Hand in Hand Day Nursery is a modern, private setting that offers compassionate, professional care for children in a fun, learning environment. Catering for ages 0-5, the nursery is opening hours are 7.30am – 6pm and we offer a range of flexible times and sessions to suit the needs of both parent and child.
The nursery is located in a brand new facility close to Erdington’s six ways island – extremely convenient for commuting and local parents alike.
Dedicated Baby Room (ages 0-2)
We understand that babies need special care and attention, that’s why we have a specially created room just for them. Many mothers need to return to work after maternity leave and in such cases our main concern
is for the transition from the home environment to nursery care. With big windows offering natural light, bright walls and toys a plenty, little ‘crawlers’ are kept safe and happy in a secure area of their own. Close, individual attention, including lots of cuddles, is given to all of the babies.
The room also has clean, new cots for sleeping and a learning plan specially designed for children aged 0-2.
This room is a busy, fun, learning environment with special play zones, a reading corner and sleeping zone. Having learnt about interaction with their peers, we encourage the children to extend their vocabulary, especially through singing, conversation and storytelling. We want children to be comfortable and forward in expressing themselves to become confident with other children as well as with adults.
The staff at this stage concentrate their planning on providing an enjoyable activities with learning outcomes and incorporating outdoor play.
For our older children, we provide a large spacious room with play zones and a dedicated learning classroom. We teach the children to have good manners and encourage a good standard of behaviour that is considerate to others and their environment. Routines now become more formalised in preparation for their eventual transition to School.
Independence skills and self-awareness becomes more prevalent at this age as the children grow more and more to believe in themselves and what they are capable of.
We encourage the children to access our fantastic outdoor play area every day. We provide opportunities for exploration within their outdoor environment as well as encouraging and promoting exercise. We grow plants and vegetables which enable the children to plan, plot and feed their own ingredients and then cook up a healthy tea using their own harvest.
