Setting

Our day care is situated at the Beaumont social centre.  It consists of a large open plan room.

The room is transformed on a daily basis into a child friendly inviting childcare setting.

We provide zoned areas of learning for the children to experience different and diverse learning experiences, we have maths, book/quiet area, messy, role play, construction, small world, creative area and a snack bar.  We provide a variety of snacks on adaily basis and our snack bar encourages the children to be independent and make choices.

The activities provided in these areas are child choice, we work along side the foundation stage and birth to three matters.  We are working towards the early years foundation stage framework, which will be implemented as of September 2008.

We carry out adult led activities as well as child-initiated activities.  We base our adult led activities on the development of individual children.

It is important that parents, carers and children have a key role in what they learn and enjoy, therefore we adopt/change activities to suit individual interests.

We go on regular trips to the park and provide outdoor opportunities on a daily basis.

Link with parents

The children each have a development file that contains

  • Observations
  • Personal information
  • Children's next steps
  • Early learning profile
  • Development and progression records.
Parents are welcome to view these files at any time, parents and carers are also welcome to spend time within the setting which provides a good home - nursery link.

Parents receive a daily diary which gives you the opportunity to contribute  towards your child's learning experiences, parents provide us with information on what the children enjoy at home to ensure continuity of care.

Staff

All childrenhave a key person that they work closely with on a regular basis, that key member of staff will work with your child and at times will have one to one time with them. This person is responsible for providing activities to meet your child's needs, interests and development.  All staff working at the Beaumont centre have a childcare qualification, are friendly caring and welcoming.

Meals

We cater for the individual child, we provide a variety of food.  We have a 3 week menu basis for lunch and evening meals, we provide a hot home cooked meal at tea time and some parents choose to bring in their own lunches for their child.  Please see our menus for more information.
