children attending Monty’s Daycare have a personal on-line Learning Journey
which records photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years
Foundation Stage, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their
time with us.
We use an
online system called Tapestry to record and store all observations and
assessments relating to each child. This is a safe and secure system and
one that enables parents and carers to access their child’s learning journey at
any time. They can share it with their child, family and friends at home
and also post any comments and photographs of their own, helping to create a
fully holistic view of the children and strengthen the parent partnership.
system provides a quick and easy record that can be accessed by parents or
relatives anywhere they have internet access and will therefore be more current
that the paper based record.
Monty’s Day Care is a purpose built facility which boasts a large outside space providing an array of excellent facilities for children to discover and learn about nature and the natural world, develop their sensory skills, and encourage imagination and play. Our building design is light and airy and encourages free flow throughout the rooms and to the garden. The low level furniture, fixtures, and fittings, have been designed to provide a home from home feel and to create a setting where children feel happy, safe and secure and also allow visual access at all times.
We have 4 nursery rooms;
Baby room, 3 months to 18 months
Toddler room for 18 months to 2 years
Kindekarten room for 2 years to 3 years
Pre-school room 3 years to 5 years
We welcome children on either a full day or session basis. We are open 51 weeks a year, closed for the week between Christmas and New Year. Our hours of opening are 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
At Monty’s we aim to provide a safe and secure homely setting where children can flourish, develop, and learn, through child lead organised play and learning opportunities which will nurture their potential as an individual. We work closely with the Child's home network to meet their specific needs and follow the “Early Years Foundation Stage” curriculum to ensure a complete learning and developmental experience.
We use a Key worker system where your child will have one member of staff assigned to them. This helps create a bond between your child, the staff and you, the parent. The key worker will be able to tell you how your child has been whilst at Monty’s on a day to day basis.
All our staff are warm and friendly and have a great rapport with the children. The staff are carefully selected and receive thorough screening and training including DBS checks before they are employed to work with the children. Staff are encouraged to further their training through internal and external courses.
Manic Monsters Ltd which is a soft play centre shares the site for Monty's. The facilities run independently from each other, however, Monty's has the opportunity of using the soft play equipment when required. This provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop their gross motor skills, exercise and experience fun and exciting interaction with each other.
All our Nursery meals are home made on site and designed to provide a nutritious and balanced diet for the children. Menus are changed throughout the year to suit the seasons, all dietary requirements are catered for.
The Nursery garden has a fantastic array of facilities. We have specific areas designed to encourage children of different ages to play safely in the garden together. We have a huge sandpit, a vegetable & flower garden, a soft surface for ball games or ride-on's and a wooden climbing area and trim trail.
We welcome visits, so please call to make an appointment. During your visit you will be able to discuss your individual requirements and answer any questions you may have.
