day to day


Our timetable and routines
Our setting believes that care and education are equally important in the experience we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the session/day are provided in ways that:

  • help each child to feel that she/he is a valued member of the nursery
  • ensure the safety of each child
  • help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group
  • provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning

We organise our sessions so that the children can choose from – and work at – a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.

The nursery provide a healthy Morning and Afternoon snack. This will vary from week to week, depending on topics, themes or the time of year.
Such snacks may include one that the children have made themselves through simple cooking. We have a comprehensive menu of snacks that vary season to season, based on a healthy eating lifestyle and we support local Isle of Man Farmers and buy meat and vegetable and fruit sourced locally. It is our firm belief that we can introduce a variety of new foods to your child in a relaxed and sociable setting where he/she may be encouraged to experiment by friends and the Staff Team.
We make snack time a social time where children and adults eat together. We have a healthy eating policy in place, and will encourage children to try healthy and nutritious foods.

Milk and water are provided throughout the day.

Special Diets
Special diets due to allergies or religions will be catered for with pleasure. Do tell us about your child’s dietary needs and we will make sure that these are met.

There are policies and procedures in place. Please ask your child’s prospective key worker.

It is our pleasure to share with you in the celebrations of your child’s birthday. If you would like to bring in a birthday cake for your child to share with their Nursery friends, please be aware we have a no nut policy in place. We will of course entertain your child with a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’.

A dropping off area has been designated at the front of the building for your use. Please exercise great care when bringing and collecting your children.
Anyone using the car park does so at their own risk. The company does not accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to persons.
Please park responsibly in the marked parking bays.

Collection of Children

  • All children must be collected by the end of the session they are booked to attend
  • All children must be collected by an adult over the age of 16 years
  • If any person other than the parent or authorised adult known to us is to collect your child, the Office must be informed beforehand and introduced whenever possible
