Our Chicks area provides a warm, nurturing environment where each baby’s emotional, social and sensory development is encouraged in a holistic manner.
To assist with ensuring that each child feels happy and secure within the nursery we have a Key Worker scheme to help children settle in; to ensure continuity of care and to facilitate the partnership with parents and carers. Whilst the Key Worker will be principally responsible for the care of your child in their Key Worker Group all other members of staff assigned to the room will be involved in the day to day care of your child and will be able to provide any information required by you or carers.
We offer a daily experiences which are based on the framework, “Scottish pre-birth to 3 guidelines”. These experiences are sufficiently flexible to take into account each child’s individual needs and requirements. A range of age specific books and toys are provided as well as a selection of natural materials to stimulate and entertain each child. Weather permitting the Chicks are taken outdoors to the garden or on walks to local parks.
Your child’s daily experiences of feeding, playing and sleeping are written down on our daily information sheet which are given to you on collection allowing you to be fully informed of their progress.
