Children are moved between rooms based on individual development rather than age.

Sensory Room Weybridge Surrey

Under 2′s – Baby / Tweenie Room

Babies (3 months to approximately 16 months) and Tweenies (from approximately 16 months to 2 years) benefit from a bright and open plan room with dedicated areas for non-mobile children. Staff cater for their individual requirements.

Babies are supplied with their own bedding and the temperature is constantly monitored to ensure babies are comfortable at all times. Each baby is encouraged to develop through creative and sensory activities. We have a cosy book area and an exciting multi-sensory play area.

There is a separate sleep room to guarantee your baby a quiet and peaceful rest. Tweenies enjoy activities structured around their changing interests. We operate a 1:3 ratio in the Baby/Tweenie Room.

All children receive a hot nutritious meal at lunch time and our dedicated staff team sit with the children to encourage communication and social interaction.

Over 2′s – 3′s Toddler Floor and Pre-School Floor

Both floors are large, bright and spacious. The toddler area has been designed with sensory and creative areas to develop and stimulate the children’s inquisitive minds. Developing their numeracy and literacy skills is facilitated within specific areas.

The room benefits from a creative area for messy play, a home corner, a reading corner and a free play area to allow them to participate in a well-structured day, which helps prepare the pre-schoolers for primary school.

Curriculum Nursery Weybridge

Curriculum at the Nursery

All children at Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries are encouraged to learn through play. Our Curriculum covers all the key areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and is designed to meet the needs of each individual child.

We follow the Government Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which sets the standards for learning, development, and care for children from birth up to 5 years of age.

Principles – Four Themes

The principles which guide the work of our Early Years Professionals are grouped into four themes:

A unique child – every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.

Positive Relationships – children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.

Enabling Environments – the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.

Learning and Development – children develop and learn in different ways and at different times; all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.

In addition there are toilets and sinks to help encourage toilet training for the younger children and independence for the older children.

We operate a 1:4 ratio with our toddlers and a 1:8 ratio with our Pre-school room.

All children receive a hot nutritious meal at lunch time and our dedicated staff team sit with the children to encourage communication and social interaction.

Curriculum Nursery Weybridge
There are three prime areas of learning in which our Early Years Professionals support children to learn and develop. These are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development

Plus four specific areas of learning. These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
Each child has their own key person to enable them to feel reassured, safe and cared for within our setting.

This person also keeps a detailed Learning Journey of the child’s progress during their time with us.

These records are available to be viewed and discussed at any time by parents, who are always encouraged to add details of their child’s experiences from outside the nursery.

Nutrition

We aim to provide fresh balanced meals to all children at each and every meal or snack time.

A choice of fresh fruit is available at snack times, morning and afternoon. We also cater for all dietary requirements and preferences.

Fresh water is available to the children at all times and no squash is served.

Breakfast consists of a variety of non-sugared cereals, wholemeal toast, crumpets or pancakes and banana.

Mid morning and mid afternoon snacks consists of various fruit and a choice of either milk or water to drink.

Lunch is always a balanced hot meal followed by second course which is cooked freshly on the premises by a dedicated nursery cook.

Tea is fresh, wholesome and balanced and includes a variety of choices including homemade soups, pasta dishes and sandwiches/wraps.

Copies of our four week menus and recipes are available at the nursery and in our parents area.

Nursery Staff

The vast majority of our staff are either NNEB (National Nursery Examination Board) or equivalent, or participating in the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Early Years and Childcare.

We have a very high qualified staff ratio which far exceeds that of OFSTED requirements. All of our staff are trained in First Aid.
