Learning Through Play
At Maggie’s we understand that play is vital to children’s learning and development. Not only is play lots of fun, it helps children to understand the world around them and to develop emotionally and socially.
It is essential for children to have opportunities to play in a safe, secure fun environment with adults who care about them. Children will develop in confidence without feeling pressurised. Our children will be ready to fulfil their potential.
Parents are the Primary Educators of their children. We believe it is imperative to build positive partnerships with parents in order that we can work together to ensure the child reaches their full potential and are happy and contented.
We use an online learning journal to track your child’s progress that you can view at any time.
A well balanced, healthy diet is vital to a child’s health. The food that a child eats affects behaviour, mood, ability to concentrate and ultimately development.
At Maggie’s we take pride in lovingly preparing fresh, healthy, NHS approved meals for children daily on site. We encourage children to eat a range of foods ensuring a healthy balanced diet of protein and carbohydrates as well as dairy products. The health and wellbeing of your child is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to providing your child with healthy, nutritious food to fuel and nourish them through their day.
We are flexible and can cater for children with allergies or cultural prohibitions to certain foods.
At Maggie’s children are nominated their own Key Person, this person will build a special relationship with your child. The key worker will also settle your child into nursery and introduce them to new children and environments as he/she progresses throughout the nursery.
We use online learning journals and engage with parents, providing regular photos and instantly sharing information direct to your device about your child’s day throughout the week. The learning journals detail the observations made by your key person along with information about your child’s progress and development. The online journals also provide an opportunity for parents to feedback to us and share information.
