Our philosophy at the Childcare Centre is that children are active learners in the Early Years Foundation Stage and they learn best though play. We believe each child deserves the best possible start in life, and that children who experience high quality early years provision achieve better outcomes and develop abilities that are needed to become lifelong learners.
We believe all children have the right to be understood as individuals and to be given time and opportunity to develop as creative, competent learners in an inspiring environment, with lots of access to the outdoors.
Our vision is to create a place that values caring, respectful relationships and make the voice of the child central to everything.
A child’s first step into nursery is also a first step to independence; at Bridgwater & Taunton College Childcare Centre our goal is to encourage that independence through educational activities that are fun and stimulating. It is a big, exciting world out there and we want children to leave for their next steps in life, equipped for the journey.
The nursery is open from 8am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, all year round except bank holidays, two weeks over Christmas, and designated training days.
We are extremely proud of our OFSTED outstanding rating and hope that you will take a look at our facilities.
OFSTED are the regulatory body for schools and childcare providers – they set out the education framework and then conduct inspections to ensure each provider meets the required standards. An OFSTED inspection can take place at any time and without notice.
We do not just want to meet the OFSTED national standard; we only ever want to exceed it.
