The nursery is a purpose built self contained unit is the grounds of Hillsborough Campus. It is a 40 place nursery offering care for children from six months to 8 years. Opening times are Monday to Friday 8.00 am - 6pm 50 weeks per year. We offer care for children of students, staff and the wider community and are accessible to ALL. Drop in sessions are often available. Healthy snacks are provided mid morning and mid afternoon, parents provide a healthy packed lunch.
Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure. Our stable staff team work closely with parents and other professionals to ensure that children and families receive a high quality professional service tailored to individual needs. Our home and nursery links include a take home bear which children take to visit their home taking photos and recording her adventures. We also have a children’s library.
All children are allocated a key person who works with our Early Years Professional to develop and record their individual learning and progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage. We believe it is important to be spontaneous and have fun with the children and also to plan for specific experiences, opportunities and activities to meet children’s individual’s needs and interests.
The nursery is OFSTED inspected, and at our last inspection in February 2009 the record of inspection judgement was Good. The inspector wrote; “Overall the quality of the provision is good. Effective promotion of children’s safety and well-being and high levels of support ensures they make good progress in their all round learning and development.” The full report can be viewed on the website; www.ofsted.gov.uk
