Hello and welcome to Central Children's Centre Day Care and Pre School Provider. We opened our new purpose built nursery / pre school in September 2006.
Within the nursery we have one large bright, spacious, base room for children from birth to 5 years, with children under two years having their own separate play area and sleep area. Our room is fun, bright and attractive to children, with areas for active play, eating, sleeping and quiet times.
Every day in Nursery is carefully planned to ensure your child receives the best learning opportunities in a safe, fun and caring environment whilst ensuring we meet the individual social, physical and emotional needs of each child. All equipment used is of a high quality and is especially designed and chosen for the benefit and stimulation of the children.
Within the setting we are happy to offer 'settling in sessions' where you and your child are welcome to attend nursery and to build up a relationship with the staff before deciding to leave your child.
Each child is allocated a Key Worker upon registration, and we ensure that you are given every opportunity to talk to your child's Key Worker and other Nursery staff. Good communications between staff and parents is vital, and you will be provided with written details on your child's progress on a weekly basis. Nursery staff will always be available to discuss your child's progress as and when requested. Parents' evenings are held regularly, which give you and your child's Key Worker the opportunity to discuss your child's progress, needs and development.
We use online educational software, Tapestry, to create individual learning journeys for your child. By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your child’s observations, photographs and even video from their time at Nursery. You will even receive an email telling you when a new observation or piece of work is available for you to view. This will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress closely and you can reflect upon their achievements with your child. For those of you who do not have access to a computer we can give access to your child’s journey on line at nursery or print off a version for you.
We receive nursery education vouchers for 3 and 4 year olds for 38 weeks per year for a maximum of 15 hours per week which can be flexible to suit individual needs, but no more than 13 hours can be taken over 2 days and 15 hours need to be taken over a minimum of 3 days. We can also offer 15 hours per week funding for eligible two year olds which can be applied for using the following link 2 Year Funding Application
Monthly newsletters are produced for parents, which detail Nursery activities and updates, general information, updates on the Nursery staff team and any other information which you as a parent should be aware of.
The Nursery has a facebook page which is available for parents to access to keep up to date with all nursery news, search Central Children Centre on facebook to join.
Our priority in the Nursery/Pre School is to work in partnership with a child's Parent/Carer, and we welcome visits from families to discuss their individual needs. We are here to serve you as a community and we are willing to help you in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to pop in and have a chat.
