Newton site has two buildings – Earle street and Canal street.
Little Foxes took over this nursery that was previously Wind in the Willows on 17th August 2016.
Earle street is made up of three converted cottages, set over two floors. Located on the ground floor is now the baby room with a brand new baby garden. We developed the room and it now includes a sensory room, beach room, sleep room and creative room with direct access into a outdoor provision solely for use by the babies. Pre-School is located on the ground floor. We have had a brand new garden developed. The Toddlers are in the upstairs room and have access to both gardens.
Canal street is a purpose built nursery. The nursery is an open plan building. The layout inside splits the room into 2 with the babies on one side of the nursery and the 2-5’s in the other. We have created a focused room for the practitioners to take small groups of children to complete activities such as phonics and language assessment programmes. Both rooms have free flow access to the garden the babies have a outdoor play area just for them with astro turf to ensure it is comfortable for babies to crawl around on.
The nursery is open 5 days per week, 7.30am to 6.00pm (6:30pm for canal street) and is open all year round except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
The Nursery Manager is the SENCO and Safeguarding Officer, we also have a fully trained SENCO at canal street who supports Kath and all staff are trained in Safeguarding. All practitioners hold a recognised Paediatric First Aid Certificate.
Our ethos is ‘to give unlimited and natural play experiences’. A major part of this is to have the setting painted calm neutral colours and have as many open ended natural resources.
The nursery has CCTV with sound added into the playrooms and garden areas, this is monitored at head office. We have coded doors added onto the playrooms to ensure the safety of the children using the nursery.
