Chipmunks Day Nurseries along with Edgefield and Claylands Out of School Clubs are registered and approved by Ofsted. We provide quality care of children between the ages of 3 months and 12 years for 51 weeks of the year with one week away for the Christmas break.
We provide a safe, warm homely environment in which all children receive equal care and attention. We ensure equal opportunities for all and operate a Key Worker system where one of our trained, qualified members of staff is allocated to each child.
Parents are encouraged to participate in the development of their children at Nursery through discussion with our staff. Records and observation sheets are always available to enable positive feedback to be given for every child.
Chipmunks properties are large Period family homes which have been specially adapted for Nursery use. The properties are arranged in separate units catering for small groups in various age ranges from babies to toddlers and finishing with pre-school. We have separate facilities for the older children who join us outside their normal school day and during holiday time.
We work in partnership with the Local Education Authority and as such are audited by the Office For Standards in Education (OFSTED) Schools Inspectorate.
