Our preschool has a Christian ethos to provide a caring environment and to nurture strong moral values including kindness, sharing and tolerance.
We have a very mature staff team with an average age of 45 years old.
We are privileged to be part of Bowdon Parish community; we have a strong and supportive relationship with our local churches.
We exceed Ofsted regulation on our staff ratios both with the number of qualified staff and the number of staff to guide purposeful play.
We use the great outdoors whenever we can, rain or shine.
We understand childrens’ desire to be active. We have ample space for every child to be active both inside and outside with our large slide, balance boards and games equipment. The garden is ours to use for each and every hour of our sessions, there is no turn taking or waiting, we use free flow as much as we can to allow those children who want the sky as their roof!
FLEXIBLE SETTLING-IN STAGE
The first few days at preschool can be a challenge for children and parents, so we try to go the extra mile to help your child settle in quickly.
We offer complimentary home visits to allow your child to get to know us a little on their terms in their home.
Our preschool manager will create an individual settling-in plan based on both yours and your child's needs.
We give you our ‘happiness pledge’ – if within the first six weeks you feel that your child hasn’t settled, then you won’t have to give notice.
Please come and meet our team, see how we care and educate children first-hand through play. You’ll know which nursery is right for you immediately when you find it, it will feel comfortable and give you peace of mind. You can choose to bring your little one with you, or come for a second visit with them.
Our curriculm and resources are planned by our teaching staff to teach, enthuse and create opportunites for fun. Each day activities are planned for both indoor and outdoor play.
Every day 2 of our five staff are qualified teachers. 50% of our staff team are graduates or post graduates.
On a typical day will achieve a staff ratio of one adult to five for three and four years olds and 1:3 for two year olds.
We exceed Ofsted regulation on our staff ratios both with the number of qualified staff and the number of staff to guide purposeful play. We exceed all statutory training requirements with every aspect.
We support children with special educational needs and disability (SEND), please contact us to discuss how we can support your child's needs. More information is on Trafford Council's website: http://www.trafforddirectory.co.uk/kb5/trafford/fsd/localoffer.page
