Every child deserves the very best possible start in life, we at Hoar Cross Day Nursery aim to support your child in all aspects of care, learning and development. These experiences play a major part and impact on your child's future life choices and opportunities.

It is a child's own right to have a secure, safe and happy childhood. We aim to provide a solid foundation for your child to explore and follow their interests, learn through play, make friends and become confident and safeguard them from harm.

When parents and carers choose to use a private day care setting, they want to know that provision will keep their children safe, happy and stimulated.

Children are observed during their play by our team of dedicated staff members, these observations are used by your child's key worker to extend their interests and develop learning opportunities, this takes place through continuous provision of toys, equipment and play. Practitioners plan adult focused and adult led activities which can initiate extended play within their interest or extend learning within a new topic area. From the use of observations, one to one sessions and group activities, your child's key worker can identify their stage of development and plan their next steps.

Adult led activities are a way of exploring new topics and experiences that help your child to learn and access a wide range of information. Topics provide a long term basis of subjects such as, Mini beasts,People who help us, Festivals and Books.

children are encouraged to show their feelings and understand that their feelings count, thinking about others around them and know that it is ok to ask for help.
