The Early Years Foundation Stage framework states that we are able to care for up to 6 children under 5 years, two of which may be under 12 months at any one time. We can also care for five children between the age of 5 and 8 years. We drop off and collect from Strathmore Infant school including the Pre school and Nursery and Wilshere Dacre Junior school.
We tend not to operate at our maximum capacity because we like to leave room for flexibility for parents and ourselves.
We provide lunch, dinner and snacks. We cook homemade healthy meals and sit around the big table together chatting and learning good table manners from each other. The children are encouraged to try new foods and think about being healthy.
We teach the babies and little ones baby sign, and continue to see great results enabling them to communicate before their speech has developed.
