Loving, fun, homely and educational
I welcome children ages 6 months to 5 years on a full or part time basis. I am happy to offer 2,3 and 4 year funded spaces We attend regular groups including the award winning Hartbeeps every Wednesday morning. We spend time at our stables grooming the ponies and on Thursday mornings we attend Forest School We visit farms, fire stations, zoo's, museums, theatres, playgroups and parks to name a few. There is no extra charge for these to fee paying children. We also have regular visits to our home including falconry, reptiles, guide dogs and the mobile farm. We hatch our own chicks in Spring too!
Breakfast, lunch and snacks are all provided and included for fee paying children. All children have their own file which we call their "Learning Journey". This includes pictures, artwork, developmental reviews and is your childs to keep. These make a wonderful memory book to treasure for when children grow up. As a professional childcarer I also follow the EYFS which is detailed below:
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
