Lynmore House Nursery is owned by Pemberton Childcare Ltd. Lynmore operates from a private house with a large fully enclosed garden. The property is situated a short distance from Harpenden railway station, town centre and convenient for anyone living or working in this area.
Classes of children from age 18 months to 5 years are catered for in a safe, secure, stimulating, happy and homely environment, which is considered most important for children who are not yet of school age and may be leaving their parents for the first time.
We aim for the nursery years to be happy, challenging and fulfilling. So that when the children move on to primary education they will be confident learners who take pleasure in learning and achievement.
Partnership with Parents
Lynmore sees the care and education of children as a joint partnership between parents and staff, in taking forward the child’s learning and development. We also welcome parents’ input with regard to your child’s interests, by building on what they already know and can do.
Working together for your children
We maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set by the Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements. This helps us to:
- Give time and attention to each child
- Talk with the children about their interests and activities
- Help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide
- Allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.
Key person and your child settling in
Lynmore uses a key person approach. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom she/he is particularly responsible. Your child’s key person will be the person who works with you to make sure that the childcare that we provide is right for your child’s particular needs and interests. When your child first starts at the setting, she/he will help your child to settle and throughout your child’s time at the setting, she/he will help your child to benefit from the setting’s activities.
We want your child to feel happy and safe with us therefore when settling in, you will be able to stay with your child until she/he settles in, after which we will encourage you to leave for short periods of time. Children quickly learn that nursery is a fun and friendly place to be.
The setting’s timetable and routines
Our setting believes that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:
- Help each child to feel that she/he is a valued member of the setting, ensure the safety of each child, help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group, provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.
