At Kinder Daycare and Nursery, our babies are known as Bright Sparks. At our baby our baby rooms we cater for children from the age of 6 weeks up to the age of 2.
At Kinder we work on a maximum staff to children ratio of 1:3. Our babies and infants suites are designed to be bright, cheerful and stimulating, with a variety of enabling caring environments. At Kinder we provide a home away from home where every child is catered for with lots of love and play.
At the age of 2 years old, our Bright Sparks transition into the toddler phase and enter our Whizz Kidz world. At Kinder our toddler rooms we work on a maximum staff to children ratio of 1:4 and cater for children of age 2 to 3 years old.
Our Whizz Kidz rooms are designed to utilise the children’s busy energy enabling your child to explore and experience a wider range of educational yet purposeful fun activities that have been carefully planned and prepared to stimulate their ever expanding minds.
At Kinder during this age we encourage our families and children to take the first steps into potty training, we will encourage your child to be as independent as possible. All we ask is that you bring in lots of spare clothes in case they have a little accident, so they will have their own clothes ready to be changed into.
At Kinder with our Famly app and EYFS planning and observation system in place, your child’s key person will be actively encouraging and developing your child’s interests, planning specific activities for your child, offering them further opportunities to explore and develop.
As our Whizz Kidz approach the age of 3, they start to prepare for pre-school transitioning, so self-selection of activities and independence is encouraged throughout the day-to-day activities at Kinder Daycare and Nursery.
At Kinder Daycare and Nursery, our preschoolers are our Brain Boxes; children from the age of 3-5 enjoy an educational purposeful learning. Every child is encouraged to approach the world with curiosity and with a positive attitude to learn and develop.
Our Brain Boxes learn through play! Using their interests and next steps off development, our educational fun planning that initiates your child’s critical thinking allowing them to learn and develop whilst having fun across all activities planned for them across the whole day at Kinder Daycare and Nursery.
Our Brain Boxes children are encouraged to be independent during Kinder’s free play sessions allowing them to make their own choices from a wide range of different engaging activities and high quality resources. We structure our day to be centered on individual learning where progress and development is carefully observed and recorded by your child’s key person. We share this information with you through our Famly app in forms of daily observations or fun posts of our never ending fun and activities! This, coupled with lots of outdoor play, healthy fresh food provides a busy day for all in the Pre-School Rooms.
At the age of 5 children’s journey with Brain Boxes comes to an end as we have now perpared them for school. The children will be more independent, socially interactive and will have increased levels of confidence, thus they experience a smooth transition to full-time schooling equipped with essential skills from Kinder Daycare and Nursery school readiness educational programme.
