Honey Bear Day Care

Honey Bear Day Care is an established Day Nursery that has been based in the heart of Westleigh for nearly 20 years. We operate a baby room, nursery room, pre-school and a before and after school club, alongside this we have introduced our holiday club to run throughout the year to help parents with childcare during the school holidays. We are registered to care for children 0-11 years of age. 

The aim of our Nursery is to create a safe yet stimulating environment with a caring and loving atmosphere where a child's individual needs are catered for. We aim to promote the child's self esteem and self reliance. We will allow the children to progress at their own pace, to think for themselves and be allowed choice, but most of all, to be children. We plan to stimulate the children through play and through the experiences we will provide for them, because we recognise that purposeful play is an essential and rich part of the learning process for young children.

We have 19 members of staff, many of whom have been employed from the start of our journey, 20 years ago. All staff hold appropriate Early Years qualifications and all staff are Paediatric First Aid trained. We also have a resident nursery cook who is based onsite. We have recently undertaken a full setting course to be awarded Dementia Friends from Wigan Council, we are working in partnership with Westleigh Lodge, our local Care home. We also hold an accredited SENCO Award.

Notes

Honey Bear Day Care has a Facebook Page. Parents enjoy looking at photographs of their children taking part in activities during their sessions. Useful information relating to parenting are also shared by this means. Please take a look to get a taste of the environment and note the children's enjoyment as they are in our care. Pictures often speak louder then words.

Notes

As Honey Bears is located within the Startwell Centre, we are fortunate to have facilities such as baby clinics and activity sessions that support families and children's development in general. We encourage our families to take part in sessions that are available, to give their children additional opportunities to interact with other children and families.
