We are delighted to announce The Teepee was 10 years old on Monday 1st July. We are very proud of our journey at the nursery over this time. We’ve made great strides in our childcare journey ever since. Some of our nursery highlights are
- becoming Outstanding, the only nursery in Bracknell to do so.
- getting our Investors in People accreditation, twice!
- having practitioners in the nursery who are qualified to Level 6 standard.
- Setting up MyChild – a ground breaking portal to share information and photos with parents.
- a bespoke newsletter system, so we talk to parents only about their child’s room and diary dates.
- specialist classes every day of the week.
- a healthy menu, cooked on site daily.
- working with a health and safety consultancy to continue to improve our standards.
- refurbishing the nursery inside and out .
- doing home visits for all new families and even when changing rooms
- running a rigorous induction, refresher and internal training programme for us as a team.
- offering termly meetings to all parents – these are just a few of our highlights.
But the best is yet to come, we never stand still and we are always trying for more and we are working on a number of things at the moment
- the allotment is blossoming
- we are in the process of recruiting a qualified teacher to work full time in the nursery
- we are going through a system of research based audits, which will continue to help us review and reflect on our practice
- we are working to review our standards against the ROSPA Awards
- we are undertaking a menu review.
Thank you everyone, team, children and parents past and present for 10 amazing years and looking forward to the next ones.
