Beechcroft Day Nursery provides day care for children between the ages of 3months and 5 years of age. Our nursery has been split into two separate rooms. Our Baby Room and Toddler Room. Each room caters to the needs of the children within. Both rooms have a nappy changing area and the toddler room also has access to ‘child’ size toilets to encourage self-care and independence.
We also have a garden which the children greatly enjoy. The garden gives children access to a sand pit and a mud kitchen which really gets the children’s imagination going. This is provided along with our climbing frame and other equipment. The garden is also the happy home to our rabbits and guinea pigs. The children often interact with these animals helping to feed and water them.
We are visited on a weekly basis by outside resources who come and do dance and football sessions with the children. These sessions allow for more opportunities for expressive arts and physical development. They encourage the children to have fun and offer more chances for them to socialise with their friends.
The children attending Beechcroft Day Nursery receive nutritious meals that are rotated and cooked onsite by a cook who provides a variety of food differentiating when necessary for our children with allergies or cultural preferences. The children eat together and are encouraged to socialise, use words and to eat independently.
Our staff are qualified in child care and work together as a considerate team to provide caring conditions which allow our children to strive. We also aim to ensure all staff members are first aid trained and receive additional training when needed, so they may develop their personal skills and broaden their knowledge in caring for and educating young children.Our staff are friendly and happy to take into account any possible additional needs.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines and development requirements in all 7 areas of learning.
