Little Moonbeams provides the very highest standard of care, inclusive of all extras, all delivered during term time by kind caring people.
2 months – 2 years
Moonbeams babies are happy babies. At Moonbeams we pride ourselves on providing a schedule of care as unique as your little one. Because of our key carer system, no two Moonbeams babies have exactly the same schedule. Before your baby begins their Moonbeams journey, we get to know them in short taster sessions. We use this time to understand their individual needs, and understand the key carer with whom they develop the greatest bond. This is how Moonbeams babies quickly develop a trusting and secure relationship in our homely and warm environment. So whether at messy play, enjoying story time or setting off for a really important crawl, Moonbeams babies really are happy babies.
3 years – big school
Ready toddlers? Steady preschoolers? It’s go time! Whether exploring the great outdoors through garden time and our regular trips out, or understanding the world through arts and crafts, the children start to really develop their fine motor skills and understanding of the world around them. As is the Moonbeams way, there’s always time to play. We have replaced the plastic toys in the nursery with little treasures from the natural world to encourage creativity through open ended play. It’s not a pile of buttons and gems, it’s a pirate’s treasure trove! (disclaimer – it’s a pile of buttons and gems). This is a small group where the children receive real carer attention and develop strong relationships with our wonderful staff. Before heading to school we spend time helping children develop the skills they’ll need on this exciting next step. After graduation day, (yes there are mortar boards and gowns), we work closely with your child’s school to set them up for their next big adventure.
Whatever your child’s dietary requirements, our resident Chef Sian delivers a daily menu that uses fresh ingredients delivered daily to create a varied and nutritionally balanced menu that your children will love. From sticky BBQ chicken and rice noodles, vegetable lasagne with potato wedges to homemade spiced apple cake and fruits of the forest crumble, there’s always a buzz around at Moonbeams mealtimes.
