Our swallows are aged between approximately 2 and 3 years, dependent on the child’s individual . The staff child ratio is 1:4 accommodating a maximum of 20 children.
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.
When your child is ready for toilet training we have leaflets, books and a wealth of experience to help you and your child, children are encouraged to use the bathroom when required.
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.
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.
Each child 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 child.
Visits and the transition to the kingfishers start the term before your child is due to move.
