The Pre-School is run by a Management Committee (mostly made up of voluntary parents and reprsentatives of the local community) elected every year at an Annual General Meeting and they are committed to ensuring the best possible start for your child.
The welfare of all children at Pre-School is of paramount importance.
The Children’s Act 1989 and Every Child Matters Act 2004 ensures, that by law, certain kinds of provision in terms of care for children under eight are registered by the Social Services. Certain requirements are laid down in law and regulations issued by the Secretary of State.
Others are set by O.F.S.T.E.D.
These requirements must be met before any scheme can be registered. Registered schemes such as ours are visited by the Pre-School Learning Alliance branch Field-Workers.
Both the O.F.S.T.E.D and the Pre-School Learning Alliance are satisfied that Bletchley Pre-School and Creche offers a safe and secure environment for children and staff.
it is important that we ensure a sensible ratio of adults to children at all times. This should be ideally no more than 1 to 8. As far as it is reasonably possible, this ratio will be maintained throughout Pre-School sessions and extended to all group situations; e.g. milk time, story time, etc. Ratios differ with the under threes in our nursery but are strictly maintained.
Our Policies & Procedures are kept in our office and they may be viewed at any time. We are happy to offer copies should you require them.
We are registered by O.F.S.T.E.D to take up to 72 children at a session.
Sessions are either morning, afternoon or full day care during term time only.
We place children in groups – each group has a Key Person/Practitioner assigned to them. This is the person who parents work closely with to ensure a happy stay at Pre-School for their child.
We provide a safe, supportive learning environment where all children are valued whatever their religion, disability or gender.
Parents are always welcome!
