At Fig Tree we recognise that children are born with the innate ability to learn and they are their own best teachers, as long as their environment and interactions provide opportunities for rich learning experiences.
We believe that children should have meaningful learning experiences and the freedom to express themselves. We follow the children’s interest and cater for their needs through meaningful play.
By the time our children leave Fig Tree we want them to be confident in themselves, be curious about their world as well as courageous, independent and with a thirst for knowledge.
To provide a safe and welcoming environment for children to learn and have fun
To employ dedicated staff with a passion for quality childcare and invest in their ongoing training
To work with parents and families to best meet each individual child’s needs
EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT
At Fig Tree Day Nursery, it is important to us that each child is supported to progress in their personal, social and educational development. All our activities are designed to meet the targets of the EYFS. This is the Early Years Foundation Stage which is the government framework for under 5’s learning and development.
Every child has a key worker and an online private journal, Tapestry, which tracks all your child’s observations and assessments. It will feature some pictures of your child whilst they are at the nursery.
Your child's individual progress can be given to their teacher on starting at primary school. This log is also shared with the child’s parents so they can be involved in their child’s education.
Unique and Valuable
As a small nursery, we maintain a friendly approach where your child is treated as an individual and can express their own personality in a safe and comfortable environment. With our extended opening hours, we cater for families who need childcare outside of the standard hours and work together with parents and carers to provide childcare solutions that work for you.
