Services

So what do we offer?

We have rooms tailored to specific age groups

We have different rooms that the children progress through as they get older, just like at school. This means we can tailor the care and education to meet the varying needs of children as they grow. We call the rooms by the following names :-


Freddie Fish


Freddie Fish is our baby unit for up to six babies. The ratio is one member of staff to three babies. All the members of staff hold a level 3 Nursery Nurse qualification, with a first aider in the room.
The room is split to provide a separate sleeping room with a viewing window and baby monitor to provide a quiet area to rest. The main room is equipped with suitable toys to provide for early development opportunities. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) focusing on the three prime areas of learning which are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. We plan fun activities such as action songs and rhymes, messy fun play, story time, and discovery play. During the session babies have the opportunity to explore the two outside play areas and the indoor soft playroom.
We pride ourselves in providing freshly liquidised meals and finger food for babies beginning to explore food. We provide all milk required during the day.
We make every effort to maintain your established routine from home. Our number one priority is to ensure that your baby remains happy. A key person will help your baby settle into their new nursery environment and monitor their learning and achievements through observations.
Daily record sheets are given out each session to provide key information about your baby’s time at nursery. This includes milk intake, food intake, nappy changes, sleep times and any special activities that your baby has enjoyed..

We understand the importance of your child being able to settle in quickly

We endeavour to make your child’s introduction to nursery as pleasant as possible. With this in mind, we offer three free one hour sessions, which we suggest are taken on days when your child will attend nursery. Parents / carers may wish to stay with their child to give them an opportunity to become accustomed to the new environment.


Cheeky Monkeys Afterschool Club

Afterschool care is available Monday to Friday whereby a member of staff will meet your child at school and walk back to the nursery. We provide the children with a variety of activities including painting, designing and making, board games, baking and parachute games. We also have 2 outside areas to explore ball games, hoop play, chalk drawing, designing an obstacle course or den making. Please phone to find out which schools we collect from

Holiday Club

Holiday club is available throughout all the school holidays from 8am to 6pm. It is a great way for children to have fun and meet new friends and see old friends again. Our members of staff aim to provide a stimulating variety of activities including outings to local areas such as the library and parks. (All included at no extra cost). Children are encouraged to self-select activities to meet individual needs and interests. Alongside fun interesting activities that are planned such as arts and craft, baking and outside play.
