Our Facilities

Health and Safety

Safety of your child is paramount at Railway Children Childcare Centre. All outer doors are locked so you need to ask to be let in & out. The garden has a secure fence & children are never outside unaccompanied. On trips & outings the children wear wrist straps/reins & our ratio is 1:2

Staff receive training in first aid, we have a Designated Safeguarding Lead and deputies, all staff are trained in Safeguarding.

Every child is an individual!

To make sure you continue to be an individual we are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage, supporting childrens learning and development and fostering the Characteristics of Effective Learning with the needs of the Unique child in mind. We fully support British Values, this is frimly embedded in our nurseries ethos and is integral to the childrens learning and nursery experience. Through carefully planned experiences,resources and equipment, we hope to support each child in understanding the importance of these values. This helps us with putting our mission statement, policies & procedures into practice.

We believe that children learn best when they are happy. We build upon their interests & previous learning experiences. We listen to them & help them to make connections. Children learn from their peers and support each other in their learning.

We have strong links with local schools, easing the transition from nursery to school.
The EYFS says : 'Children develop in the context of relationships and the environment around them. This is unique to each family, and reflects individual communities and cultures.'
