Twinkles White Rose Nursery
In 2014, the purpose-built, on-site nursery, Twinkles White Rose nursery opened its doors to support working parents and families and offers excellent quality child care right in the heart of the office park. At White Rose Office Park, we believe that our residents should be supported in every aspect of their life, in order to perform in their working life. We understand that being a working parent can be challenging at times, with the added struggle of finding high-quality, affordable and trustworthy child care.
Twinkles White Rose Nursery is part of the award-winning Twinkles Nurseries Group and brings with it nearly 20 years experience, knowledge and expertise in childcare. Twinkles provides a happy, safe and welcoming environment where your child will enjoy rich, stimulating activities appropriate to their age and stage of development. Twinkles believe that every child is unique, naturally curious and eager to learn about the world around them and their dedicated and passionate practitioners will support your child, enabling them to reach their full potential, after all, they are building the stars of the future!
Twinkles learning through play approach allows them to meet your child’s needs and extend their learning and development whilst encouraging their curiosity about the big wide world. They invest in ensuring that the environment is equipped with resources to help your child make good progress in their learning and development. As well as four rooms, each specifically for a different age range from babies up to pre-school, there is also a huge garden, that’s securely enclosed and offers a range of experiences for everyone. There’s outdoor sandpits, a cosy den and roads for the bikes and trikes. An outdoor mud kitchen means there’s lots of opportunity for making tasty mud pies and the large construction site with lots of open-ended resources helps to develop both imagination and physical skills as children create their own transport, buildings and obstacle courses. Direct access from each of the rooms means children can move freely from the indoor to the outdoor environment.
A well balanced and nutritious diet is vital to a child’s development. At Twinkles the onsite chefs prepare fresh, healthy, tasty and nutritious meals for the children daily. The four weekly menus have been carefully put together to meet the needs of children, using the guidance provided by the British Nutrition Foundation and they even use vegetables grown out in the nursery garden.
Twinkles really value parents input and will work closely with you to ensure that you’re kept up to date with your child’s progress. A tailored made approach to learning means that your child will be fully supported across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and you’ll be invited to attend regular Parent Partnership Meetings with your child’s Key Person. An online Journey records your child’s progress at nursery and you’ll get photographs and observations so you can see what your child’s been up to. You can log in anytime and even add your own pictures from home. Twinkles hold regular Stay and Play Sessions throughout the year, so mums, dads, grandparents and siblings can go along to take part in themed activities sessions and join in the fun.
