Here in Kelloe Phoenix Centre we will ensure that children and their families will be offered a safe and stimulating environment within which children can have fun, be happy and flourish. Kelloe Phoenix Centre is situated in the grounds of Kelloe Community Primary School, and shares its premises with the local Sure Start Centre. Kelloe Phoenix Centre is a Limited Company, providing high quality, reliable childcare for children from the age of birth to 11 years.

Children from 0 to 2 will be given a home/nursery diary which will be used by staff to record what the child has done that day, any sleeps they may have had and any nappy changes. It can also be used to convey messages from nursery staff to parents. All children will be assigned a key person. This is a member of staff who is responsible for a particular child or group of children. A picture of your child’s Key Person will be displayed on the Key Person board in the corridor and in the front of their Learning Journey.

The EYFS Framework states that; “Providers must inform parents and/or carers of the name of the key person, and explain their role, when a child starts attending a setting. The key person must help ensure that every child’s learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs, the key person must seek to engage and support parents and/or carers in guiding their child’s development at home. They should also help families engage with more specialist support if appropriate.”

If you would like any further information or would like to come and have a look around, please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff.
