Our Units

We want you to have peace of mind when you leave your children with us, knowing that they will be loved and cared for in a friendly, safe and cheerful environment. Each family will have a key person as a familiar point of contact whilst your child is in our care. Children learn when they are in a happy atmosphere and we provide a variety of equipment and activities especially selected to enhance their learning experience.

The Nursery follows the revised Early Years Foundation Stage which helps young children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being.

This framework recognises that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.

Every day time is devoted to develop their language, number, reading and writing skills. The children are divided into small groups to help the learning process. Care is taken to ensure the children have adequate rest periods, structured learning activities, and both indoor and outdoor play sessions. They are given time to express themselves through role play, music and free choice activities. All this develops their intellectual, emotional and social abilities and responses as well as their physical, motor and finer manipulative skills.

All staff are either fully qualified or undergo training with us to achieve level 2 or above in appropriate childcare qualifications. They regularly attend courses to enhance their professional development and practice. All staff are required to attend a 12-hour paediatric first aid course which includes infant resuscitation. This certificate is updated every three years. It is also compulsory for staff to undergo child protection training both in-house and with Surrey County Council. We feel this gives the right blend of experience and keenness to learn, and keeps us right up to date with any new developments.

As a close-knit friendly team it is of utmost importance for us to have the best staff. All staff at the nursery have been selected for their expertise, caring disposition and enthusiasm for working with young children, as well as their excellent communication skills. Regular staff meetings take place to provide continuity of learning. Formal Parents' Evenings are held, but you are of course welcome to speak to members of staff whenever you feel the need arises.

Meals are freshly prepared on site, with consideration given to ensure a varied and well balanced diet. Vegetarians and special diets are catered for and a copy of the weekly menu is displayed on the notice board. Meal times are conducted in a relaxed atmosphere and encouragement is given to aid socially acceptable behaviour. At all times the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness are maintained. Fire practices are regularly carried out, and there is a no-smoking policy enforced in the premises.

For the security of the children, you are requested to inform a member of staff if anyone other than yourself will be collecting your child. In some circumstances written authorisation may be required.

Should you have any problems concerning your child or the nursery please contact either a member of staff or the Manager. We will do our best to sort out any issues as they arise.
