Our provision at Heathfields Infant Academy is set to begin operating in September 2020 in the school building.
We register children from their second birthday and accept both the thirty hour and fifteen-hour funding, in addition to sessions for parents who wish to pay.
This lovely, welcoming setting which accommodates 24 children, has its own entrance and outdoor area and is completely self-contained.
In Our Pride Our Joy nurseries we follow a 'child initiated' curriculum which enables children to follow their own interests and learn through quality play, whilst being supported by qualified and experienced staff. Staff are trained to observe the children and look for 'teachable moments' in which to intervene and support the child to their next steps.
We have full access to the outdoor areas throughout the sessions and in all weathers, so children can choose their preferred area to learn within a well thought out, enabling environment.
Parents are kept informed of their child's progress through secure online accounts which they can read, enjoy and add to so that they can play a part in the 'learning journey' their child travels along whilst with us.
Our wrap around care is provided within the security of the school building. Qualified staff plan a variety of activities for the children to participate in ranging from baking and craft, to team building challenges and sports.
Our breakfast club opens at 7:30 am and offers a choice of healthy breakfast options every day.
After school, the children are registered and offered fruit and a drink before joining in with the fun and games with their friends. Club starts at 3:00 pm and operates until 6:00 pm where, the catering team provide a snack for those children staying late.
