Improvement Plan


Over the coming months we will be working towards improving the inside and outside areas of the nursery.


The first part of our improvement plan was to move the babies to the upstairs rooms and the Pre-School children to the downstairs rooms. We felt that this would provide the babies with a safe and calm environment away from the front door and office. The move has been successfully completed and by moving the babies upstairs we have been able to provide them with a separate eating, sleeping area and play area.


The benefit to the Pre-School children of being downstairs is that we are able to provide them with a more effective social learning environment. They have free flow movement with the support of our staff to access different learning experiences across three rooms, set out in a way that is better able to support their learning and development through play. The Pre-School children also eat their meals and snacks downstairs and have better access to the outside play area.


The second part of our improvement plan was to move the main staff and managers office up to the third floor, allowing us the opportunity to turn the old office on the ground floor into a room for the shared use of all the children in the nursery with a jungle animal theme. We've also painted the hallway giving it a brighter and fresher feel.


The next part of our improvement plan is to provide a soft grassy play area outside with a sectioned off area for the babies to play safely.
