The Willowbank Service
Willowbank Facilities include:
This room is where they are cared
for in a bright stimulating playroom equipped to meet their changing
needs. They have a separate sleep room, so soothers and comfort
objects are welcomed here.
Here they have a great selection of
indoor and outdoor toys available to encourage learning through
play. They have access to sand and water play, painting
activities, play dough, puzzles, books, dressing up and regular music
sessions which help self-expression and communication skills.
Pre-school (3-4 yrs)
In here they are
accommodated in a bright playroom structured for maximum development of
physical, intellectual and emotional learning but importantly still
After school (p1 – p7)
They play and develop at their own pace and are encouraged to do their homework if their parents wish.
If your child is drinking formula milk
please provide enough bottles for the day and if weaned we will give
mashed up dinners if desired. Staff take into account those with
special diets or food allergies and provide breakfast for those who
need it. Included is a hot lunchtime meal and a morning /
afternoon snack. We promote healthy eating; therefore sweets will
not be available but can be provided as treats on birthdays.
Although we encourage comfort toys
with the younger children, please try to discourage your child from
bringing special toys to the nursery as we cannot accept responsibility
if they are lost or broken.
Please dress your child in
non-restrictive clothes to assist with easy toileting, messy play is
encouraged so it is advisable to wear older clothes as paint sometimes
stains. A change of clothes should be left at the nursery in case
of accidents for all ages. Please label your child’s belongings
Parents are asked to be punctual
when collecting children at all times, the nursery closes at 6pm sharp
and your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.
Smoking is not permitted in the nursery.
