Our puffins are aged between approximately 18 months and 27 months dependent on the child’s individual needs. The staff child ratio is 1:3 accommodating a maximum of 18 children over two well equipped rooms.
We work within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and one of our priorities is working in partnership with you as parents in the development of your child. Our aim is to provide a stimulating, nurturing, safe and creative environment that will allow each child to develop at their own pace.
Verbal feedback is given at the end of each day together with a weekly information sheet which will contain important information i.e. meal times, nappies, sleep and activities/experiences that the child has had throughout the day. This is completed by staff and can be taken home at the end of each week.
Each baby will be designated their own primary key person together with a co key person who together will develop a strong relationship with you and your baby.
The transition period to the next room (Swallows) occurs over a two month period. This is discussed with parents beforehand.
Regular snacks are provided for our children and all of our meals are supplied by sodexo, the trusts catering provider. There are daily choices for your child including meat, fish, vegetarian, halal. Any special dietary needs can be catered for.
