I aim to provide a warm, safe, friendly home environment with a family atmosphere, I have a dedicated playroom with a wide range of educational toys, books and games to cover a range of ages and stages where the children can feel valued, can play freely, learn and have fun. The lounge is used as a quiet room for those children needing a nap during the day or for the older children after school to play with toys that are not suitable for younger children or complete homework. I have a large kitchen/diner with double doors leading out into the garden, this area is used for baking/craft/messy play and the table to eat all meals and snacks. There is also a down stairs toilet. At the rear of the property is a large enclosed garden where there is a range of scooters/trikes, wooden play centre, sand & water play, chalk boards, mirrors, mud kitchen, bug hotel, large building blocks, grassed area, patio area and large trampoline, weather permitting bouncy castle and paddling pool (fully supervised).
I offer 2 settling in sessions for your child to get to know me and the other children before your child joins us.
The first session is for you and your child to spend 1 hour with myself and the other children and for them to become familiar with their new surroundings and gain a feel of how we work.
The second session is also a 1 hour session but if you are comfortable and happy, I feel that you child would benefit from spending some time independently with the other children, also to reassure your child that you will be returning for them at the end of the day
Settling in sessions will be at a time convenient to you.
