There are four play rooms and the children are divided by age groups. Each room has a room leader that leads a team of qualified nursery staff.
Poppy Room (10 months - 18 months)
This room can hold a maximum of 9 children, on a ratio of 1 staff member to 3 children.
Daisy Room (18 months - 2 years)
This room can hold 12 children on a ratio of 1 staff member to 3 children.
Buttercup Room (2 - 3 years)
This room can hold 18 children on a ratio of 1 staff member to 4 children.
Bluebell Room (3 years - until 31st August following the 4th birthday)
This room can hold 24 children on a ratio of 1 staff member to 8 children.
It is important to note that the nursery registration is flexible and the age groups for the rooms can be adapted to meet both the needs of the children and the demands of the nursery. Parents/guardians will always be consulted before their child moves rooms.
Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery strictly adheres to the adult / child ratios as stipulated by Ofsted.
The nursery staff will follow the advice and guidance offered by parents in ensuring that their child settles into the nursery. The nursery uses routines for such functions as meal times etc. while at the same time allowing the children to explore their surrounding and initiate their own activities whilst being guided by the staff. The Early Years Foundation Stage places a key emphasis on children learning through play which encourages creative thinking and embraces individual learning styles.
The children are leaving the nursery as the family are moving abroad permanently.
The positives for our children - the staff, the interaction with all the carers and management. The enthusiasm of management and the attention to detail of both children and knowing them so well.
The positives for us - seeing all the children at play in the gardens which are child friendly.
We feel that they nursery represents value for money. Whilst we were not subject to any of the NHS discounts, the costs we paid were very competitive.
We would recommend the nursery, as they say on the Talent Shows, “You have 4 yes’s”!!!
From the first visit to Kiddies, Cabin when selecting a nursery, we felt that it was the staff which set apart the KC from the other nurseries which we looked at. The enthusiasm and interaction with both children and parents was a positive experience and an environment that we were comfortable to leave both children in.
Three years on and we have not been disappointed with the selection. The facilities are purpose built and child friendly with two outdoor areas which can be used most of the year. We have no hesitation with recommending Kiddies' Cabin.
