Handbook—Introduction

Play Away is a private day nursery offering full-time and part-time care to children aged between 3 months and 5 years of age. Established in 1993, Play Away has grown and has now firmly established itself as a centre offering quality childcare to families throughout Halton and the surrounding areas. At the centre of our philosophy is the desire that you can leave your baby or child with us, happy in the knowledge that they will be loved and cared for as you would wish.

Our carefully planned and co-ordinated "next steps" approach to child development, ensure that your baby or child will get the most out of their time with us both in terms of education and enjoyment. Your involvement in the activities we undertake is encouraged and welcomed and you will have open access to your child’s progress. It is through the close relationship we have with our parents that we are able to promote the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) that will over time help your little one with the transition from nursery to school.

The staff at Play Away are experienced in working with young children and are committed to ensuring that all the children get the very most out of every session, day and week. We have a strong code of equal opportunities both for the staff and children and operate a policy where everyone is treated with the same love and respect regardless of age, colour or ability.

 

We thank you for the interest you have shown in our nursery, and trust that you and your family will enjoy the time you spend with us.
