Welcome to The Courtyard Pre-School/Nursery
The hours of opening for our Pre-School are:
Monday – Friday 8.00 am to 4.00 pm.
The Courtyard Pre-school has been running for the past thirteen years and is OFSTED registered. We are also under the Elim Pentecostal Church.
WE offer an exciting educational programme that is in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. (EYFS), this covers development of children between the ages of 2 years to 5 years.
Our aim is to support and enhance the learning and development of every child attending by providing a safe, stimulating and caring environment for their wellbeing learning and development through play.
We are registered to have children between the ages of 2 years – 5 years; this means children can remain with us until they start school/reception. Our maximum number of children on any one-day is 35.
All our staff are committed to and qualified in childcare and education and are constantly attending and updating their training.
Our ratio of children to adults is always met and we have a parent rota in place for parent(s)/carers to help out during a session. We have a parent rota in place for parent (s)/carers to give their help, we also have volunteers who give their time which enables them to do their childcare courses. They are always CRB checked before starting with us.
The adult to child ratio each day is:
2yrs – 3yrs 1 adult to 4 children
3yrs+ 1 adult to 8 children.
These ratios are always adhered to.
