We re-opened on Monday 7th September 2020.
We are following government guidelines 'Actions for Early Years and Childcare providers during the coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak to ensure the safety for children, staff and parents.
Humpty Dumpty Playgroup is proud to announce we have achieved Outstanding in Personal development, behaviour and welfare from Ofsted in May 2019.
Humpty Dumpty Playgroup recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children. All staff see themselves as partners with parents in providing care and education for their children.
Play helps young children to learn and develop through doing and talking, which research has shown to be the means by which young children learn to think.
Humpty Dumpty Playgroup follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum guidance, to plan and provide a range of child and adult-led play activities, which help children to make progress in each of the 7 areas of learning and development.
Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our friendly Early Years team helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development. All our staff hold qualifications from Cache Level 3 to Qualified Teacher Status.
Each child's learning is individually tailored by using a key-person system. The staff member observes their key-child, and assesses their development through an online Learning Journal called 'Tapestry'. From the observations, the staff member implements activities for that child. Every child is unique, and all activities implemented can be differentiated to support each child's learning and development.
All children are able to receive the universal 15 hours of government funding the term after their 3rd birthday.
Parents can also apply for additional 15 hours of funding. We are able to accommodate children who receive the full 30 hours of funding. Parent's are able to check eligibility by using the online childcare calculator www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator and if eligible, submit an online application. Once signed up, you will receive an 11 digit code which the playgroup will validate.
