We have a maximum of 2 children under the age of one year old at any one time, and four children over the age of one year old. We have found that the mixture of ages enhances both the older and the younger children. It encourages the younger age group to emulate the older children and promotes speech, communication and social behaviour. With the older children it encourages their understanding, patience and caring side. Each child has a daily diary to let you know how they are developing and what they have been up to through the day. We also provide a ‘Learning Journey’ which we share with you to assist your child to progress and flourish onto their next step.
We have three qualified staff at Doodles of which two are here at any one time, providing a 1:3 ratio. We work very closely with each child to get to know each character and personality, by getting involved with the games, activities and interacting.
All staff are first aid trained, Ofsted registered and CRB checked.
Julie (Proprietor/Nursery manager) is a credited childminder, so we are able to offer the Early Years 2,3,4 year old, 15 hour funding.
Child care vouchers are also accepted.
