Yes, we do! At Kiddycare, we believe that children need warm and responsive adults to be around to support their learning, behaviour and development. We understand that children reach their full potential by having good home setting links. Therefore, as part of our philosophy we make sure that every child has their own Key Person.
Our pre-school children only wear uniform as part of our school readiness programme.
We carry out a baseline assessment meeting with parents once your child has settled in well within the nursery (usually within the first 6 weeks of them starting). After this meeting, we carry out parent’s meetings on a termly basis. However, we have an open-door policy at all of our settings so parents can come in and ask any questions and speak to their child’s person about their development and progress at any time.
Our ratios between adult and child vary depending on the age of your child.
Babies ratio is 3:1
Toddlers ratio is 4:1
Pre-school ratio is 8:1
Early Years Teacher ratio is 13:1
