We appreciate that choosing suitable childcare for your son or daughter can be difficult and quite an anxious time for you as parents/guardians, we hope that the relaxed and friendly atmosphere here at Hindley Brooklands Childcare will help make yours and your child’s experience at our nursery a natural and enjoyable one. We endeavour to create a homelike environment that allows your child to become a confident and empathetic individual within the community.
We offer places for children from as young as 6 weeks up until your child takes that next milestone into school life, which will occur the September following their 4th birthday.
The nursery was purpose-built and was the forth setting to open in the Brooklands chain. All rooms have been carefully designed and naturally decorated in order to create a calming and tranquil atmosphere, which facilitates communication friendly spaces. This approach is designed to support children’s speaking and listening skills, emotional well being and engagement which underpin children’s overall learning and development. Theorists and childcare experts believe that by allowing natural sunlight and creating neutral play spaces we allow brain development to occur. The most important brain development takes place from birth to two years and will rapidly develop during the early years of your child’s life and by offering carefully designed play spaces we will meet the growing needs of the very youngest babies to the oldest pre-schoolers.
Your child’s learning will be supported and encouraged by our team of highly trained early year’s practitioners who follow the early year’s foundation stage framework to support your child’s development. We will work closely alongside you, as we believe it is both good parenting and supportive high quality childcare that build firm foundations for early years learning and development. Encouraging children to make the most of their unique abilities and talents that will enable them to fulfil their ambitions and goals as they develop and grow up into young confident individuals.
Each child is assigned their own key early year’s practitioner upon entry. This key practitioner will personally plan and care for your child’s unique individual needs incorporating ‘Island Time’ a project that is promoted and supported by the local authority. ‘Island Time’ is designed to strengthen and build positive relationships between practitioners and peers which will enhance and support your child’s learning experiences and encourage independence. We have received local recognition for the implementation of this project.
