This gives you the chance to meet the staff team and for your child to have some time within the
nursery. Your child will be allocated with a key person.
It also gives you the opportunity to discuss your child's needs, requirements and routines which will
enable the staff to cater for their individual needs.
The nursery is well equipped and each room has a wide range of age appropriate resources which will
enhance their development.
The importance of messy play is vital in a child's development, finger painting, sand & water, shaving
foam play, mud play, and jelly play will be a regular activity within the nursery.
All activities support the EYFS - Early Years Foundation Stage.
Within the nursery we operate a No Shoe Policy, as children spend most of there time on the floor we feel
it is important that the carpets are kept as clean and hygienic as possible: shoe covers are available.
The nursery is set within Holly Trees Children's Centre, it is has two secure doors with key coded locks
the codes are only available to centre staff.
