Hampton Nursery - Our Areas
The Baby Unit
Our Baby unit is small and caring, it can accommodate up to 9 children. The staff are experienced and work regular days for continuity. There are lots of educational toys for free-play activities together with a wide range of sensory experiences for your child to discover and enjoy.
At Hampton Nursery we pride ourselves on having a close partnership with parents working together to achieve the Early Learning Goals outlined in "The Early Years Foundation Stage."
On induction we aim to get to know your child well, discussing your child's particular likes and dislikes, their sleeping / feeding patterns in order to aid transition between the home and nursery environment.
We offer short settling in sessions which are optional building up to your requirements. We initially focus on Personal and Social development whilst your child is "settling in" to nursery as we believe that a happy ,secure child will learn. We invite parents into the nursery for an initial 6 week check meeting and aim to see you each term for progress meetings.
Your child will have a Key person, they will follow your child's progress by setting a" Individual learning plan "with ongoing" Next Steps Assessment" All goals are evidence based and we take lots of group photographs which are displayed in entrance areas. All individual photographs will be uploaded on to your child's Tapestry account.
Our Children transfer from the Baby Unit at approximately 18 months to the Tweenie room. The children are already familiar with the staff which aids transition.
