A Typical Tooties Day

Morning

We will be there ready from 7:30 onwards to welcome parents and children and to make comfortable as much as we can for our little guests. We will get to know your child well through play and care, breakfast is offered between 8 and 8:30. After breakfast the children will start with the playtime inside or in the garden.

Lunchtime

For full day and morning session children will be provided with a delicious homemade lunch. We place a great importance in eating altogether, talking about our meal, and making it a relaxing and enjoyable time for everyone. All the meals are freshly made using fresh ingredients at the daycare

Afternoon

Throughout the afternoon your child will enjoy a range of activities designed to enable them to play and explore, discover and grow, learn and understand. Every activity will be tailored to their liking and they will be encouraged to build confidence and understanding through praise, recognition and support

Hometime

When you arrive to collect your child, We will be available to share any information about their day. Every child at the daycare will have a daily report with the daily activity each day your child attends, which includes activities, interests, food intake and sleep and how they are developing.

Is it normal for children to cry at the beginning?

 Crying is a very natural and healthy response to the love they have experienced at home. We make sure that all transitions are tailored to their character and progress.

What is the curriculum

Our curriculum allows children to explore and learn in an environment that is secure and safe, yet challenging. Play opportunities are non-stereotypical and available to all children promoting the teaching and learning from a skilled workforce.

What are your health and safety procedures?

There is always a small chance that an incident might occur, but we try to minimize the risk as much as we can. If a child shows certain symptoms we will send them home, as part of our “exclusion for illness” policy. We stick to strict sanitary schedules and a safe-hire procedure for all our colleagues in the preschools.

Will Tootsie Daycare help with potty training?

Yes! Potty training will be included as part of everyday learning.

What Our Families are Saying

 

I was drawn to Princess’s friendly and warm personality and impressed by her willingness to contribute to the group especially when she stepped in to lead the nursery rhyme singing sessions.
When I have visited Princess’s home I have seen how well resourced it is for the provision of Early Years care and how well Princess provides a large variety of activities especially crafts and reading stories aloud. The children in my setting loved play dates with Princess and Julio out of lockdown. She is very creative and enthusiastic. I wish her all the best in her career in Early Years.

Princess has been looking after our son josh for approximately 1 year and 6 months to present. Taking him to school and collecting him, always giving him meal when required. She is always on time, she is actually consistently 10 minutes early.

Princess has even gone out of her way to care for Josh when he has been unwell, when we have had work commitments.  In my opinion she is the type of person who goes above and beyond to help others. We see her as family now and a close friend.
