Developing the confidence and capability of your child

Learning And Development Centre Manchester, CheshireWe are dedicated in supporting the on-going development of children in our care through;

  • Personal engagement from our experienced staff.
  • Structured routines for play, learning and social activity.
  • Free play to encourage the development of each child’s own imagination and creativity.
  • Relaxed and comfortable facilities to suit the needs of different age ranges.
  • Age appropriate toys and equipment.

Our aim is to develop your child’s communication skills, creativity, self expression, curiosity, self-esteem and confidence.

Once you have chosen Paintpots “your child’s learning journey begins”. We carefully follow the “Early Years Foundation Stage” guidelines playing close attention to the 7 areas of learning.  Your child will be assigned a key worker who will be responsible for their care and development.  Individual planning will be designed around your child’s needs providing them with a happy and stimulating environment.

Since 2015, we have adopted the on-line learning software, Tapestry, as we have endeavoured to improve the learning and development of our children. Initially launched at our Manchester setting we extended it to our Cheshire setting and then the others in 2016.

The software has the advantage of allowing us to form better links with our parents through an online parents portal and also better track that our children are meeting the learning and development goals. Parents can also contribute to the online ‘learning journey’ enhancing the child’s experience at the Nursery.

Our staff are trained and encouraged to promote the individual learning of all children. We pride ourselves on getting the children to express themselves and to develop confidence with ultimate aim of getting them ‘school ready’ for their reception year entry to Primary school.

In our Manchester setting we make contact with schools al over the North-West and make sure that this transition goes smoothly, whereas at Newall Green and at Hartford in Cheshire the contact with Primary schools is generally much more localised. In all cases, after what has hopefully been a wonderful experience at one of our Day Nurseries, we make sure the next step goes smoothly too.
