In Good Hands
My name is Zoe and I have been working in childcare for the past 4 years. I enjoy coming to work each day to see the children develop and achieve something new each day.
Our facility will provide appropriate areas for a range of needs including a food preparation/dining area, a quiet area, play area inside and out and a secure outdoor play space accessible freely to the children.
We offer various play sessions, parent and carer days and provide a range of opportunities for children, carers and professionals to explore the setting and their wider communities through visits, activities and events
We can offer extended services should this be required by service users. Contact us for more information.
Snacks and drinks will be available and this will be in line with our healthy eating policy, and suit your child’s dietary needs and preferences, however ‘treats’ which may be offered will be low fat and no sugar where applicable. The setting aims to deliver the RCT Pre-school Health and Sustainability project.
The project helps to identify, develop and communicate a positive ethos which promotes respect towards all, and a positive approach to health, the environment and the community and ensures that all children have the opportunity to benefit from stimulating challenges and the right to play.
