Over 2’s: Upstairs Provision
Within our upstairs environment all children aged between 2-5 are mixed together, with a maximum of 30 children attending the setting at any one time. They are again cared for by qualified practitioners who are highly trained and knowledgeable about the development of children aged 2-5 years. As before each child and their family will be assigned a key person and a buddy who will become your main point of contact within the setting.
Our toddlers (2year olds) spend time developing their large scale mark making skills, exploring different materials and socialising with the older children. They spend time with the older children in the morning and then in the afternoon are split to spend quality time with children of their own age. All children aged 2 years are cared for on a 1:4 ratio.
Our over 3’s are provided with chances to explore phonics, early writing and numbers on a more structured level each afternoon when they are separated from the toddler children. All children aged 3 and over are cared for on a 1:8 ratio.
Things to provide – Nappies, wipes, any creams or emergency medication your child requires, comforters, a few changes of clothes, wellies, suitable indoor shoes, sun cream, sun hat, family photos
What to expect…
Within our 0-2’s rooms, all children are cared for by qualified practitioners with a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with babies and young children. Within our 0-2’s we can care for up to 15 children all of whom are on a ratio of 1:3. Each child and their family will be assigned a key person and a buddy who will become your main point of contact within the setting.
Your child’s key person will be responsible for monitoring their development and for supporting them to grow into unique, happy, learners. Each child will have their own learning journey folder which will be updated with photos, comments, and artwork on a regular basis. Practitioners within our under 2’s rooms will complete a daily diary to communicate with each family about their child’s day.
All meals are included within our daily fees and each child will be offered 3 healthy meals and two snacks. We liaise with parents and carers in relation to weaning and are available to provide you with support and guidance every step of the way.
