Learning

The toys and equipment I have available provide opportunities for the children, on their own & with adult help, to develop new skills and concepts in the course of their play and exploration.

The equipment offered to the children will be developmentally appropiate for their age and allow challenges to developing physical, social, personal and intellectual skills.



Working With Parents

Below is a list of how I work and communicate with you as parents - keeping you involved / working together in your child's development.

  • Quick chat on child's arrival and when leaving.
  • Daily written note - including nappy changes, meals/snacks, sleep, places we've been, play, points of interest from the day.
  • Notice Board - includes ofsted information, trips coming up and other general information.
  • Newsletter - issued quarterly, what we have done, what we plan to do, special events, birthdays/holidays and any other information.
  • Photographic Disc - every 3/4 months these are given to the parents to show the adventures, achievements and fun times that we have had. This enables the parents to talk to their child and be more involved.

There is always a 2 way flow of communication.

All children & adults are treated with equal concern and are made to feel welcome in my home.
Wherever possible I try to meet parent's requests for the care of their children according to their values and practices, preferences and attitudes.



Food

Mealtimes can play an important part of social life of the children in my care, as well as reinforcing children's understanding of the importance of healthy eating.

I always provide fruit & vegetables to contribute towards the "5 a day" recommended daily amount. Also included will be a hot lunch e.g Cottage Pie / Jacket Potato & Cheese and healthy snacks throughout the day.
The children will be encouraged to develop good eating skills and table manners.
