After receiving feedback from parents following their initial visit, the thing they found hardest was “what should they should look for in a nursery and what questions they should ask?”. We would encourage parents to visit many other nurseries to get a perspective on what suits them.
Here are few examples of questions to ask when visiting a day nursery:
Very low – most staff have been with us from 6-8 years and one manager since we opened 19 years ago.
Yes and the garden allows for children from different rooms to socialize together.
In Claremont Park and Greenhill we have designated sleep rooms for the younger children. In all nurseries older children sleep in their own rooms on sleep mats and linen.
We supply formula for babies and snack morning and afternoon with milk and a home cooked lunch for all.
Staff are the role models for good behaviour and actively encourage positive behaviour in the children.
Yes your child will be with a group of children of the same age and they will move through the nursery together.
Yes – at present the funding if 16hrs per week within term time. We will pay this back to you at the end of each term.
Yes we take all vouchers.
Through contact with room staff daily, via the information board in each room and through their personal profiles and Learning journals.
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 8:00am to 6:00pm. Open throughout the year except Christmas day to New Year.
