Before your child starts at nursery you will be invited to come in for induction visits. We believe these visits are extremely important and we encourage you to visit as often as you wish. This gives you the opportunity to meet all the staff, spend time within the room and ask any questions you may have. The room supervisor will introduce you to your child's key person during these visits and she will spend time with you and your child getting to know your needs.
Your child's key person is primarily responsible for ensuring your child's needs are met throughout the day whilst planning activities that stimulate and interest your child. They will spend time settling your child into nursery life helping them to become familiar with the setting and to feel confident and safe within it.
Fully equipped room with equipment and resources specially chosen to encourage the children's independence. Toys and equipment are all at child level enabling the children to explore their environment and choose what they wish to play with.
The children have a safe secure outdoor play area which is accessed directly from the room. This provides an opportunity for the children to easily access the outdoor area and get fresh air daily.
The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage which promotes positive relationships in a stimulating environment. Daily activities take place within the room for all children and your child's key person plans individual activities for your child after observing them and finding out their interests. The room and your child's planning is displayed on the wall in each room for you to view at anytime.
Your child's key person will keep a development profile which is updated monthly. This will contain information on the progress your child is making at nursery including observations and photos. You are welcome to view this file at anytime.
Independence is promoted in this room, children begin to feed themselves and have are encouraged to recognise their own personal needs.
Daily activities include messy play, baking, painting, water and sand and sensory play.
If you are applying for a Corinthian nursery school place you should do this in the term your child turns 2, please ask for advice on this matter if you are unsure on the procedure.
