Welcome to George Eliot Kindergarten,
We are a family run business and therefore recognise the importance of working closely with parents to support the link between home and nursery life. We provide childcare for children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years, Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. The nursery is open 52 weeks a year and is only closed for Bank Holidays.
Our aim is to ensure all children are provided with an enjoyable and enriching nursery experience as their happiness and wellbeing is our main priority. We do this by providing:
where all children can grow in confidence and independence. We plan our environment to meet the individual needs of children and we ensure there are a range of stimulating, learning opportunities available to children daily.
which meets the needs of all children. Staff will plan your child’s settling period with you; some children need a gradual introduction to nursery life which builds up slowly the amount of time they stay on their own each day, until they can cope with a full session or whole day.
this will help your child to feel secure and happy in their environment and enable them to continue their learning. It will also enable you as the parent or carer to be at ease and informed about how your child is managing the transition process.
and other professionals to meet the individual needs of all families. Our policies and procedures detailing nursery life and our working practice are available for you to view.
This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom they are specifically responsible. Your child’s key person will work with you to make sure that what the nursery provides is right for your child’s needs and interests. Your child’s key worker will help your child to settle when they first start at nursery and offer support to your child throughout their time with us. You are always welcome to come in and speak with your child’s key person. We also use a secure app called Tapestry as a way of electronically sharing your child’s learning and development with you whilst they are at nursery. This also includes a feature for us to share home learning activities and parents can add on children’s achievements and activities from home also. Tapestry offers a ‘Memo Page’ feature where we share monthly newsletters, updates and information for parents and home learning ideas.
as we know investing in their skills and qualifications enables us to provide l high quality childcare. All staff are required to complete Paediatric First Aid training.
