Nursery Life.

Ready, Set, Bake!!!!!!

Our Children and Staff have enjoyed a week celebrating the Royal Wedding. As part of this each room participated in a 'Great British Royal Wedding Bake Off!' where each room entered a Royal Wedding or British themed cake, where one room would be crowned Star Baker! The cakes were fantastic (as you can see from the pictures) and the Winning cake was the Union Jack and American Flag. All cakes tasted amazing with special recognition for the Lemon and Elderflower icing and the vegan free ice-cream cone cakes. All the staff and children enjoyed tasting the cakes and celebrating the Royal Wedding.

They are responsible for your child’s individual needs and known as the ‘key person’. The key person is your main point of contact however all nursery staff are happy to feedback on your child’s developmental progress on a daily basis or discuss any concerns with you. They will also keep records of your child’s progress and achievement, which are always available for you to see and contribute towards.

Your child’s key person will make time to find out from you about your child’s interests, likes, dislikes and special requirements. Please share any important or useful information when you register your child and throughout their time with us. This helps us to give your child the most appropriate care and learning to suit their developmental, emotional and physical needs. You can access and contribute your views to your child's progress and achievements in their records.

" My children have been coming to Doddington Green for a period of almost 5 years now - and they've both absolutely loved their time there. Staff are friendly and caring - they're never short of a cuddle in the morning (or any time of day!). My children have had so much fun playing and doing activities, whilst learning along the way. My eldest is now at school - but everything he'd learnt at Doddington prepared him really well for school life, and eased his transition - especially as he stayed at the nursery instead of going to pre-school. The food served each day is healthy - it's always advertised on the board each day what they've eaten, and there's always fruit for snack time. Recently they've started taking the children on excursions to the park, Birmingham Library, and the seaside, which is fab! Overall, if you're looking for a local, friendly, reasonably priced nursery to send your child to; I'd recommend Doddington Green" Parent Feedback August 2018

" Brilliant nursery with lovely staff. My daughter has very much enjoyed her time at Doddington Nursery". Extremely likely to recommend. Parent Feedback August 2018

" My son attends Doddington and I cannot fault the nursery. My son loves going and has learnt so much since starting there. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They've organised trips and the practical activities they do are so educational for the children. I would definitely recommend this nursery to any parent." Parent Feedback August 2018
