At Seeros Day Care Nursery we take into consideration each child's individual needs.
Our programmes are structured around the Early years foundation stage as a framework that provides the assurance that every child gets best possible start in life and support to fulfill their potential. A child's experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundations for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
There are three groups within the nursery; each group has its own learning plan which caters for the individual needs and abilities and talents as they grow up. There are three groups within the nursery; each group has its own learning plan which caters for the individual needs and abilities dependent on the child's age.
Early Years Foundation Stage
Working alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage (Birth to 5 years)
The programme is divided into four key areas;
- A unique child
- Positive relationships
- Enabling environments
- Learning and development
Long term, monthly and weekly planning is displayed in each room and communicated with parents in order to enable them to carry out any additional activities at home.
Gradual Admission System
The aim of the gradual admission programme is to introduce your child and yourself to the nursery and the staff caring for your child whilst he/she is in our care.
We request that parents or carers accompany their child for three separate visits in order to help the child settle into the nursery as stress free as possible. Some children or parents/carers may feel more comfortable with having more than three sessions this can easily be arranged.
A Suggested Programme
- Day 1: Parent/carer and child attended for 30mins to view the room that the child be in and meet the members of staff that will be working with the child.
- Day 2: Child attends the nursery for a 1 hour session without the parent.
- Day 3: Child attends the nursery for a 1 hour 30 minutes over a mealtime without parent/carer.
Please note that this is just a suggested programme some parents/carers do not feel the need to phase their child in and other children require more time. We will be happy to discuss any alternative arrangements where required.
We are fully aware of the anxiety that parents and carers may have when leaving their child for the first time. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like about the nursery and staff as and when you require.
