Environment and Support
The Beeches Day Nursery is committed to providing high quality childcare in an environment which is safe, secure, happy, healthy and stimulating.
We believe that all children require the best start in life and the best care. At The Beeches we aim to provide an environment that is warm, caring, friendly and supportive.
Our child-centred approach encourages children to develop their natural creativity, individuality and self-confidence in secure surroundings.
Children need to feel a sense of security and belonging when they are away from their parents. We strive to ensure that all children feel happy, relaxed and safe, and encourage them to feel confident in co-operating and developing good relationships with the adults caring for them and with the other children.
We have a wide range of appropriate learning materials and stimulating, high quality toys and activities, both indoors and outdoors. Children are provided with a varied, healthy diet, fresh air, exercise, rest and play, all contributing positively to their physical, emotional and educational development. Surrounded by their peers, they can develop at their own pace, play a full part in activities devised for their age, and enthusiastically learn new skills.
Our emphasis is on providing exceptional care whilst supporting each child individually all within an organisation that complies with the highest ethical standards and statutory guidance. We want to work in partnership with parents to provide a level of care that meets high standards.Top
