Here you can find out about how we run things at Sunshine Nursery and Afterschool Club. We need your help to keep this organisation running as smoothly as possible!
If you would like a place for your child at our centre, please make an appointment and we'll gladly take the time to explain everything you need to know. You can make an appointment by phone or by using our contact form. We look forward to meeting you!
What happens if my child is ill?
It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Only when the fever has subsided for a whole day should you return your child to the nursery. If the disease is infectious, we'll need a doctor's note confirming that your child is no longer contagious.
At the end of each session, parents are given information on their child’s day, such as how much food they have eaten, the activities they have participated in, and enjoyed, and of any achievements.
When the time comes for children to move to the next room, the transition will be simplified by the fact that they already know the staff and they are very familiar with the nursery. Parents are invited to meet the staff see the next room before the transition.
The nursery works in partnership with the Local education authority providing partially funded places for the three and four year olds.
Parents Evening and Reports
In October, we have a parents evening to discuss with parents how their child has settled in and to address any queries or concerns they might have. An end of term report on each child’s achievements, within the eight key areas of the curriculum is written in May, and a further parent’s meeting follows in June.
Children's Learning Journal
At the end of the year a profile of the children's work is given to the parents informing how some of the learning the children has experienced has taken place as well as photographs of various activites your child has taken part in, there is also a combination of descriptions of activites, observations made by staff, examples of work and some quotes of some of the things your child has said.
We have introduced a new form of documenting your child's profile of experiences at nursery. The Interactive Learning Dairy. This app is safe and secure, if you require further information about security I will be able to refer you to the company. The ILD demonstrates evidence of learning and next steps, there is a parent portal that parents can contribute to by adding voice messages, observations from home and photographs.
Our Early Learning and childcare Teacher hosts a curriculum evening each year at the beginning of February. This is an opportunity for parents to see the storyboards of the children work and a combination of the learning outcomes from each of the areas throughout the year.
