"Every Child Matters"
At Children 1st Day Nursery, we are committed to giving your child the best start in life. This journey begins at Nursery. We offer the following services:
Settling In Period
Every child settles differently. Working closely with parents we arrange dates and times so that the transition from home to Nursery runs smoothly. We also incorporate Home Visits. This is a good experience for us to get to know the children's family life.
A key person will be designated, who will offer security, continuity and reassurance. They will usually be the one that will feed, soothe and change your child. They are in the best position to understand your child's individual needs and to share information with you about your child's experiences in Nursery.
EYFS - Early years Foundation stage
We offer our children a play - based curriculum which meets all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This supports all aspects of their learning and development.
