Our team are regularly involved in the local community and this year we organized our first family picnic which proved to be a great success. If you wish to have a look around, please contact us or if you’re in the area, feel free to drop by.
The children at Honeypots all have enquiring and open minds. They love to explore and one of the things they like to do best, is going for walks. Usually the walks take us to the Millennium gardens and surrounding areas where the children can meet horses and ducks and can also watch the trains go by. The children also enjoy helping out with daily chores. All food is prepared on site and chopping vegetables, peeling potatoes or baking bread are all daily activities within the nursery. In the spring the children help to plant and water seeds and during the summer months they all turn into little gardeners. Come autumn we usually have a few home-grown pumpkins to decorate too.
All children have their own online individual learning journals that follow their progress from the first day until they’re leaving for school.
At Honeypots nursery we pride ourselves on the relationships we form with our children and their families. We form long lasting friendships with the children in our care because our focus is always on the child and their wellbeing. We value parental input and strive to ensure that each family receives care that is tailored to their individual needs.
To ensure that each child receives the best care possible, we work hard to create a welcoming environment to all. A big part of this is having a stable staff team. All of our staff members are encouraged to continuously work towards outstanding practices, with a great reward system in place.
