Happi Feet is a privately owned Nursery and Pre-School established in October 2012 catering for its local community. We are located in belvedere in Erith.
Our setting is homely, warm and friendly and aims to provide quality, affordable early childhood learning and care to children aged 3 months to 5 years, to give them the best possible start in life.
We offer a wide range of enjoyable early educational childhood activities, pre-school lessons and other learning resources.
Here at happi feet, We have 5 spacious, bright, well equipped, child friendly rooms and an outdoor area were your child can explore and learn through play. Our staff ratio is high in all the rooms, exceeding Ofsted recommendations.
We are open Monday to Friday from 7.00 am to 6.30 pm, for fifty weeks of the year with the exception of bank holidays and two weeks at christmas.
We offer pick-up and drop-off services to local residents.
Each child is valued as a unique individual and we work to meet the individual needs of all the children at our nursery.
Our Early Years provision is of a consistently high standard, and we continually look for ways to improve the quality of the learning, development and care we offer.
We plan our daily activities using the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We organize a balance of child-initiated and adult-led play-based activities that ensure every child receives an enjoyable and challenging learning and development experience as well as allowing plenty of opportunities to play and inter-react with other children.
Staff give children the support and attention they need to promote their learning and ensure they are generally well occupied. The development of each child is monitored closely in development records which are completed on a regular basis. We use these records to identify learning priorities for each child and to plan activities that will help them make further progress in all areas of learning.
Each child is assigned a member of staff who becomes their 'key person'. The key person leads the assessment and planning and works closely with the parents to ensure the child’s welfare, learning and development needs are met effectively.
Relationship with parents
Here at Happi Feet, we strive to form strong partnerships with parents and carers. Our Staff find out about each child’s background, needs and interests to ensure that each child is fully included and cared for effectively.
Parents and carers are well informed of our policies and procedures which are displayed in the nursery. We use newsletters, notice boards and displays to keep parents informed of our children's daily experience.
Parents are able to speak to the staff on a daily basis about their child’s care, view their progress records and experience how their child learns through play.
Our well-qualified and experienced staff are enthusiastic and share the vision to improve outcomes for all children. Staff are encouraged to develop their knowledge and skills by attending further training. We conduct regular staff appraisals to assess their performance and address any areas for development.
