I see and I remember
I do and I understand
Our staff come to us with a variety of childhood backgrounds, but they all have at least one thing in common – a love of working with children and a passion for teaching and watching them grow into competent learners. Our team of practitioners provide exciting opportunities for children to explore and investigate and they use nearly every activity, in which your child engages, as opportunities to teach.
We recognise that parents want to be involved and share their children’s experiences, that is why we invite you to register with Siblings Nursery unique service, ‘text-a-smile’.
Every child at Siblings has a learning journal to show their progress throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This journal is used for formative, summative and evaluative assessments. When your child leaves Siblings Nursery, you can take the learning journal home as a keepsake. The learning journal is useful when children start school as it will give the teacher an indication of where the child is with regards to their developmental milestones. We use Development Matters and ECAT trackers to ensure we track children’s development effectively and support each child to make significant progress in their learning.
All our staff are police checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and hold a suitable Enhanced Disclosure, have current certificates in First Aid for babies and young children and access a wide variety of training. The Nursery Manager holds the BA degree in Childcare and Education the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS), the Assistant Manager is qualified to level 3 in childcare and education and level 5 in leadership and Management and oversees the Nursery and Pre-School Room. The Baby Unit Supervisor is qualified to level 4 in childcare and leads the team in the Baby Unit.
