TWINKLE STARS

Our Twinkle Stars room caters for up to nine children from birth to 2 years old in a warm and nurturing environment. Jenny, Lisa, Elaine, Joanne and Terri are a highly qualified and experienced team who nurture our little Twinkle Stars to give them the best possible start.

Meals consist of fresh food, prepared on our premises and blended for the little ones who are weaning. For babies we ask that you bring in your own bottles prepared each day, along with a supply of nappies but we provide all other requirements in our nursery.

We love messy play and provide lots of sensory, play and craft experiences to help our youngest children to learn in a natural way through play.

 

SHOOTING STARS

  

We can provide childcare for up to twenty 2 year olds in our Shooting Stars room. There is a wide variety of age appropriate equipment, including books, dressing up, sand and water play, creative activities and much much more. Children are encouraged to learn through play. Parents are fully informed of their child’s progress and care is individual to the child.
We have a highly qualified long serving team of staff in this room, which currently includes Maxine, Michelle, Jaymie, Nicola, Joanne and Claire.

SUPER STARS

Photographs to follow – update in progress

We care for up to sixteen pre-school children in the Super Star room. As children’s attention span lengthens we offer a range of activities specific to their individual needs. With interesting things to do, such as water and sand play, gluing, textiles, dressing up, construction, IT and much more, in fact everything in preparation for big school. Children are encouraged to express themselves through speech and language and are encouraged to fulfil their potential in a naturally developmental way, covering all their needs in our play and learning centre. Our Super Stars particularly love the free flow environment from indoors to outdoors that they benefit from being located in ‘the barn’.

Children can attend School nursery part of the day and spend the other half with our nursery to complete wrap around childcare or they can stay with us and take their free nursery entitlement in a more care and play driven environment which suits some children better than the structured school environment.

Darren leads an enthusiastic, fully qualified team in this room, made up of Nora and Grace.

Our Early Years lead practitioner and fully qualified teacher, Denise, leads regular teaching time with our Super Stars to make sure that they are getting their nursery education in line with the school curriculum

 


ALL STARS

Our All Stars room is our out of school club currently for up to eight children, aged 5 to 12 years of age.

After School

We pick up from a wide variety of schools using our own vehicles and taxis. There are a range of activities available to suit the older age group and staff are on hand to help with any homework or  help with any areas children may be struggling with at school. We provide drinks and a snack tea.

Holiday Club

Our holiday club is available in school holidays, bank holidays, teacher training days and other school closure days.

Our programme of activities begins at 9am until 5pm. (Before 9am and after 5pm the children will be looked after within the main nursery.) Places are booked on an all day session basis. Lunch, drinks and snacks will be provided during the day, including ice-cream/ice-lollies etc on days out.

We visit a wide range of places which are fun and interesting for the children. Some of the trips have included Seaton Carew, Crimdon Dene, Summerhill activity centre, Historic Quay, Mr Twisters, Cinema, the Life Centre in Newcastle, Strawberry Picking, Footprints allotment, arts & craft workshops, Tweddle Farm and many more. We are open to suggestions for future holiday clubs.

Please book your place now as places are limited.

Denise, Allison and Lisa are a few of the very highly and greatly experienced team who look after this group.

COMING SOON: We have plans to develop our out of school services for September 2014 to enable us to bring our great childcare to more children in this age range. Keep your eyes peeled for more news.
