Settles & Home Visits
Ensuring that every child is well settled is our main priority. We ask families to begin the settling in period two weeks before their start date, gradually lengthening the amount of time a child is left with our lovely staff team and providing plenty of time to overcome any stress or anxiety. We also offer home visits and are flexible in our approach to settling in to accommodate every child and take special care to discuss home routines with parents.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. Our children love getting involved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment
We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There's always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our special dress ups.
Our E-Learning Journals allow you to see your child’s activities at nursery with the click of a button. Whether you are out shopping or at your desk at work, you can securely login to your child’s Learning Journal and see what they are getting up to while they are in our nursery. You will be notified when a new observation is uploaded and can let us know what you think through our innovative feedback system.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. Our current nominated fundraising organisations are Children in Need and Comic Relief.
Our nursery encourages children to celebrate festivals throughout the year. This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating various world religious festivals, food tasting from different countries, and dressing up in the national outfits of their friends.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events.
We offer families the choice of purchasing a nursery uniform. These optional uniforms offer a smart and practical clothing choice for play at nursery.
We accept your courier deliveries to make things that little bit easier for busy parents.
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with monthly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our social media accounts; Kidsplay Facebook, Bertram Group Instagram and Bertram Group Twitter.
