At The Teepee Day Nursery we cherish and nurture every child we are privileged to care for, providing a creative, fun play environment as well as valuable Early Years Foundation Stage learning and development for children from six weeks of age to pre-school age. As with everyone else, children with special needs are welcomed too. We aim to provide a diverse community, so look forward to discussing any individual needs that you and your child may have.
As your child grows, the emphasis between care and education gradually shifts in focus and we take our role as educators very seriously. Even so, at The Teepee Day Nursery, we believe it is important to be allowed to be a child and to have maximum enjoyment at this precious age. We aim to achieve this by having fun and learning through play.
Our practice is based on a programme called Early Years Foundation Stage. This is a framework to support children in their earliest years. It provides information on child development, effective practice, examples of play activities to promote play and learning, guidance on planning and resourcing and meeting diverse needs.
