Waltham Pre-School Nursery
Our nursery provides the highest standards of care and education and has been rated 'Good' by Ofsted. We continually strive to deliver the best possible care and environment for your child. We have highly qualified staff caring for your children, CCTV on the door entry and monitoring the sleep area ensuring your child is safe and protected at all times.
The nursery caters for children aged six weeks to two years, with dedicated areas supporting babies to reach their first milestones.
There are two specialist play areas, furnished with high quality equipment supplied by Community Playthings, a sleep area, a changing room and a laundry.The room has an adjacent secure outdoor play area allowing free flow play. The children also have access to a larger sensory garden encouraging exploratory play and vegetable plots where we grow our own vegetables.
Taster sessions are offered to encourage a smooth introduction to the nursery. To promote children’s sense of feeling safe and secure each child will have their own keyperson who will build close relationships with both the children and parent / carers. The keyperson will plan appropriate activities for the children to support their early development in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Children learn best when they are having fun and activities are planned to meet individual needs. Practitioners provide a range of rich experiences that both stimulate and challenge children to reach their full potential. Activities provided are a balance of structured and child let play.
Parent / carers are kept fully informed of their child’s day through a diary and an online assessment, Tapestry, which promotes parental participation.
The nursery is open all year round with the exception of bank holidays and Christmas when we are closed for two weeks. Two free weeks are offered for annual holidays.
These are the sessions available:
7.30am – 6.00pm - £47.50 (inc breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks)
7.30am – 1.00pm - £26 (inc breakfast, lunch and snack)
1.00pm – 6.00pm - £24 (inc tea and snacks)
A good diet is particularly important for young children as early food experiences will impact on eating patterns and habits in their adult life.
Waltham Pre-School has a dedicated cook who prepares freshly cooked meals. Our meat is sourced from Browns and our fish is fresh from a local fish monger. Fresh fruit and vegetables are provided daily.
