We are an independant family run business offering flexible quality care for school children. Our Aim is to provide quality care and education for all children attending the nursery.
We are open between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm. We offer a 7:30am - 7.00pm day by arrangement for an addtional fee. We only close for bank holidays and for 1 week during the Christmas period.
We provide flexible care on a full, part, sessional and occasional basis, and we also provide before/after school care and a holiday club.
The Nursery Day
The nursery organises the day so that the children participate in both child led and adult led activities that aim to stretch their minds, language and ability. These take into consideration the individual needs of each child and their differing energy levels throughout the day.
All children have the opportunity for outdoor play which contributes towards their good health, physical development and knowledge of the world around them.
Plans for room activities are always on display and please ask a member of staff to explain them in more detail if you wish.
Baby Room (0-2yrs)
Our specifically equipped baby room provides a warm and nurturing environment where your baby can explore and learn. The embedded key person system ensures continuity of care and enables the staff to really get to know your babys needs.
Building excellent relationships with you, your childs key person will expand home routines within the setting, so you can be confident of the best possible care.
The play areas are attractively designed with stimulating and inviting resources that are guaranteed to engage the intended age range. Your baby will have the opportunity to explore new and exciting experiences everyday such as paint, water and sand as well as more unusual mediums such as shaving foam and gloop.
Continuing the Key Person system and well planned transitional stages, your growing child will move naturally and seamlessly into the next room. Here at Amber's Attic we recognise that at this age your child is learning at a fast pace, developing their identity and eager to make their place in the world.
Covering all areas of the EYFS ( early years foundation stage ) this room aims to excite and stimulate two year old's thirst for knowledge. As they begin to grow they are encouraged to make more choices whilst staff are on hand to assist with play and learning. Activities aim to develop the beginnings of social skills like sharing and playing with friends.
This room has the added advantage of free flow to the outdoor classroom where bigger, bolder and different experiences can be had enhancing your childs physical development and experimental mind.
Here we prepare your child ready for the transition to school. Activities begin to take a more structured approach whilst your child has the freedom to choose play experiences and experiment their own ideas. From September 2017 the government are doubling the funded childcare for 3 & 4 year olds, from 15 to 30 hrs per week for working families.
Base Club provides before and after school holiday care for children from reception to 6 years.
We can drop off and pick up your child from Chapelfield Primary School during term time.
Whilst at the setting, the children who attend Base Club are given the opportunity to partake in games, creative activities or have quiet time to read or complete homework. A breakfast and/or a snack tea is provided.
During the holiday club, children will partake in a variety of activities that give a mix of fun, education and excitement. This may be a trip to the farm, a museum or even going to the cinema.
