Facilities and setup
The Nursery is split into 3 different rooms and each room accommodates a different age group. Stepping Stones is for children aged 3 to 4 years old. The second room, Pebbles, is for 2 to 3 years old and Cuddle Corner is for babies from 3 months to 2 years old.
We have introduced free flow between the Pebbles and Stepping Stones, which gives the children more choices as there are more activities on offer through the two rooms; this happens at set times during the daily routine and the older babies are also included in the activity time with a member of staff from Cuddle Corner.
The children from all age groups benefit from the use of two garden areas. Our sensory garden is under cover and includes wind chimes, plants and windmills. The second garden is a lot bigger and is used for the children to play with their outdoor toys and we also organise racing games and activities such as painting and water play.
During the day healthy and nutritious meals are provided. Breakfasts can include cereal, toast and fruit. Dinner is a cooked meal such as a roast dinner or spaghetti bolognese, and puddings such as fresh fruit or apple pie. Tea varies from spaghetti on toast to wholemeal sandwich and vegetable nuggets. Weekly menus are on display in the Nursery for parents to refer to. Fresh fruit is provided every day together with bottled water that the children can help themselves to and we cater for children with specialised diets.
The Nursery operates a waiting list for morning, afternoon and all day sessions.
If you would like to add your name to the waiting list or if you would like further information on any aspect of the Nursery please contact the Nursery Manager on 024 7688 7305 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can complete our waiting list form.
The Nursery accepts workplace childcare vouchers such as Busy Bees and we also offer funding from the City Council for all our 3 to 4 year olds. Every 3 year old child is entitled to this regardless of their circumstances and this can be claimed the term after their third birthday.
