The Jays Day Care Nursery and Pre-School has been open since September 1995, providing quality care for children aged 3 months to school age. The children are grouped in to Babies (3 months to 2 years), Toddlers (18 months to 3 years) and Pre-School Room (30 months – school). We have a crossover period so that your child can move rooms when they are ready. We can offer flexible hours to suit your childcare needs.
Each group has its own room and room leader who co-ordinates activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We also have a Holiday Club / Out of School Club during school holidays for school age children and run a Forest School for our Pre-School children and holiday Club children.
All staff are encouraged to attend regular training and most are qualified Nursery Nurses and Nursery Assistants who have vast experience in childcare. The Principal is a qualified teacher. We are a friendly group who are totally committed to offering the very best of care and education as well as a safe, warm and caring environment for your child.
We are OFSTED registered and are affiliated PLA (Pre-School Learning Alliance) and NDNA (National Day Nurseries Association) members and also have close links with the Early Years and Childcare Service.
