About the employer
Applegarth Day Nursery is a modern, open plan, funky state of the art building with 2 floors. All ages have their own designated areas. Applegarth Day Nursery was the first nursery in the East Midlands to have a webcam system installed. There are cameras in all areas of the nursery which you can log onto and watch your child securely with your own username and password. We have a dedicated senior management team, including a qualified teacher with Early Years Professional Status, that work closely to ensure the best for all of our staff and children. All of our staff are DBS checked and have a rigorous induction into our nursery policies and procedures. We pride ourselves in developing our staff team who are highly motivated and committed to the children in their care. All children are assigned a key person to whom they feel safe and secure with to allow them to be happy in their environment. All children in our Baby Unit and Movers and Shakers have a communication diary with all information from their day with us, including meals, milk, toileting and activities. All of our children in our pre-school have home-school diaries with information about what we have been learning about, ideas you can do at home and what you have been learning about at home. We provide the 15 hours government funding sessions for 3-5 year olds and we are registered for 2 year old funding places. We provide wrap around care for hours outside of this funding.
