Boomerang Kids is registered to care for 12 under 2’s ranging from birth to 2years.
We offer full day sessions for our under 2’s this is to help our children to settle and enjoy their day, research shows reducing interruptions throughout their day enables them to form good attachments with their key people, and settle into the nursery environment. It is important for children to form attachments with key people to allow them to feel confident and safe within the setting. When children feel happy and secure they are confident to explore and try out new things. It is also very important for use to build up a positive relationship with the child’s parents’ and make them feel welcome; confident to talk with us and feel their child is in the best care possible.
The journey first starts by us offering a home visit to give us the opportunity to meet yourself and your child in your own environment, we offer a further three visits to the setting allowing yourself and your child to meet the staff, children and to play. In these visits your child will be familiarising themselves with us and the setting and starting to build up their attachments with us.
We follow the OFSTED ratio requirements which for this age group are 1 adult to 3 children.
The under 2’s are situated on the first floor of the annex extension. We share the first floor with one of our preschool groups and we are separated by low level furniture which allowing our children to see each other.
In the bunnies they have opportunities to explore the environment and activities as they please. We follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ which recognises the holistic nature of development and learning at this age, with a strong emphasis on learning through interaction with others and exploring the world around them.
