Day nursery

Coronavirus status: OPEN
Coronavirus status: OPEN

Curious Explorers Day Nursery Fleet is located in the heart of Fleet, very close to the high street.

The nursery cares for children from 3 months old up to 5 years old.

It is a lovely setting with light rooms that all has  access to our large garden where children can play and grow their own fruit and vegetables.

All of the children have the chance to move around the nursery's five rooms to learn new things in a safe and fun way.

Staff ensure children's social, personal and communication skills are developed via the nursery's many fun activities and child-led play opportunities.

The nursery has highly qualified, caring staff, looking after children between the ages of birth and five years of age.

All children are able to develop their full potential at their own pace.

Children can eat healthy, well-balanced and delicious food prepared at the nursery.

An online learning journal tracks each child’s progress and can be accessed by parents and carers.

An online care journal keeps you updated about your child's care through out the day.

Description

We observe children very closely on a daily basis.

If there are symptoms or signs that causes concern we will address it firstly with the parent/s.

We will then work alongside the parents to see if we can manage the concern

Once we have gathered enough information we will ask for support from outside agencies and the local authority.

If a parent thinks their child may have special educational needs they should talk to the manager or key carer who will then organise a meeting with the SENCO who will follow our procedure as stated above.

We use the local authority and outside agencies to support our planning for children with additional needs.

How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?

We use Tapestry to track children on the 7 learning areas according to the EYFS.

In some cases we use an Ann Locke form to identify the gaps more clearly.

The setting has ground floor access to our Toddler and Pre-school Rooms without any obstructions.

How will the setting/school/college prepare and support my child/young person to join the setting/school/college or the next stage of education and life?

We support all children in the School Readiness process.

We support parents in applying for Special Educational Schools and organise meetings with the teachers of their preferred school to ensure a smooth transition.

How are the setting's/school's/college's resources allocated and matched to children's/young people's special educational needs?

Resources are allocated on a needs basis, in conjunction with the local authority's financial support.

How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child/young person will receive?

Through the support of the Local Authority we are able to access additional funding to ensure children are allocated additional support during their time with us.

How are parents involved in the setting/school/college? How can I be involved?

Parents are very involved in our setting.

All parents have the opportunity to meet with their child's key worker and any other staff member as much as they require too.

We have three parent evenings a year however more are always available.
