Play is essential for all children, it is through play that young children learn, grow and develop new skills, helping them to explore the world around them. Play gives children the opportunities to take risks and to develop social skills, it allows them to feel happy emotionally and we believe that happy children are confident learners. To support this, we have ensured that our playrooms are designed specifically for the young learner. Stepping away from the traditional concepts of childcare, we have designed our rooms to be a calming and cosy environment, full of opportunities to explore and learn.
Our baby rooms are designed to be a home-from-home environment where babies and very young children can have full access to their own space. We have integrated our cosy places for sleeping and equipped areas for feeding into places for rolling, crawling, toddling, climbing and investigating.
As the children get older, our play spaces are adapted to meet their independent needs. We observe, plan for and track children’s development milestones on an individual basis.
This allows for us to keep up to date on our resources and equipment, these will always meet the preferences and interests of the children. We provide areas to be creative, areas to be active, areas to be thoughtful and imaginative, and places to explore. We are certain that your preschool child will have the up most fun and be happy whilst learning in an enhanced learning environment.
We encourage children to take risks, get messy and explore. We inspire children to be inquisitive and become independent, developing the natural stages of a young child in doing so. Your child’s learning will always be supported by a qualified, experienced and dedicated team of staff who share our company vision and ethos. Our main priority is to ensure that your child is at the centre of everything we do.
Our outdoor spaces are designed to support children’s natural instincts to learn outdoors. Our equipment supports gross motor skills, encourages freedom of movement and helps your child to express themselves in the joy and wonder of nature.
Our teams have been carefully chosen to guarantee your children are cared for to the highest standard. Each staff member is employed for their wealth of knowledge and passion for children, as well as specific skills and experience.All of our staff undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which is reviewed periodically. We take pride in offering a number of ongoing training courses for our staff, these include Safeguarding Children, Paediatric First Aid and Food Safety.
We also offer specialist training to either enhance or support the opportunities we can offer to children with specific needs.
All of our meals are prepared fresh daily using quality ingredients. We encourage independence by offering snacks from a self-service snack bar for mid-morning and afternoon snacks. We ensure that fresh drinking water and milk is available for all children to access throughout the day.
Lunch is prepared on site and our seasonal menus are created in line with current government guidelines for young children. Our menus are changeable depending on children’s preferences and seasonal products. All of our menus for main meals and tea are displayed on our parents/carers notice board.
We include trusted favourites as pasta dishes, roast dinners, casserole and mild varieties of ‘around the world’ foods like chillies, rice dishes and curries. If your child does have any dietary or allergy requirements, we are happy to support this. Please discuss any requirements with us whilst booking a place for your child.
Our ethos at Tallulah Beau Day Care is to empower all within our setting to reach their full potential. We provide a range of opportunities to encourage children to explore, think for themselves to find solutions and know that it is okay to make mistakes. We aim to build their resilience, self-esteem and self-belief, encouraging positive attitudes to future learning.
We base our learning and development on the government's Early Years Foundation Stage requirements. This emphasises the importance of encouraging a child’s communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development for our youngest children. As the children get older, we also focus on Literacy, Mathematics, understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design. By incorporating these into their daily routine, the children learn through a range of fun and varied activities. Our activities include story time, singing, crafts, role play, dancing and baking, to name but a few.
Their play experiences are based around their individual development needs, providing them with the correct stimuli to reach their maximum potential at their own pace. Our parent’s handbook explains the governments Early Years Foundations Stage and how as a nursery, we ensure we meet their guidelines for children that all Early Years providers must meet.
We endeavour to ensure all children leave us with a love of learning, emotional resilience and age appropriate independence. We offer our assurance that all children leave Tallulah Beau Day Care ready for school, with wonderful memories of their nursery life for both our children and their families. We create a learning record whilst your child attends our setting which tracks their learning, includes photographs and includes staff observations of your child at play. These are always available for parents/carers to access at the nursery and are given to parents/carers when their child moves to school as a sentimental record of their time at nursery.
Our nurseries have been chosen by the LEA to allow us to offer places for those children eligible for the 15 hours funded education at the age of 2 years. The funding for 2 year olds meets a different funding eligibility and is offered only to either low income families, families on specific benefits or children with special needs.Find Out More
All children aged 3 years and over can claim the 15 hours universal funding from the term after their 3rd birthday. These funded childcare hours are the same hours that a child would access if they attended a school nursery. We are inspected by Ofsted and the LEA to ensure we offer the same learning and development as school nurseries.Find Out More
