It’s no surprise really that some of the children in our Out of School Club progressed there from our nursery. What is rather more remarkable is that some of our staff came to Educare as children, but then we have been here since the late 1990s, building our reputation along the way.
We’ve received glowing recommendations from mums, dads and carers, and the fact that some parents have subsequently come to work for us suggests that maybe the children are spreading the word as well!
There’s no magic formula to what we do; it’s just everything a nursery should do but with icing and cherries on top!
First and foremost we make sure we have a safe, secure and healthy environment managed by experienced, qualified and caring staff. Within that we give the children every opportunity to have fun, learning as they grow, helping them prepare for the challenges of primary school and beyond.
We have a big room and a garden where the children can make a noise – and make a mess. We have quieter rooms where they can concentrate on intricate, artistic creations – and make another mess. And we have secluded spots where the little ones can nod off when it all becomes a bit too hectic.
We show the children how things work and what things do, how to think for themselves, how to care for themselves and how to respect others. We give them cool things to play with and fascinating things to make. We take them to amazing places and we bring interesting visitors in.
We do all this in close consultation with parents and carers, because we recognise that helping your children make the best start in life is the best way we can help you.
