Welcome to SeeSaw 1, Wingfield Road

Seesaw 1 is situated in a large Victorian house and has been open since 1988. It has extensive gardens with a small orchard.

Dressing up at Seesaw 1

On starting nursery, parents are asked to provide all relevant personal details, sign a contract of terms and conditions and familiarise themselves with our policies.   

The nursery accommodates 40 children ranging from 9 months to 10 years old. The after-school club meet in the basement, the tiny tots on the ground floor and the pre-school on the first floor.

Although the nursery is open 50 weeks a year, children can attend school term time only and no retainer fee is charged.

Similarly, children can attend from 8am to 6pm or for part time hours.  We take children who want to attend for government entitlement only, for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.  Some parents can also access up to 30 funded hours a week, although we offer a maximum of 26 hours a week but over 48 weeks of the year. Eligibility criteria can be discussed with us or through HMRC.  We are also in receipt of the pupil premium and workplace vouchers.

Children are given drinks and snacks throughout the day, which may include wholemeal bread, milk, fruit, raisins etc. We cook lunches and tea for children or they can bring a packed lunch box. We have a healthy eating policy! 

We welcome parents to stay and settle their children before they leave them.  This can be useful in the early days.  We also have open days, outings, celebrations, etc that we hope parents will participate in.

Welcome back

Hope you all had a lovely Easter break! And I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new families; if you have any questions please come and see me. But I hope you are all looking forward to an exciting term.

Pre-school Topic

The children will be learning about growing this term; they will be taking parts in lots of planting activities and will be making a Jack and the Beanstalk role play area. If you have any expertise in the area of gardening and would like to give some time to help with the planting please speak to Chloe.

Pre-school Farm Trips

It’s that time of year when we be planning our annual farm trip to Stowford Manor Farm; where the children will get to meet some of the animals; have a go on the tractors and hopefully a dip in the river! So please keep your diaries free and look out for the poster for more details.

Open evening

This will be taking place on Thursday24th May; it is an opportunity to come and watch some video clips of the children’s activities to see how we teach through play. And there will be other display to look at and speak to your child’s key person if you wish.

Hopefully we will start to see an improvement in the weather over the next few weeks; some please can I remind parent’s that they will need to bring a labelled sun hat and sun cream (if you use a particular brand) otherwise we can supply it.

Face book

Please can I remind parent’s that we have a closed facebook page to inform you of any events and dates etc; as well as for posting photos of the children during the week at nursery.

Open Day

We will be holding an open day on Saturday 9thJune between 10am till 12pm; if you know anybody with young children who may be looking for a nursery space. Please tell them to come along!

Summer Leavers Party – For all Pre-school Children

Our leaver’s party will be held on Thursday 19thJuly from 9.00am until 11.30 am at Seesaw Nursery 1; there will be lots of fun including bouncy castle, face painting and ice creams. If this is your child’s normal session then they can be accompanied by member of staff; however if it is not your child’s session they will need to be accompanied by an adult. Hope to see you all there!

School Leavers

If you have received confirmation for your child’s school admission in September; please could you let Oonagh or Chloe know. It is this time of year that we have visits from the reception class teachers; and it is much easier to arrange if we know in advance.
