Safety and Care
We built our services around the expectations we had for our own children with their safety and wellbeing our biggest priority.
Although all parents need at least a little support, it can still be tough adjusting to leaving your child in the care of others, and even tougher trusting that they’re getting genuinely cared for, kept in a safe environment and having their developmental needs met.
Something we pride ourselves on is the amount of individual attention we can give each child. We aim to keep groups perfectly balanced, exceeding the following minimum ratios of staff to children and ensuring really focused care for everyone:
Children under two years: one member of staff for every three children
Children two to three years: one member of staff for every four children
Children three to five years: one member of staff for every eight children
We look after every child as if they are our own and have designed the way our staff work around that concept using key workers. Every child and their family has their own key person who will spend time getting to know them as individuals and you as parents. They help you make the transition from home to nursery and spend time with you each day to keep their knowledge of your child up to date; they carry out assessments and are constantly making sure that our activities and learning programmes are being enjoyed and understood; after all, no two children are the same and the key worker ensures that everyone develops in line with their abilities.
All our key workers are qualified in childcare and undertake a minimum of four training sessions per year to ensure they are up to date with all the latest ideas in childcare, giving your child the best experience possible.
Care isn’t only about the people, it’s also important for the centres themselves to offer children something and we ensure all our buildings are absolutely safe and secure, decorated in calming colours and full of equipment and toys of outstanding quality. Most of our centres are open plan with various areas set aside for different activities, decorated with displays of the children’s work.
You can see all of this in action for yourself by contacting us to arrange a visit to any one of the centres; we look forward to hearing from you!
