At Kiddi-winks, we understand that you will probably have lots of questions about our nursery and your child attending. We will be happy to answer anything when we see you, but in the meantime, here’s a few of the most common we get asked.
There are a few options, you can contact our Nursery Managers by telephone or email to arrange a tour of the nursery and complete the paperwork. Alternatively, you can book a place via our online booking form, request a prospectus and complete application form. To secure your place there is an administration fee of £100, this also covers your child’s settling in sessions.
To ensure a smooth transition into nursery we recommend at least 3 settling-in visits for all children to enable them to adapt to their new surroundings and to meet staff and children in the room. Where possible, we suggest this is done over 2 weeks to ensure there is time if required, to increase the number of visits.
We have set staff in each room on a daily basis and when staff are on holiday or absent due to illness we have familiar supply staff who cover within nursery so there remains continuity for each child.
Yes, Kiddi-winks provide each child with their own blanket and sheet at nursery. This is stored in a bag labelled with their name. We have a laundry room onsite and bedding is cleaned at least once a week.
We have a Nursery Chef, who prepares all the food on the nursery premises with fresh ingredients, with no added salt or sugar. We have a 3 weekly menu. However the meals aren’t set , allowing children opportunities to try different foods. Our Nursery Chef is qualified in food preparation and food safety.
