Your child learns more from adults who smile. That's why at Jumping Jo's you will always be greeted by a friendly face.
Another interesting fact is that your child learns more in the first 1000 days of their life, than they do in the rest of their lifetime. That is why education in baby room is so important.
Children learn as they play, but more importantly in play children learn how to learn.
We love to work with parents to promote the development of each individual child. We ask parents to make a contribution the their learning journey as much as possible and will send home learning packs to support the targets we have set for the child for that month. We are available at any time for parents to have a chat with and aim to be here as much for them as we are for the children.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we haven't been allowing the parents to enter the children's rooms. However, we still greet them in the hallway and try to give in depth feedback about the child's day.
Using the class dojo app, parents are able to see what their child has been doing and can use it as a way to communicate with the staff.
Although we have a set routine, we are flexible and will follow each individual child's routine to support and meet their needs. We will ask you to fill in a care plan when your child enters the setting. This is then used to support your child.
We try to ensure that all children's routines are supported individually as much as possible. Most children sleep after lunch, but again, we will follow what the child needs. We have sleep mats and also a bouncer and a swing, so can offer a comfortable resting spot for all of the children.
We offer a wide range of foods on the menu, and accommodate dietary needs where needed. We encourage baby led weaning, but staff are always happy to spoon feed if that is parental preference
Free play is a great opportunity for the little ones to explore the environment, and can access the resources whenever they like.
The children enjoy playing out in the garden, and exploring.
