Food for Thought
Wash hands & Breakfast Time 7.30 – 8.30am:
Children will use one-handed tools and independently self-serve and eat
breakfast of their choice. This will encourage them to manage their own needs. Children will also develop a sense of community within the nursery as they will join up with other rooms for breakfast.
Lunch Time 12.00 noon:
Children will learn awareness of their own needs regarding eating and hygiene, they will learn social skills by enjoying being with and talking to other children and their key person.
Children will also learn to be independent by washing their hands before and after and self-serving their own dinner in Toddler and Pre-School Rooms. This will support them to learn problem solving skills.
Children will learn about their health and bodily awareness with regards to eating and hygiene. They will develop a range of healthy practices by learning about healthy foods and drinks.
Throughout the day we will also encourage the children to become independent with their toilet routines, having drinks and snacks. This will develop skills in the prime areas of learning – personal, social and emotional development, physical development and communication and language as they will manage their own personal hygiene, learn about healthy practices and eating needs as well as interact socially with others.
Meals, snacks and drinks:
We aim to provide a choice of healthy nutritious hot lunches followed by fruit, yoghurt or a cooked pudding which is prepared daily.
A balanced healthy breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks are provided for the children attending a full day. Children will also receive a selection of fruit mid-morning.
Menus are planned in advance, rotated regularly and reflect cultural diversity and variation. These are displayed for children and parents to view.
What Our Families are Saying
The nursery provides a fantastic, loving environment...
Choosing a nursery whilst Covid restrictions were in place was quite a challenge, however as soon as we walked into Hayleys Little Comets we felt that this nursery was right for our son. We got a really homely feeling. The nursery provides a fantastic, loving environment and Jaxon continues to thrive.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful, Jaxon often talks about them at home along with his friends and always talks about what he has been doing that day.
We thank you for helping Jaxon grow and for keeping him in a safe and loving setting.
I highly recommend and have no hesitation in giving Hayleys Little Comets the 5 stars they deserve.
We can't recommend Hayley enough
Our kid joined Hayleys Little Comets Day Nursery ealry September 2022. The way they manage the nursery is amazing. Starting with the great hospitality when we called the nursery to start the process to join our kid and take the free 15 hours from the council. They were very supportive and very fast. Our kid struggle to adapt to the new environment, but Hayley and Helen are very supportive and patient. Now he is enjoing every time he goes there.
The nursery App is fabulous and it has all the details you need about your kid, in addition to the regular photos the add to our son.
We can't recommend Hayley enough.
We can't recommend Hayley enough! xxxx started going to Hayley's at the end of my maternity leave, and was really apprehensive about returning to work and xxxx not being with me. The thought of leaving our precious little bundle of joy with someone we didn't really know was terrifying!
Hayley is thoughtful, kind, trustworthy and has gone above and beyond. She held a wonderful event for Christmas in the street with reindeers and party bags for the children...
Hayley has looked after out son xxxx since he was 10 months old (now 25 months) and I couldn't recommend her enough. I found the whole prospect of finding child care nerve wrecking as it was the first and only time we've had to do it so we weren't sure what to expect, but tht from the moment we met Hayley, we felt comfortable and we can say that it's the best decision we have ever made...
Hayley and her childcare setting came highly recommended by a relative. This was also supported by positive reviews from current parents. After conducting our research, my partner and I added Hayley's Little Comets to our list of childcare settings to view...
