I am open from 7am until 7pm to provide care and education for babies and toddlers in the Ashfield, Derbyshire and surrounding area.
I work to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) which sets out welfare and developmental goals for children five years and under. We deliver the EYFS through indoor and outdoor play as well as outings, basing activities around the children's interests.
Parents are able to track their child’s progress through the ‘Eylog’ system where photographs, observations and assessments are uploaded to a secure site.
Children can vary in the time it takes them to settle in. It is a good idea to have one or two initial visits where the parent stays with the child for all or most of the time. I would then recommend two settling in sessions where parents can leave the child for 2 hours.
Being with other children who already feel happy and secure is a big help in getting new little ones settled in. Our children are very good at making new friends feel welcome and part of the family.
I offer places for 3 and 4 year olds who are entitled to the 15 hours funded early years education and also offer 30 hours funding for parents who qualify for this.
