When selecting a nursery to care for and educate your child it is very important that you have confidence in the individuals and organisation providing this service. Selecting a Casterbridge nursery provides you with the following benefits:
Quality care and education
- An innovative approach which follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and puts children at the centre of all that we do.
- Fully inclusive care including meals, milk and nappies for your convenience.
- High standards of nutrition with all meals prepared on site using locally supplied produce. Menus are developed by our senior chef team to reflect seasonal produce and create a varied menu which the children enjoy.
- Crisis management procedures combined with the support of our central team and other nurseries make us capable of minimising the disruption caused by factors such as adverse weather, sickness or power cuts.
Professional and financial support
- The financial security offered by company ownership.
- Continual re-investment in our nurseries to ensure we offer a happy and safe environment which provides the latest equipment to help children develop.
- A support network of regional Directors of Childcare who work with Nursery Managers to constantly improve the quality of care and education and offer support to parents.
- Our own highly experienced Health and Safety adviser to support individual Nursery Managers to deliver the highest standards of health and safety.
- Community based, highly individual nurseries run by childcare experts, supported by Casterbridge but with a high degree of autonomy.
- A highly motivated and well qualified team who benefit from extensive training opportunities delivered internally by our Academy and Regional Trainers and by outside experts. This helps staff retention, improves skill levels and provides continuity of care for your child.
- Partnership with Parents enables our parents to actively participate in shaping our nursery culture and community.
- The Key Person approach helps parents and children form relationships with their key carer at nursery.
- Continual communication with parents, both formally and informally, to ensure children’s development needs are fully met.
