About us

Introduction

ClimbingWe are open Mondays to Fridays and can care for up to 24 children per morning. 

We maintain a ratio of no more than six children to one adult.

Each session includes time for the children to participate in free play and child led (adult supervised) activities, shared stories, singing, dancing etc and outside play.

Each morning we provide a choice of healthy snacks accompanied by a drink of milk or water at our Snack bar which is available throughout the session. Children have access to fresh water throughout the session to keep their systems hydrated during their busy morning.

Our Aims

We offer education and care for children aged 2 years 6 months until school age.

  • To provide a happy, safe, caring and creative environment to enable every child to discover their full potential.
  • To assist your child to develop their social, intellectual, cognitive, physical and emotional abilities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
  • To work in partnership with parents, carers and other settings and agencies to ensure every child’s needs are being met.
