We are a small, friendly setting offering a caring, nurturing environment in the country. We aim to provide a homely environment in which each child is valued for themselves and helped to develop to their full potential. We cater for children aged 18 months -5 years and offer funded places for 2,3 and 4 year olds. Esklets delivers the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Our purpose-built classroom is sited within a very large outdoor area. Our garden contains a mud kitchen, digging area, ‘jungle’, raised beds and lawn. The playground contains an ‘all weather sandpit’, junk construction area, sensory area, water play, woodwork, role-play sheds and space to ride bikes and run freely.
We have close links with the local primary schools and the local community.
Our well qualified staff have worked in childcare for many years and have vast experience and knowledge of the profession. Esklets offers diverse and inclusive childcare and staff have undertaken additional training in such things as Makaton signing to help them meet the needs of all the children.
At our last OFSTED inspection in July 2014 we were rated as GOOD with some outstanding areas.
