At Mossley Hill Childcare and Mossley Hill Childcare 2, our aim is to provide a warm happy environment where your children can be looked after with stimulation, fun, rest, cuddles, healthy food and where they can grow into inquisitive, polite, socially aware children that have great memories of their time at our setting.
Our days vary depending on the age of our children. We cater for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. As a child moves into each of these phases their care, play and stimulation needs change. We have created different areas and environments where they can engage in a range of activities that suit their development stage and other individual needs.
The very young babies need a lot of attention, stimulation, care and naps. The older children become much more inquisitive and need far more stimulation and interaction as their interest in the environment and each other increases. At Mossley Hill Childcare our typical activities include painting and creative play, music time, sensory play, listening to stories, exploring the outdoors and singing. All activities are free choice so that the children's interests are observed and their development is moved on through further planned activities based around those observations. All activities are based around the revised Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (March 2017) and the Early Years Outcomes (September 2013)
At Mossley Hill Childcare we do introduce many of the concepts that will form the foundation of the child's primary education. Through play we can introduce colours, shapes, numbers, and of course the alphabet, but our primary focus is teaching our children social skills. We will help them to develop confidence their own ability, and to grasp concepts such as patience, how to be polite and well mannered and kind to other children.
Our nursery food is provided fresh in-house and we have a weekly menu on a 4 week rota, so you will always know what we are serving. We aim to cater for the dietary and religious requirements of all our children so please do tell us if you have any special requests.
Each child will be allocated a single key member of staff who will be primarily responsible for your child and who will be your principal point of contact. This enables us to best fulfil the needs of your child and provide you with accurate feedback on their development and well being.
