Cygnets is a privately maintained Pre - School Nursery which offers early year’s education to children aged between 2 and 5 years. The day to day running of the setting is run by the management team alongside experienced trained staff. We serve the local community but welcome families from outside the local area into the setting. Our goal is to support both parents and children during their time with us, helping the children to be prepared for their transition to School.
Our aim is to provide a continuous, free-flow provision where every child is considered to be unique and where they feel safe and secure, whilst becoming confident, self - motivated, independent learners. We present a wide range of activities which promote your child’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills as well as language development. These skills will be developed through both organised and child initiated play which stimulates initiative and imagination.
We encourage and support children to learn through play whilst having fun and work in partnership with parents/carers to enable the children to thrive. We support both parents and children during their time with us, helping the children to settle and prepare for their next step up to 'Big School'.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum to offer the children many different and challenging activities through planning and self-choice.
There are seven members of staff, four of whom are qualified to Level 3 NVQ/Diploma in Childcare and Education,one member of staff has a level 4 qualification, one member of staff is currenty completing level two and one member of staff is holds a Ba Hons (level 6). All staff are mums themselves, so have a good understanding of the needs of young children.
