In a world of increasing technology, offering children a childhood full of play and active engagement is more important than ever. At Treehouse Nursery, the staff believe in children learning through play, creative expression and interacting with the world.
Treehouse Nursery, established in 1991, aims to create a constructive environment for children to develop their own identity. The organisation now has three locations in Wanstead; Treehouse Nursery Woodbine Place, Treehouse Nursery Cambridge Park and a Breakfast, After School and Holiday Club which are hosted at Grove Hall. With more than 20 years in childcare behind them, they are now a recognised and reputable organisation in Wanstead.
Inclusion is vital at Treehouse Nursery, and all children’s needs are cared for. Treehouse Nursery welcomes every child through their doors, and makes the appropriate requirements for children with physical disabilities and special needs.
Treehouse Nursery works closely with local authority, and together they provide Special Educational Needs co-ordinators for children who require additional support throughout nursery. Treehouse Nursery also allocates a member of staff called a ‘Key Person’ to every child at the nursery, who helps children settle in. This ‘Key Person’ and the Special Educational Needs co-ordinators work together to make sure children are progressing well.
This ‘Key Person’ approach helps to establish a feeling of safety and security for children at Treehouse Nursery; the ‘Key Person’ closely liaises with each child’s parents or carers to make sure they are fully informed of each child’s personality and situation. This encourages a feeling of kinship between everyone involved with Treehouse Nursery, and makes sure that all children feel as comfortable as possible.
All of Treehouse Nursery’s activities are focused around engaging all of the children, and offer a range of indoor and outdoor activities. Treehouse Nursery’s ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ curriculum focuses on literacy, maths, expression through art and developing an understanding of the world. This curriculum is structured around each child’s individual personality and needs, and Treehouse Nursery are passionate about allowing children to develop their own independence and identity, which will prepare them for life at school.
Treehouse Nursery understands that safety comes first, and all activities adhere to the Children’s Act 1989 guidelines, and all other relevant childcare criteria. All facilities meet health and safety requirements, and no child is left unsupervised at any time. Treehouse Nursery offers parents a peace of mind and children a fantastic place to spend their early years.
