The Wee Room

Nov

Our Nursery has 2 large play rooms available to us. The Wee Room is where you will drop off your 2 year old for their session. They have labelled pegs for hanging personal belongings and will be welcomed in by our friendly staff. Your child will settle in for 10/15 minutes in this room and then are free to choose to play else where in our setting. This could be outdoors in our enclosed play area, or next door in the Big Room where they are free to choose from activities on offer there too. A healthy snack is provided every day.

Settling In

Nov

We recognise that starting nursery is a big step for your child and for you.

Children are therefore welcome to bring any comforters with them, while you are welcome to stay as long as you feel you want to, to make sure both you and your child are happy.

Before starting at nursery, you and your child will have an introductory visit where you will have the opportunity to look around the nursery facilities and meet staff members. This allows us the opportunity to answer any questions you may have.

Class Sizes & Staffing

Nov

We believe that 'small is beautiful' - our small class sizes and high adult to child ratios are unrivalled in the area, and as such your child will benefit from the individual attention we can give them throughout their time at nursery.

There are two playrooms at the Nursery: the Wee Room where the two-year olds are based and the Big Room for 3-5 year olds. The average number of children in the Wee Room is 6 per session with one playleader and one parent helper or 2 playleaders when more than 6.
