Playdays Lingfield is a 44 a day place day nursery in a former village school situated on the main A22 road between East Grinstead and Godstone, we cater for children from 6 weeks to five years. We first opened in 2007 and have gone from strength to strength building up a great team of qualified, dedicated and passionate carers. We pride ourselves in offering flexible childcare to accommodate our families between the hours of 7:30am – 6pm 51 weeks of the year, including a holiday club for children up until their 8th birthday during school holidays.
At Playdays Nursery Lingfield, we like to ensure we are abatable to your needs. We understand that having flexible childcare is one of the key things parents look for when choosing a setting this is why we offer flexible childcare and have a variety of sessions on offer including term time only sessions for all ages.
Within our baby room, we have qualified, experienced practitioners who specialise in the care and development of babies.
During the early settling-in process we allocate each child a key worker; this allows the child to build a confident and secure bond with a practitioner to support them whilst settling, therefore making the experience of starting nursery a happy and smooth process for both the child and parents. Your child’s allocated key-worker will spend some time with you and your child getting to know you and your child’s daily routine to ensure that these can be well embedded during their time at nursery. The baby room carers give each child opportunities to take part in a variety of stimulating activities based on their own individual interests, they do this by closely observing the children and taking the time to get to know each child.
Our toddler room is a fun filled and energetic room which provides a stimulating environment for children to learn, develop and feel safe and secure whilst at nursery. We focus on developing the children’s self-help and independence in this room and spend time on making potty training, dressing, feeding and communicating fun for all
children. Practitioners care for no more than 4 children at any one time and each child will be assigned a key worker who will work together with the parents to build the independence of each child.
Your child’s key-worker will use planned activities that are focused around the Early Years Foundation Stage using indoor and outdoor environments as we value the importance of outdoor play.
Our Pre-school children have a large double room with free-flow access to the garden at all times giving the children the freedom to choose where they wish to play. Pre-school are provided with educational activities throughout the day helping them to realise their full potential and enjoy a love of learning.
At Huggetts we encourage nursery values and to respect our teachers and friends. Within our Pre-school unit we have a qualified
team of carer’s that specialise in the care and learning of Pre-school children with a ratio of 1 carer to 8 children. Your child’s key-worker will get to know their interests, abilities, likes and dislikes and their preferred way of learning to ensure that when planning activities for the children they are engaged so their full learning potential is maximised.
Playdays Nursery Lingfield follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5.
This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born, up until the age of 5, their early year’s experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.
Our nursery offers the finest education and childcare for children aged from three months to the time they go to school. For further information, request our parent pack below.
