Our Rooms

Daisy room

Daisy room provides 6 spaces a session for children aged from 10 months to 2 years old and has been created to be a soft warm setting where our babies and youngest children can explore a range of sensory and holistic activities aimed to develop their personal, social and emotional development as well as their physical and language development. Staff are well experienced to help children form strong attachments with their key person to ensure they feel safe and settled whilst they are away from home. In daisy Room the ethos is simply to care for your child in an environment which will nurture their physical, emotional and mental well-being. Our team of qualified and experienced staff understand how to support your child’s needs, ensuring they feel safe and secure in a stimulating environment. The room has access to its own outdoor area and re have recently purchased a multi seat buggy to take the children out and about.

Daisy room is run by Charmaine Murray who has been with the setting for the past 20 years and has extensive experience working with children and babies. She is supported by Laura Dobbs, Martina Mountney and Sarah Marchant. Laura has her level 3 in childcare, Martina has a level 2 and is working towards her level 3. Sarah is a new member of the team and is working towards her level 2.

Green room

Green room is for our younger two-year olds. Like the baby room it provides warm and cosy spaces with areas that promote and support children playing together to develop their friendships and language skills. We have 12 spaces per session in here and operate on a one to four ratio. It has a lovely role play corner, cosy snuggle areas with lots of books, soft toys and spaces to relax with friends. There is a large area for creative activities and plenty of opportunities for children to explore messy play, make marks and develop their self-care skills. The staff take children outside throughout the session and they have a toilet area adjoined to the room to support and promote their toileting.

We have a team of five staff, led by Sian Walker and supported by Jenny Tennant, Nicci Flude, Ryan Murray and Martina Mountney. Sian has been with the setting for around twelve years and has a level three qualification in childcare, Nicci has been with us for 15 years and has a level 3 childcare qualification, Jen 6 years also with a level 3, Martina 3 years and is working towards her level 3. Ryan has recently returned to the setting and is commencing his level 3.

Blue room

Blue room is for children aged around two and a half to three years old. It is one of our larger rooms and therefore accommodates around 20 children. The children in here have free flow access to the outdoor areas supported by a four team of staff. Blue room continues to build on the same environment as the younger rooms. The layout is separated by furniture to create spaces to explore through different resources that are all provided to meet their individual needs and interests. There are cosy areas where the children can relax and busy areas where they can construct and play in larger groups. Staff skilfully support children’s play throughout the room helping to stretch their learning in the moment when they are most engaged and ready to learn.

Blue room is run by Alayne Standinger who has a level 3 and 4 qualification in early years and has worked at the setting for 24 years as a supervisor/room lead/safeguarding officer. Her vast experience and qualifications have enabled her to develop a strong understanding of all aspects of caring for children and therefore children make excellent progress whilst in her care. Alayne is supported by Ewa Kaminska, Cheryl George and Rose Matthews. Cheryl and Ewa have level 3’s and Rose is a qualified Teacher and supports the younger children with their transition to School.

Yellow room

Yellow room is for our older Preschool children, children normally transfer to this room for the year running up to when they are due to start School. It is a larger room like blue room and is set out with different areas for children to explore and discover with access to the outdoors. Yellow room is run by Savanna Holm who has been with the setting for 6 years, Savanna has a level 3 qualification. She is supported by Emma Flynn, Donna Rosser and Kim Cornell all of whom have their level 3’s and have been at the setting for many years. All of the staff in yellow are very experienced and are well placed to support children to become ready for their transition to School.

Key persons

Each child is assigned their own Key Person to care for their individual needs, as well as a ‘Buddy’ in times when their Key Person is not available. On your first visit to our setting, you will be able to meet your Key Person and talk together about your child as well as the ins and outs of our setting. We believe strongly that parents are the most important educator and we will work together to ensure your child’s learning and developmental needs are met.

Settling in

Every child is unique, and we understand that some children take longer to settle into pre-school than others. For many children, pre-school and nursery is a child’s first venture alone into the world and we want both you and your child to feel confident and happy. We advise parents to do at least two settling in sessions either one or two hours, which are free of charge. We are happy to extend the settling in process depending on how well your child manages this transition.
