We opened our doors in September 2006 and offer full and part time day care. Part time can be made up of days for the 0-2’s and for the 2-5’s we offer full day care as well to include the ‘Free Early Education Entitlement’.
We have a 50 place nursery
for children from 6 months to 5
Our opening hours: Monday – Friday from 8am to 6pm, 48 weeks
We maintain good staff ratios and operate a minimum of:
1 adult for 3 children under 2
1 adult for 4 children 2-3 years
1 adult for 8 children 3-5 years
Staffing in the rooms consists of 1 lead practitioner who has EYPS, another member of staff who holds an early years degree, 6 members of staff with level 3 and 1 member of staff with level 2.
The schedule of fees is reviewed annually – usually in September each year, but the Centre reserves the right to review fees sooner if necessary. Fees for the under threes remain higher than the rest of the Centre due to the staff:child ratios being higher for this age group. Parents are always given notice of the fee increase at least a month in advance and are provided with the revised fee structure for that year.
The school nursery offers parents the Free entitlement of either 4 mornings or afternoons plus one full day. We have 66 places and are currently full. This is staffed by one teacher, and three qualified nursery nurses.
Since becoming an academy in September 2013 we have been working at improving the consistency of good practice and resources across the two buildings.
have been working at making the provision equitable for all children. We have been linking with staff at
Barclay primary who have been working with us on improving the environment and
have made improvements to planning and focus group activities and next term we
will have a consistent approach to tracking children’s attainment across the
