HIGH ADULT RATIOS

We pride ourselves on maintaining a 1:4 (one adult: 4 children) ratio for children 3 years and above. For children under 3 we maintain a 1:3 ratio. This is to enable the children and staff to get to know one another so we can recognise when children need challenging or a bit more help with their learning.

ONLINE LEARNING JOURNEYS

We have online learning journeys available via a mobile app, Tapestry, which provides live nursery updates for parents. Throughout the week you will be receive email alerts notifying you an observation has been completed on your child. This will include a description of the activity your child has taken part in and which of the 7 areas of learning this activity was linked to and which age bracket. Sometimes the observation will also include photos and videos of your child during their day at nursery.

The added benefit of Tapestry is that if anything happens at home, such as your child reaching a developmental milestone or taking a trip somewhere. You can upload photos and descriptions to share with your child’s key worker so they can tell us about it at nursery. Tapestry is completely secure and each child can have up to 3 users associated with their account. All you need to do is complete your email address when completing your child’s reservation paperwork and we will send you a secure link that will enable you to set up your account.

OUTINGS

We love making the most of what our local environment has to offer and taking the children out and about. Upon your child commencing with us, you will be required to fill in some basic information about your child, one of which consists of permissions or taking your child out.

Children frequently take trips to the beach, park, singing lessons at the library and even the softplay. All of our trips are planned in line with the EYFS Curriculum in order to provide an opportunity to observe your child achieving a developmental step. You may even have spotted us around Clacton in our carts! These are ideal for the children to sit in and save tired little legs when going out or coming back from an outing.

All of our outings are included at no additional cost to parents.
