Our rooms are divided into four age groups
Depending on the age of your child, they will be allocated a keyworker. The key worker will build a special relationship, take prime responsibility for your child and will understand your child’s individual needs. You will most likely find that the key worker becomes your child’s best friend! They will let you know at the end of the day what activities your child has been involved in, what progress they have made and what fun they have had during the day. We offer care that meet needs of children of different ages and have lots of fun as we grow and learn at Queen of Hearts.
Bear Cubs 0-1 years
FOCUS : PLAY
Babies of six weeks and upwards are looked after by a qualified and caring staff team in their own quiet and stimulating room filled with soft cushions, feeding chairs, cots, colourful displays and mobiles. This is a happy place with plenty of time for hugs & cuddles and a safe environment for when your baby starts to crawl and walk. We provide exciting daily activities to feed young imaginations and we can guarantee plenty of love for all our babies! Queen of Hearts Bear Cubs rooms are unique and unlike anything you will find elsewhere. It is important to us that the first transition from home to nursery is a smooth one, particularly for new parents. That’s why you will find a real home from home environment, especially designed so that your baby will be surrounded by familiar things such as sofas and coffee tables, fireplaces and rugs, photos of baby’s family, all things that will help baby settle.This room in particular tries to mirror your baby’s home with sofas, coffee tables and even fireplaces.
Little Monkeys 1-2 years
FOCUS : PLAY
This is a place for your child to enjoy free play, group story time, singing sessions and structured play, promoting their social skills and satisfying their inquisitive minds. The carers that work with children in this age group are aware that your toddler needs someone to talk and listen to them at their own level. Every day is a new experience … sand, water, collages, building, baking, puzzles and the home corner are just a few of the activities your child will enjoy.
Happy Hippos 2-3 years
FOCUS : CREATE
Your child will start to learn all round development skills such as primary colours, shapes and counting. Children get messy playing with spaghetti and jelly; they splash in the water trough, dig in the sand and paint masterpieces for you to take home and treasure. Social interaction is very beneficial to children of this age and your child will start to become aware of his or her peers and will develop friendships and make new friends. This is also the room where we encourage and support children with potty training. Growing toddlers need clear limits in a safe and fun environment.
Clever Crocs 3 years and over
FOCUS : EDUCATE
Pre school rooms offer stimulating, exciting activities to stretch skills and imagination and will give your child a head start for when they begin school. Our carers in pre school make children feel successful and very special and they are treated as respected individuals. High standards are achieved by implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS). These are communication, language and literacy, mathematical development, knowledge & understanding of the world, creative & physical development as well as personal, social and emotional development. This is an environment in which children will flourish and become more confident and independent with each day.
