Bright Sparks Children's Centre
Bright Sparks Children's Centre is are aware of how important family life is to children and the pressures that modern society can have upon this. Therefore we aim to be as flexible as we can to be able to accommodate for most childcare needs.
We have a very well equipped Baby Room for the babies where they can safely explore treasure baskets or strengthen their mobility skills using walkers or the baby gym for example. The babies are encouraged to develop a set routine of feeds and naps within the regular nursery routine but this is adapted to suit the child themselves as required. Nappies are changed every 2 hours or sooner if required.
Then there is the Toddler and Pre-school area for the mobile children with a separate teaching area for the older children (this is where the children get a bit more teaching in-put from our highly trained practitioners).
There is a large variety of high quality, fun and educational learning resources available for the children to freely choose throughout the day, alongside the carefully planned activities designed to help them reach their individual learning goals.
There is also a wide selection of art and craft materials available all day for the children to choose from if they wish to be creative, or simply to explore and get messy with.
The children love the adaptable home corner that can become a shop, vets, hospital etc. etc. depending on the children's current interests (which staff plan the activities around).
The children have lots of different resources available for them to 'mark make' in preparation for learning to write at school. This is a very important skill for the children to learn so resources are always available no matter where the children are playing.
Children can enjoy playing outside safely in all weathers.
Along with the free play there are set times during the day when the staff carry out skilfully planned activities with the children that expand their learning and help them to reach their individual goals.
