Our Nursery Facilities

Our Yellow Room

Child Care Developed With Parents Inmind

 

The staff always follow parents’ preferences and the baby’s established routine is followed on joining the nursery, wherever possible. Once your baby is mobile and ready to move up to the Toddlers group, he or she will gradually be introduced to the new Key Person and the other members of the group.

6 Weeks to Mobility

 

Our baby rooms cater for children from the age of 6 weeks until they are confidently mobile.

 

Once your little one is actively up and about with confidence and ready to move on, Our Orange Room would be their next stop.

 

Our Yellow Room has seperate access to a changing facilities, Milk Room and a connected sleep room.

 

We work on maximum 3:1 children to staff ratio with the continuity of staff being a priority.

 

Our rooms are bright, cheerful and stimulating which offers a caring and loving environment. The emphasis is very much on providing a home from home care with lots of play, love and cuddles.

 

Our babies’ development is monitored at regular intervals, and activities are planned to promote the next milestone along the way, be it learning to sit unsupported, scribbling with a crayon or saying that first word. The babies spend time every day cuddling up on a lap with a picture or storybook to develop a close bond with the staff, and an early love of books.

 

Exploring different enviroments is important as We aim to take our babies out for a walk at least twice a week weather permitting, either to the local park or the river to feed the ducks.

 

We keep a daily record sheet, which we complete and send home and we ask parents to inform us in the morning of any changes to their baby’s routine. This ensures that there is continuity of care between home and the nursery, and no important information is forgotten when the baby is handed over.

 

 

Mobility to 2 years

 

Our Orange Room cater for children that are confidently mobile and up to the age of 2 years .

.

Orange Room has access to changing facilities and a sleep room.

 

We work on maximum 3:1 children to staff ratio with the continuity of staff being a priority.

 

Our rooms are bright, cheerful and stimulating which offers a caring and loving environment. The emphasis is very much on providing a home from home care with lots of play, love and cuddles.

 

Our Orange Room's development is monitored at regular intervals, and activities are planned to promote the next milestone along the way, be it learning to Socialise with other children, to develop mark making skills (painting, glueing and sticking, holding a crayon etc) and to explore their imagination .

The babies spend time every day cuddling up on a lap with a picture or storybook to develop a close bond with the staff, and an early love of books.

 

Language development is very important for this age group. The babies are absorbing all of the knowledge they will need later when they begin to talk themselves. They not only learn the names of objects and actions, they learn about taking turns in conversation, sentence structure, expression and humour. It is vital that babies receive sufficient one to one conversation time to ensure that their language skills are fully developed.

 

At  A Bright Start Nursery Rumney Ltd  we make sure that each baby is given plenty of one to one conversation and is encouraged to respond and interact with the staff.

 

Physical and messy play are also important for babies. We aim to take our babies out for a walk at a minunum of twice a week weather permitting, either to the local park or the river to feed the ducks.

 

We have a range of outdoor play equipment to develop a wide variety of physical skills once the babies become more mobile. The babies have access to sand and water play equipment and start to discover the joy of painting and crayoning.We keep a daily record sheet, which we complete and send home and we ask parents to inform us in the morning of any changes to the baby’s routine. This ensures that there is continuity of care between home and the nursery, and no important information is forgotten when the baby is handed over.

 

Our Orange Room

Child Care With Parents In Mind

The staff always follow parents’ preferences, wherever possible.

Once your baby is mobile and ready to move up to the Red Room, he or she will gradually be introduced to the new Key Person and the other members of the group

Our Red Room

Child Care With Parents In Mind

 

The staff always follow parents’ preferences, wherever possible.

Once your child has graduated from Red Room he/ she will take their next step and enter our Pre - School room, Which is our Green Room, 

Your pride and joys will gradually be introduced to the new Key Person and the other members of the group

2 – 3 year olds

 

The Red Room accommodates our two and rising 3 year old. We provide activities, which are designed specifically at the developmental stage of each child .

 

The Toddlers follow the Birth to Three Matters with particular emphasis on language development with the Foundation Phrase Stage being introduced. A wide variety of fun activities are carried out daily, which are designed to develop all aspects of the children’s development, encourage imagination, creativity and an enquiring mind.

The Toddler's Room has access to areas for messy play, quiet activities, floor play and imaginative play. The home corner is changed monthly to our set themes such as a shop, airport, hospital, post office, home, pirate ship etc.

 

Our children continue to develop their knowledge of shape, colour, number and phonic letter sounds and their vocabulary is extended to enable simple conversations about their environment, family, friends and activities.

 

The children are usually completing their toilet training and will still want to have an afternoon nap in this group and we provide all of the facilities that they will need.

 

When a child move's up from to the Red Room there is a full hand-over procedure to the next appointed key-worker. 

 Introduction to the Red Room is gradual by spending a few days in there over a period of weeks to get to know the rest of the group.

 

Parents are introduced to the Toddlers Key person so that they can discuss any concerns that they might have.

Our Green Room

3 – 5 year olds

 

Children will enter the pre-school group either on joining the nursery or having moved up from The Red Room, in which case there will be a transitional phase between the two groups as in the Red Room Room.

They have a large room which is fully equipped for all of their activities and again has different areas for different types of play with access to the garden from the classroom.

 

A Foundation for Life…

 

With dedicated preschool areas for 3 to 5 year olds, we plan all activities and learning using the Government’s Foundation Phase guidance which is being introduced across all schools in Wales for 3-7 year olds. We aspire to ensure that every child is equipped for “big school” by placing great emphasis on “learning by doing”.

 

With a ratio of 1 adult to every 8 children, we focus on developing a firm foundation for education – language and listening skills coupled with confidence in mathematics reading and writing. We also foster self-esteem by bringing a positive approach to new experiences with plenty of fun and enjoyment, learning through play.

 

The garden is used as an outdoor classroom for all curriculum activities – a busy day with plenty of fresh air and new challenges really does get children off to the best start in life. Getting ready for big school has never been so much fun!

 

The preschool children have usually outgrown their afternoon naps but if they still need them the facilities are there for them.  

Parents are introduced to the pre schoolies Key-worker so that they can discuss any concerns that they might have.

 

The system of providing information to parents is different from the rest of the room in our nursery Because the children have usually established a routine of eating, drinking, toileting and sleeping already, their parents are more interested in what activities they have been doing during the day.

We therefore don't provide the daily diaries as we do in the other rooms Room but we display the activity programme for the class on the notice board in the green room and also in the foyer. If there have been any problems with a child’s physical well being, if he/ she hasn’t eaten his lunch or has scraped his knee at play time, we will of course discuss it with the parent on collection, or contact a parent earlier if a child is unwell.
