All of our Tiddlywinks Day Nursery branches and Out Of School Clubs have recently been inspected within the last 18 months and all inspections achieved ‘Outstanding’ with Ofsted. Our aim is to provide a High-Quality Childcare service ensuring your child will be in a warm, professional, secure and caring environment. We have continually and successfully developed and have been recognised for our standards and dedication to childcare through national initiatives including Investors in Children, Investors in People, Quality in Play and locally through Manchester’s QAF award. By offering families a high quality, flexible, child centred service where parents can be confident in the care and education their child will receive with us. We ensure each child’s individual needs and interests are catered for, enabling your children to grow and develop into confident and capable young learners by implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage within each setting. The EYFS, is a framework for children from birth up to the age of 5 years old, and the framework sets out seven key areas of learning around which we base our daily planning and focused activities. This framework is crucially important for children’s development and their progress whilst at Tiddlywinks, hence the reason we heavily invested on a childcare software suited for the EYFS and each member of staff has an Android device to guide them on the progress of each child in their key-group. The main focus of the software is upon the daily activities and observations for the children which can be viewed instantly by the parents whether they’re at home or in work. We have regular visits from City in the Community who engage in small groups of exercise and physical movements to help the children develop their motor skills. The sessions also teach children how to share with their friends in groups and enables children to understand the importance of exercise and being healthy.
