Open 7am until 7pm all year round and situated in Jacksdale, just by the garden centre which is 5 minutes from J27 of the M1.
We have a child centred approach and therefore activities are often led by the children, resources are then provided to suit individual needs and interests.
There is a big emphasis on outdoor play and exploring the natural world.
We make good use of nearby play parks and we are so lucky to have such a lovely nature reserve within easy walking distance. Here the children can learn about the seasons and experience all that nature has to offer. We are also just a short walk from the library where we make regular visits and the children are able to borrow books either to take home or to keep here.
In the school holidays we try to have at least 2 full days out per week where we visit Bolsover Castle, Newstead Abbey, Sherwood Pines, Rufford Park etc.
Quality Inspection feedback 27th June 2017
Tracy has a good understanding of the current level of learning for all the children in her care. She has clear expectations of where she needs to develop children’s learning and development and can explain how she plans to implement these developmental activities within her routines. Children are confident to seek Tracy out if they need her support and have formed strong attachments.
Tracy uses positive praise and encouragement to the children and uses herself to promote positive behaviour through her ability to be a positive role model. She provides healthy foods which she shares with the children to support and encourage health and self care routines.
Tracy demonstrates activities and language to help develop children’s understanding and speaking skills Tracy encourages children to explore their own environment independently, although she is always on hand to provide support if it is needed. Children are provided with choices to ensure they are beginning to make their own decisions and have their own ideas. Tracy is confident to allow the children to take the learning in the direction they would like to take it.
