed in the entrance hall.

Welfare
Health and safety is considered of upmost importance and the Nursery practices a range of saftey policies and procedures which are available for you to read. To ensure security and well being, we allocate a ‘key person’ for each child. This helps us to ensure that each child is individually being cared for and feels cherished.
