We were established in 1973 and are
registered under the Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law, 2002, to
provide care and education for up to 52 children. We can care
for children from age 2 to school age.
Our aim is to provide a real foundation for the future and
encourage learning for each child in our care. We maintain a
warm, friendly, stimulating and safe environment where children are
encouraged to reach their full potential with the support of our
dedicated, professional teams. Children are treated with respect
and are encouraged to have respect for others.
Our Qualifications & Policies
Our experienced and professional staff are fully qualified in
child care and education and undertake continuous professional
development throughout the year. We are accredited in Baby
Effective Early Learning ('BEEL'), and use the Under 3's Quality
framework for the children under three years. We are
accredited in Effective Early Learning ('EEL') and use the
Pre-School Quality framework for children age 3 to 5 years.
The staffing ratios are as follows:
Over 3 years - 1 adult per 8 children
2-3 years - 1 adult per 4 children
We comply with the recommendations of the Environmental Health
Department - a booklet is kept at the Nursery should parents
or guardians wish to read it on request.
When a child begins at our Nursery we encourage parents and
guardians to stay with the child as the period of separation is
slowly lengthened until your child is settled and
confident. The time needed for adjustment will vary from child
to child. Each child will have a dedicated group and
'keyworker' for the entire stay at the Nursery. Keyworkers and
parents are encouraged to develop a mutually supportive
relationship to ensure continuity of care from home to the
Nursery. The development of a child is recorded by staff in
learning journeys, which the parent or guardian are welcome to read
and contribute to at any time.
A wide range of activities and experiences are provided to help
the children to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and
socially, in line with current curriculum
recommendations. Outings are an important part of nursery life
and are arranged as often as possible. We have a minibus,
which is equipped with child safety seats and full
insurance. We also use other forms of transport such as the
local bus and Le Petit Train and sometimes go for walks.
