About Us

About Fable
  • Committed to working in partnership with parents

    We are committed to working in partnership with parents, the enhancement of each child’s well being, development and progress is paramount in all that we do. 

    We recognise parents as the first and most important educators of their child. We seek to involve parents in the development and education of their child in order to support them in this vital role.

    We welcome parents in to the day care ensuring that there is a two-way flow of information, knowledge an expertise. Practitioners have a wealth of knowledge and  are on hand to support you throughout your child’s time at Dinky Ducks, offering advice with behaviour, speech, sleep or potty training (supported by our home learning bags) or simply just offering a listening ear when needed. 

     

     

  • Learning Journal recordingactivities and interests

    Each child has a learning journal where the key person records what their key children are doing and what their interests are. This is done through observations which are taken by all practitioners throughout the nursery day and allow the key person to plan for your child’s individual interests. When recording how each child is developing, practitioners look at the next steps for each child’s development. This is is recorded termly on their tracking progress record by the key person working in partnership with the parents . We also use a tool called PRAMS to support us in tracking all children’s progress. All of this ensure’s we continue to meet our aims of meeting each child’s individual learning and development needs.

     

  • Additional facilities and services

    We have a library and sensory room on site both of which are part of the Children’s Centre. The children access the library regularly and we encourage children to borrow books to take home. The sensory room is used by trained staff to support individual small groups of children and individual children. Parents can also arrange to access this room with their children through the Children Centre.

    We work in close partnership with the local health visiting team and we are able to take babies and children to the Health Visiting weigh in clinic at the Children Centre on a Thursday at the parents request.
