Mission Statement

To provide a homely, loving, nurturing, fun environment in which all children will be encouraged to ‘Grow and Blossom’ in their overall development and achieve their full potential.

Bethany Day Nursery History

Bethany Day Nursery was first opened in 2002 and has been providing quality day care in Eastham in a secure, nurturing and homely environment. Bethany Day Nursery has expanded and developed through the recommendations of parents and now is well known as a reputable children's nursery, meeting the needs of today’s parent’s and their children.

 

Bethany Day Nursery is situated in a detached house with a large extensive garden and play area that has been totally renovated and expanded and operates from five main rooms to meet the needs of all children aged 0-5 years old.

The Day Nursery Staff

At Bethany Day Nursery you will find a warm welcome where there is a commitment to meet the individual needs of all our families, within the nursery environment. Offering the highest standards of care and dedication to your child, staff at Bethany Day Nursery have been carefully chosen for their appropriate qualifications, relevant experience and also for their suitability and dedication to working with children within the various age groups.

 

All staff hold an up to date, enhanced C.R.B. check.  It is a requirement that anyone working at our nursery receives training and relevant approved certificates in Safe Guarding Children, First Aid and Food Hygiene. All staff are encouraged to expand their knowledge in areas of childcare and regularly attend courses run by our Early Years Department as well as in house training.

 

We aim to work in close partnership with parents where excellent communication between staff and parents ensures a smooth introduction to the nursery and close involvement in their child’s nursery experience and learning journey.

Outdoors

Our emphasis on outdoor play ensures children grow learning to appreciate nature and the outdoors. Our nature garden gives children the opportunity to plant and grow vegetables and herbs which they care for and when the time is right to prepare and eat for their own snack time.

 

In April 2010 we installed an all weather soft play area in the garden which has been invaluable in allowing the children to have fun and further learning opportunities.
