Welcome to

PUFFIN’S

PRE-SCHOOL & DAY NURSERY

OUTSTANDING CARE

Here at Puffin’s we strive to provide

outstanding care for children aged

2-5 years old, giving them the best

opportunity to grow and develop

their knowledge and skills whilst

having lots of fun!

At Puffin’s we aim to provide a

home-from-home environment that is

safe, nurturing and

stimulating, allowing the children

to feel happy and confident as they

learn.

OUR ENVIRONMENT

We value how important the early

years are, and therefore we aim

to create an enviroment that will

encourage each child’s

development, enabling them to

gain knowledge and

experience whilst also

continuing to develop skills they

have already acquired. Whilst we

recognise the

importance of their

intellectual and academic

development, we also want the

children to enjoy every moment they

spend at Puffin’s pre-school and have

lots of fun!


WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL

EVERY CHILD IS UNIQUE

Every child is unique; therefore, we

are dedicated to truly knowing each

child; understanding and respecting

their individuality. We value their

differences and will always aim to

enable each child to express

themselves whilst encouraging them

and supporting them to feel, behave

and develop in their own way.

OUR TEAM

Puffin’s have a small team of wellqualified

and experienced

individuals who all have a passion for

providing the highest quality of care.

We are always improving our

knowledge and experience and seek

to get to know you, your child and

your family circumstances so that

we can provide the highest quality of

care to you as a family.

ACTIVITIES

We feel it is paramount that every

child is given maximum

opportunity to gain knowledge and

skills through a range of activities

that are age appropriate. As well as

having a daily programme of

different activities, each child’s Key

Person will plan activities alongside

the Early Years Foundation Stage

curriculum to suit the ability and

interests of each child.

HEALTHY MEALS

All of our meals are prepared on site

using fresh produce by our Nursery

Cook. Our 4 weekly menu is updated

every term and provides 3 nutritious

meals per day along with a healthy

morning snack. We encourage

children to eat well and build healthy

eating habits to continue for years to

come! We cater for all dietary

requirements and allergies.

We aspire to always exceed your expectations

and will continue to grow and improve


OUR VISION & VALUES

Our Puffin’s philosophy is to have “A place

in which children are celebrated, loved

and given the opportunities to succeed.”

We believe this can be achieved with

standing by the values of

“Extraordinary people providing

outstanding care through unique

opportunities to exceed

expectations”

September 2018. We are situated in a residential road just 500m from

SECURITY

At Puffin’s we aim to provide a place

that has the highest safety standards

at all times.

The entrance to the building is

fitted with a high security

coded system. The code

allows the parents into the

entrance porch only. Visual

identification must then

be made via the video

phone before any visitors

are allowed to enter the

premises.

OUR TEAM

The Puffin’s team have a broad range of knowledge, skills and experience.

The majority of our team hold a qualified status (NVQ3 or equivalent) and

those who are not currently qualified are working towards their

qualification.

We continue to provide all members of the team with diverse training

opportunities, allowing them to grow as an individual and a practitioner and

continue to achieve improvement.

At Puffin’s we aim to employ a higher number of staff than the

requirements set by Ofsted for the staff to children ratios. This allows us to

provide the children in our care with a greater amount of individual

attention.

All members of the team hold a current Paediatric First Aid qualification and

are subject to police, health and reference checks.


WORKING TOGETHER

At Puffin’s we work hard to ensure that

we build a relationship with both the

child and with parents,

allowing us to work together to

support the child through their

learning and development and

provide a diverse range of

opportunities. We feel that good

communication is key and

encourage parents to feel welcome into

the Pre-School at any time to

discuss any issues relating to their child or

the Pre-School. We will always operate an

open-door policy to all parents.

Each child is assigned to a key person who has a responsibility to monitor

the child’s progress, maintain development records and plan and provide

stimulating activities to encourage the child’s development. We will hold

regular parent’s evenings which will give you, the parent, the chance to sit

down and discuss your child and their development with their key person.

Keeping the parents well informed is essential for us to provide the highest

quality of care possible. General notices will be displayed in the Pre-School,

a weekly newsletter is distributed, and we will communicate face-to-face,

via telephone and email where necessary. Parents are also invited to attend

open and information evenings throughout the year.

MEAL TIME

At Puffin’s we provide Breakfast, Lunch and Tea,

as well as a healthy snack in the morning. All

of our meals are prepared on site using fresh

produce. We always use free-range eggs

and organic milk. We believe that it is

paramount for us to encourage all

children to eat well, enjoy a varied

diet and build healthy eating habits to

continue into years to come.

We cater for all dietary requirements and

allergies; please let us know of any. We also

do weekly cooking activities to encourage the

children to learn about food and the benefits of

a healthy diet.

PUFFIN’S PRE-SCHOOL

Puffin’s Pre-School can cater for 24 children a day, ages 2-5 years old.

At Puffin’s your child will benefit from an environment that will encourage

them to develop as an individual. We will provide a range of activities that

follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to suit the ability of

each child; supporting them through their learning and helping them to

build foundations of practises that will prepare them for their transition

into a school environment. We realise the importance of helping children

to settle and understand that parents/carers must feel comfortable leaving

their children. We provide a home-from-home environment that is safe,

nurturing and stimulating, allowing the children to feel happy and

confident as they learn.

We encourage the

children to have time each

day to explore the outdoors,

no matter what the weather!

We will do this through both

structured and free play. Our

garden is well equipped with a

range of activities including sand

and water play, mark-making,

problem-solving and a growing area

for those green-fingered little ones.

EYFS CURRICULUM

At Puffin’s we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS).

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that

enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early

years and a child’s experience between birth and age five have a major

impact on their future. Good parenting and high quality early learning

together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their

abilities and talents as they grow up.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets

the standards that we must meet to ensure

that children learn and develop well and

are kept healthy and safe. It promotes

teaching and learning to ensure

children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives

the children the broad range of

knowledge and skills that provide the

right foundation for good future

progress through school and life.

The EYFS seeks to provide quality and

consistency in early years settings, a secure

foundation through learning, partnership

between practitioners and parents and

equality of opportunity; ensuring that every

child is included and supported.

The EYFS specifies requirements for learning and development and for

safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.
