About Us

History

Building Blocks Kindergarten opened in October 2000 and is owned by Claire Reece-Hamshere, who planned and designed Building Blocks Kindergarten for almost four years. The objective was to provide quality childcare facilities for children aged 6 weeks to 12 years. The nursery has been purpose built with all aspects of children’s safety and comfort in mind as well as a stimulating and exciting environment. It is our aim to provide the highest possible standard of care. We have now extended registration up to 13 years.

Our Ways

The nursery is separated into 3 individual units so that each of the age groups can feel secure and develop as a group and alongside their peers. Each of the units carefully plans the children’s activities according to their age and developmental stage, which is designed to be fun, stimulating and of course educational at the same time.  All children now follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum from birth.

Who We Are

Every member of staff has been carefully screened and police checked to ensure their suitability.  All but two of the nursery staff hold a level 3 childcare qualification. Those that don’t have many many years of experience working within the Early Years Sector.

The owner has a degree in Early Childhood Studies and is a qualified Early Years Professional/ Teacher, allowing the team to be lead by a practitioner who has specialist training in the Early Years. She is supported by the deputy manager who holds the Advanced Diploma in Childcare Education along with a staff member who specialises in children with special educational needs.

It has an extensive CCTV system throughout the nursery, four individual gardens with safety surface flooring, exceptional outdoor play equipment and large private parking for parents and staff.

We work very closely with you as parents and aim to provide the very best quality care and education for your children. Knowing that you have complete peace of mind when leaving your children at Building Blocks Kindergarten is a priority for us and we look forward to building a relationship with you and your child.

We hope that our website contains all of the information that you need. Any of our friendly staff will be able to help you or show you around at any time.
