The Dolphins groups are based in our large bright under 2 year old room which has been purpose built with all safety features being considered. This brand new room boasts fantastic facilities including plenty of natural lighting provided and large windows. This room can cater for up to 27 children between the ages of six weeks to two years. The staff who are based in this room have been specifically selected and are highly trained professionals who understand the children's needs as well as providing tender loving care in a happy and secure environment whilst building a close relationship with both the children and parents.
The Penguins group caters for up to 28 children aged 2 – 3 years working on a staff ratio of one staff member to every four children. The aim of the staff in the Penguins group is to provide a high standard of care to aid the individual child's learning and development. The Penguins day is structured around the use of weekly planners that encourage each child to learn and recognise colours, shapes and numbers and develop their language skills at their own pace.
The Polar Bears group is our pre-school group and is registered to cater for up to 48 children. This group works on a staff ratio of one staff member to every eight children or one to thirteen if we have a staff member who has achieved graduate leader which is an Early Years Professional Status qualification (EYPS – equivalent to a level 6). The room is very spacious and airy and offers children many different areas of play.
