Structure of our day
At Tiddly Winks Nursery the aim of our nursery in Redhill is to provide a warm happy place where your children can be looked after with stimulation, fun, rest, cuddles, healthy food and so that they can grow into inquisitive, socially aware children that have great memories of their time at Tiddly Winks.
Our days vary depending on the age of our children. We cater for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. As a child moves into each of these phases their care, play and stimulation needs change. We have created different areas and environments where they can engage in a range of activities that suit their development stage.
The very young babies need a lot of attention, care and naps so they can re-charge their batteries. Whereas the older children become much more inquisitive and need far more stimulation as their interest in the world and each other increases. At Tiddly Winks Nursery our typical activities include painting, music, sensory play, listening to stories and singing.
At Tiddly Winks Nursery, we now use LearningBook, a digital online learning journal system to document children’s learning and achievements.
“LearningBook is a Digital Learning Journey that combines easy to use, practical features with beautiful design, underpinned with safeguarding-aware technology.”
Our staff use secure hand held tablets to collect not only photographs, but also video and audio clips as well. Once uploaded, you will be able to
view your child’s early learning experiences and assessments via the online parent portal. There, you can see how each observation links to the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and your child’s next steps. This, along with the option to write comments on observations and upload photos from home, provides a great opportunity for information sharing, to enable us to have the best possible knowledge about your child, and be able to plan for their development.
We would be delighted to show you how the system works, and re-assure you of the online security of the set-up when you visit the nursery.
