Nippertime Preschool Information
Your child's safety is paramount. We have a number of measures to ensure this.
CCTV and Password Protection
As well as the normal security you would expect to find we have installed Closed Circuit Television covering the entrance for additional security at drop off and collection times. We operate a password collection system for peace of mind.
Staff vettingHand Stand
We operate a strict recruitment process. As well as making sure we get references, all staff must pass a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service, previously CRB check). Even if we recruit someone who already has a valid DBS, we make a new DBS check just to be sure.
My child is not dry yet..
We welcome non-dry children and will help with parents with potty training etc.
When can my child join?
Children must be between 2 and 5 years old. You can reserve a place prior to your child becoming 2 years old.
For all the children activities are designed around the foundation stage.
We are able to use our covered outside area in all weathers.
We organize seasonal activities such as Christmas nativities when all parents, guardians and grandparents are welcome to attend.
Physical Development taught by ex-British Champion Acrobat
Run by our very own ex-British Champion and fully qualified gymnastic coach, the approach is unique and based on 20 years of gymnastic experience. The children are introduced to new ideas of physical development to widen their experience.
Milk, water, fruit and carbohydrates will be provided at morning break. Please notify us if your child has any allergies.
