Our Spring newsletter is here...
There are three play rooms and the children are divided by age groups
Green Room - 10 months to 18 months (15 children)
Red Room - 24 months to 36 months (16 children)
Blue Room - 3 to school age (24 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.
The Green Room can take 15 children age 10 months to 2 years, the ratio is 1 adult to 3 children. This room has a nappy change room and milk kitchen accessible from within the room itself. The room has a movable low level partition fence to create an area for the non-mobile under 1 age group.
Under 1’s sleep in cots and the staff work to each child’s individual routine.
Once the children reach 1 year old their day tends to run with the room routine and the children sleep on soft bed mats after lunch time.
The Red Room can take 16 children age 2 to 3 years, the ratio is 1 adult to 4 children.
The room has an outdoor free flow area attached and they share the nappy change area and bathroom with the Blue room. The children also sleep on bed mats after lunch in this age group and are often learning to use the potty during their time in this room.
The Blue Room can take 24 children aged 3 years until 31st August following the 4th birthday, the ratio is 1 adult to 8 children. This room also has an outdoor free flow area attached and have easy access to the adjoined bathroom giving the children an important feeling of independence during hand washing etc. with the advantage of adults close at hand to help where needed. If the children need some quiet time to rest and relax they can enjoy the quiet area where they can look at books or talk to their friends.
The most positive experiences for M were building a strong relationship with her key worker and becoming more confident and independent.
For me, it has been the consistency of staff and always being kept informed.
Louise - can't thank Louise enough for all her help, from the moment I rang Little Dragons in tears looking for a replacement nursery, Louise has been absolutely amazing in making every step of the application/induction/viewing a breeze. She is not only amazing at the admin side but is always so friendly and caring towards all the children. M will miss her LOU-LOU. Kirsty - the most caring person and patient key worker I have come across, M can be a handful, demanding but Kirsty has worked with us to improve M's behaviour. She has seen the potential and the ability M has to succeed and has helped her develop those skills. Thank you for all you have done Kirsty x
I always speak highly of Little Dragons and my friends' son will be starting in September.
