“The staff have very strong links with the pre-school, nursery and school on site. All of the staff work across the settings. This ensures excellent continuity in children’s care, learning and support.” – Ofsted Report – December 2015

We provide a staffing ratio in line with and where possible, above the Welfare requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage to ensure that children have sufficient individual attention and to guarantee care and high quality fun.

Each child in Nursery will follow the EYFS and as such is designated a Key Person, who will liaise with your child’s Key Person in Nursery.  We will link into your child’s ‘what next’ and provide feedback to both you and your child’s teacher or Key Person.

We are confident that our staff provide the very best care for your child at all times and are totally committed to their development and safety.  We work at Bengeo Playgroup or within the school, so bonds have already been formed which provides a smooth transition for when the children start Busy Lizzies Kids Club.
