OUR CHILDCARE TEAM
Every one of our nursery staff are trained to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage with a deep passion for education, with key workers assigned to bring out the best in every child.
Our aim is to provide a unique children's nursery experience in a community setting, spending more of our time and focus on our children and their parents.
Nursery Village believes in the concept of “the unique child”. Our staff have all been
hand-picked for their previous working experiences and knowledge, comprising many elements from several different learning styles, to provide your child with the best care.
A varied range of activities are offered, some of which are pre-planned, and others follow the child’s individual interests. The equipment and resources are easily accessible, can be independently chosen, becoming supported experiences when needed.
The Unique Child
We follow a holistic approach to the development of your child. The ‘whole child’ is looked after, with emphasis on their well being and belonging, with activities including rest, relaxation or yoga, the development of feelings, friendships and emotional intelligence.
All staff are respectful of the child. We acknowledge that they have power over their own body and will seek the child’s permission before attending to their personal needs. All staff will speak to the children, listen to what they say, take their views seriously and work with them collaboratively when deciding how to best support their needs. We strongly believe in keeping every child safe.
We ensure that every child is able to develop an on-going relationship of trust with those helping them. Each child is assigned a Key Worker to ensure parental opportunities for daily verbal dialogue to communicate personal care preferences, progress and interests.
