We are a private day care
nursery situated in South Shore, close to the beach
and parks and main bus routes.
In our Toddler Unit we provide a secure, caring, happy and structured environment where the children learn through meaningful and constructive play using materials and equipment which have been carefully selected by the staff. Play is natural to the children and is the means by which they learn. Through play children learn new skills, develop new interests and encounter new experiences.
Our pre-school is a bright and welcoming open plan room in which the children can freely access a wide range of activities. The areas and activities have been carefully prepared by staff to provide a range of learning opportunities within a play framework. The pre school day is structured to help children prepare for the transition to school. We promote independence in practical tasks, the development of their communication and social skills, the ability to follow routines and listen to instructions whilst still maintaining the play environment they need to thrive and flourish.
We ensure all of the children are provided with ample opportunities to be outside both in our own outdoor area and to visit the local parks, shopping expeditions and the beach.
It is extremely important that all nurseries comply with the staff to child ratios. At our nursery we provide additional staff to allow for one to one sessions for children who may need extra support. We pride ourselves on our parent partnerships and parents and family members are always made to feel welcome. Some of our parents give up free time to help as volunteers, other parents pop in for a coffee and catch up. We have an Open Door Policy at The Village Nursery which means that you are free to come and visit at any time of the day to check on your child. (Passwords and a log of names are required for all family members). We have recently been inspected by Ofsted and are happy to announce that we have achieved Good in every area.
