About Whitchurch Pre-School Nursery (Shropshire) Ltd.

Whitchurch Pre-school nursery is divided into different age ranges, to accommodate the diverse stages of development and we provide a variety of activities and equipment to meet those needs.

We also have a spacious outdoor play area because we feel that outdoor play and learning is essential to early year's development.

We are registered with Ofsted and our unique reference number is EY416501. In April 2016 we received a Grading of good in our Ofsted Inspection, a copy of the report can be viewed by visiting www.ofsted.gov.uk

If you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to ask the management team in the office.

Absence

Please abide by our sick child policy to reduce risk of infection throughout the nursery, and if your child is taken ill during the day you will be contacted.

If there is an emergency, the Nursery Manager or Deputy reserves the right to seek medical treatment.

Personal Belongings

We recommend that you send your child in "comfortable" clothes, we offer messy play & creative activities so please avoid "best" clothes.

What do the parents/carers provide?

  • We ask parents to provide at least one spare set of clothes, in case of unfortunate messy incidents due to water play/soiled clothing, etc.
  • Label all belongings to avoid confusion or loss.
  • Provide a sun hat & sun cream for those lovely hot summers we have.
  • Wellington boots so we can make the most of outdoors in the winter.
  • Formula milk - you are more than welcome to bring in a carton of powder as we are able make up your child's milk feeds (please ensure staff are informed about the quantity required).
  • Barrier cream for sore bottoms.
  • Please provide your own nappies.

We ask children not to bring toys/snacks/sweets from home as this causes conflict and toys may get lost or broken.

  • When you initially book a place with us, we require a £25 non-refundable booking fee to secure the childcare place (exc. creche/funded only children).
  • Fees are reviewed annually.
  • You will not be charged for Bank Holidays as the nursery closes, however we are open between Christmas and new year which will be chargeable.
  • All terms and conditions are stated in the Parent Pack, which you will receive when you visit the nursery.

Keeping you involved

Role of the Key person
When your child starts with us, they will be assigned a "keyperson", which means that one of our practitioners in your child's room will now be the main familiar carer to your child. They will be the "key" person to plan & create experiences and opportunities for them alongside observing your child's learning journey whilst in our care. Each child's progression is recorded in a developmental summary record which is carried out throughout the nursery and you take them with you to your child's new school/setting when he/she leaves.

The nursery holds a parent/carer evening twice annually to give parents an opportunity to spend time with the key person and talk about your child's development, it's also a great way for us to learn more about your child when they are at home.

Each Child under 2 years old will receive a daily diary, which our practitioners complete during each session to record important information about your child (soiled nappies/mealtimes). We will also include details of your child's activities throughout the session and their disposition with any further relevant comments to give parent/carers as much information about their child's day as possible. We also ensure all staff spend time with parents/carers to personally discuss the session with them.

Children over 2 years of age will receive a daily feedback sheet with similar information as the under 2's, with more focus on the daily activities/current topic/suggested activities you can carry out at home.
