As of September 2017, we shall be accepting 3/4 year-old children who are eligible for the new 30 or 24 hours of Government Funding. Contact us now to have a look round and book your place.x
We hope to give you a flavour of what the nursery is about, but you can only appreciate the ‘real deal’ by spending time in our nursery. Once you have looked through our website, we would encourage you to contact us and make an appointment to visit our nursery.
Your child will settle in more easily in our home-from-home environment, and our huge outdoor learning area gives your child first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world. Your child has the freedom to explore, use their senses, be physically active and exuberant, and is able to learn how to take ‘risks’ within a safe environment.
Through our Key Person approach, your child is cared for as an individual, is known and valued, and has work developed around their interest.
"I love how friendly everyone is, how big the baby room is and how varied the meals are and cooked on-site"
"All the staff are amazing and any small queries ... are dealt with quickly. ... is very happy at nursery and always excited to go."
"The garden - my daughter loves to be outside, so this for me is very important. It's huge, therefore so much for the children to do as outdoor play is so important."
"Everyone is always helpful and I am confident that my son is being looked after and completes varied activities on a daily basis."
"I like that all the staff are very friendly and the children
view nursery as a home-from-home and really enjoy their time."
"I really like the homely setting and feel very comfortable leaving my son with the staff. He is always happy to see his friends and staff."
"Staff ... have good relationships with parents and parents are kept well informed regarding their child's progress and development."
"...my child had experienced a different nursery, however he never settled in as much and as easily as he has at Beacon Lane."
"In my opinion the nursery gives your child the best start in life you could ask for"
Your child learns best through play, and so we have a carefully balanced mix of adult led and child-led activities that make good use of your child’s interests.
You can leave your child at our nursery safe in the knowledge that you will get verbal feedback on your child’s day and that you have secure access online to your child’s individual e-learning journal.
You and your child can use free ‘taster sessions’ to help you both settle in to the surroundings.
Included in the cost of the childcare are meals during the day. These meals are ‘homemade’ and full of nutrition to give your child the best possible start.
In pre-school your child is prepared for transition to the local schools. In order to develop your child, literacy and numeracy are embedded into all that we do.
