At Green Dragon Nursery we take children from 3 months to 5 years old. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and cover all seven areas of development both indoors and outdoors.
We have two rooms Caterpillar room 3 months – 2 years old and Butterfly room 2 years old – 5 years old. Green Dragon Nursery times are Monday to Friday 8.00am – 6.00pm for 51 weeks of the year.
Our nursery is organised around different age groups of children. The children in our day care learn and develop very well in our safe and secure nursery environment. They are happy and respond well to the wide range of activities planned for their time at the nursery. We also place great importance on the interaction between our nursery staff and parents.
Every child in our nursery is allocated a key person who works closely with them, monitoring their development and providing care, ensuring they feel happy, confident and secure.
We follow the national standards for the Early Years Foundation Stage. This sets the standards of learning, development and care for children from birth to five years.
We view all aspects of learning and development equally important and ensure a flexible approach is maintained which responds quickly to children’s learning and developmental needs. We develop tailor made activities according to each child’s individual needs, which are based on observations which inform future planning on the children’s needs and interests. This is promoted through a balance of adult led and child initiated opportunities both indoors and outdoors.
