Almond Brook All Stars Nursery Ltd

Nursery History

We are a family run business, who are offering affordable and flexible childcare to local families, with a strong focus on teaching and learning. We have a good team consisting of experienced and qualified practitioners. We encourage parents to be involved in their child's learning and send home weekly learning letters. We have complete end of term reports and have two parent's evenings per year. 

We provide childcare for children aged 0-5 years. 

 

Healthy meals and snacks are provided from The Nursery Kitchen.

We have updated our environment to reflect The Curiosity Approach. This is a modern day approach to Early Years taking parts from Reggio, Steiner, Te Wharkriki and a sprinkle of Montessori. This approach uses authentic resources, recycled materials and loose parts. Encouraging children to use their imaginations and be creative. We have been implementing this approach at our other site and it has had such an amazing impact on all of our children.

 

 

Learning & Play

Staff are constantly evaluating the quality and consistency of learning within the nursery. We have high standards and believe all children deserve the very best learning opportunities.

We take great pride in the children’s Learning Journeys and ensure parent’s view them on a regular basis. During our last Oftsed inspection we were praised for Literacy, Numeracy and PSED being strong embedded in our practice. We have regular group times throughout the day to ensure children are making good progress with their development. 

 

 

A Unique Child

Our nursery has a very loving atmosphere and all practitioners are passionate about creating such a loving environment. The environment is almost all open plan, which is highly stimulating and educational.

We have a strong focus on Every Child Matters and every individual has sensitive needs which must be met. Each child has their own key worker, which is responsible for the child's wellbeing on a daily basis.

We have a high emphasis on equal opportunities and plan activities to each individual child's needs.

 

 

Enabling Environment

Our nursery is mainly open plan, although we do have clearly defined areas. We have a baby room, which is separated into two rooms. One room is multi-sensory, which is ideal for relaxing and sleep. The other room is equipped for messy play and has access to outdoors. Our toddler room is spacious and inviting, with direct access to the bathroom to promote independence with hand washing and toilet training. Pre-school is our largest room, which is at the heart of nursery. Again this room promotes independence and has a strong focus on teaching and learning. The outdoor area again has two sections, one of which is under shelter. So whatever, the weather children will have access to the outdoors. The area is safe and secure, with exciting learning opportunities, which are accessed daily.

 

 

Positive Relationships

We have a strong emphasis on working with parents and all children are allocated a key person. Weekly learning letters inform parents of our activities for the week and we welcome parent contribution.

Practitioners speak with parents during drop off and picking up times and meet regularly with parents to discuss progress.

 

We work with many professionals within the Wigan area, to ensure we are offering the best practice possible. We work with the Local Authority to ensure we implement new strategies, we also work with speech and language therapists, health visitors and physio therapists.
