Welcome to Weymouth Chipmunks, running for over 13 years in Weymouth. We cater for children aged 0 - 12 years in our Nursery and Out of School Clubs. We are a OFSTED registered Nursery for 121 children. We have 5 different units covering all the different age ranges.
Our Adult to staff ratio in the Nursery is 1 adult to every 3 children in the 0-2's rooms, 1 adult to every 4 children in the 2-3's rooms, 1 adult to every 8 children in the pre-school and out of school clubs.
All units follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and cover the areas of learning through our planning both indoors and outdoors. The children all have their own individual files which follow them through the nursery and are available for all parents/carers to see.
We hold regular parents evenings where you can come along and speak to your child's key worker and see their work and their progress. We have a open door policy so you are able to speak to management or staff at a drop of a hat. We value all comments and take them on board to help us keep up a good standard of practice as parents/carers ideas,opinions and comments are paramount to us.
We currently have an average of 25 staff working for us at Chipmunks ranging in qualifications from NVQ Level 2 up to NVQ Level 4 in Child Care. All room leaders hold a qualification of at least a Level 3 in Child Care, and the percentage of staff hold a paediatric first aid certificate.
Copies of all Nursery Policies and Procedures are available in the Office of the Nursery, copies of numerous policies being displayed throughout the Nursery. Safeguarding and Child Protection along with our Mobile Phones policy are just a few of these along with Behaviour Management and our Fire policies.
