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 Pediatric First Aid trained. We also have a resident nursery cook who is based on site. 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.
