The Manager is a qualified Teacher, a Forest School Leader and also has Early Years Professional Status. The Deputy Manager also holds Early Years Professional status and another staff member is a qualified Forest School Assistant. All staff hold at least a Level 3 qualification in Childcare and we have been together as a team for many years.
We aim to provide a safe, welcoming and stimulating play environment with opportunities for exploration and free choice, allowing the children to develop socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. Above all we aim for a home from home feeling where the children enjoy themselves whist they learn. The setting is open plan and all children have access to all areas. We do not separate the different age groups.
We supply basic snacks at each session, but lunches are provided by parents.
We welcome parents into the setting to share any special occasions or skills that they may have.
We advise parents to book their place as soon as possible as we fill up very quickly with only 21 places per session. We recommend that parents visit the setting to meet the staff and get further information, and also suggest that parents bring their children to come and have an initial play with us.
We will be offering the extended 30 hour entitlement from September 2017.
