Childcare and Education facilities at Beresford
We aim to provide high quality provision for chldren and families. We work within the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage for children ages 0-5 years. We provide a stimulating environment which gives children opportunities to learn and develop with confidence, to form relationships and communicate. Our provision is safe and secure but we also encourage children to become independent problem solvers as they play.
We also offer free places for 3 and 4 year old children. These places are for 15 hours per week during term time from the term following the child's third birthday.
Our Children's Centre is well resourced with quality toys and equipment and there are good cleaning schedules in place to ensure high standards of hygiene. Our purpose built facility has many built in safety features such as cool to touch radiators and finger protectors to doors, and all staff are trained to carry out continual risk assessments.
Our childcare facilities are open from 8.00am until - 6.00pm during 51 weeks of the year. The cost for daycare is available on request.
