Merryvale follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for all the children throughout the setting.
We have a maximum of twelve under two’s at any one time with a staff ratio of one to two, higher than is required but we feel that our babies do better with a close relationship with an adult.
Shelley is the Supervisor for all the under 2yrs olds and is very experienced and also our SENCO. She is very passionate about her role and is always happy to talk to and advise parents about any concerns they may have.
Settling in visits are very important to both children and parents. We like you to bring your child for a few visits to allow staff children and parents to become acquainted. We like you to stay for the first visit, usually about half an hour followed by the child staying alone for aout half a hour on their next visit. These visits can continue until everyone is happy, there is no charge for these preliminary visits.
