Welcome to the Panda room
The Panda room is a purpose built room, creating full time spaces for children between the age of 1 and 2 years. We have three staff dedicated to this room providing continuity of care for your child. Each child will have their own key person, who will create your child’s learning journey as a record of their time and achievements whilst they have been with us, which will follow them as they transition through the preschool.
The Panda room children will follow the same planning as the preschool children, with age appropriate activities. They will engage in sensory and messy play. We have a dedicated, secure, outdoor space for the Panda’s to explore, which we hope to expand in the near future. A quiet area, with books and new ‘state of art’ sleep coracles for nap/rest times.
Open from 8am—6pm every day, 48 weeks of the year. Closed only over the Christmas period, public bank holidays, staff inset days and the last week of August in the Summer.
Fees (with effect from 1 March 2019)
£6.50 per hour
Half Day (8am-1pm or 1pm-6pm) … £32.50
Full Day (8am-6pm) … £55.00
Full time place … £265.00 per week
We require payment to be made monthly via either childcare vouchers or, standing order on the 1st of each month. Receiving payment in this manner will ensure your child’s place with us. We will charge for each session, even if a child is absent due to sickness or holiday, as we cannot offer this session to anyone else. We reserve the right to withdraw a child’s space if continuous non payment of fees occurs.
What you need to supply:
We require you to provide your child with the following items, that should be brought in daily with your child in a small rucksack.
* Nappies * Wipes
* Nappy sacks * Nappy cream
* Spare clothes * Comforter
If your child attends with us 3 or more days per week we will provide them with their own designated basket, which you will be responsible for replenishing.
