Our Rooms

Childcare at Bright Beginnings Nursery Falkirk

Baby Room(0-2 years)

In our Baby Room we have highly experienced staff whose priority is to follow the home routine of each baby as closely as possible. There is a spacious play area with a quiet and secure sleeping area. We provide a variety of stimulating activities in a caring and friendly environment in order to promote your baby’s all round development. All planning will be displayed on the room wall for you to view and see what activities and development your child will be participating in that week.

Parents are required to supply wipes, nappies and milk to ensure continuity between home and nursery for all babies. We are a breast feeding friendly nursery and will support mothers returning to work and still wishing to breast feed. Our staff are trained in the storage and use of breast milk and we welcome you visiting to feed during the day where possible.

Here at Bright Beginnings we encourage that when your baby is around 14 months and once they have found their feet we would hope to advance them to the Tweenie Room. This would take place after discussions with yourself.

Tweenie Room (0-2 years)

Children in the Tweenie Room are cared for under the supervision of qualified and experienced staff (Staff Ratio 1:3). A range of quality toys and activities are provided for the continuing development of your child.

The period in the Tweenie Room provides for a smooth transition to the toddler stage by adopting a more challenging and varied approach to the day. This will include such activities as painting, sand and water play, music, physical activity and much more. This may sound a little complicated for young children but it is possible for an eighteen month old child to play with sand and water or create a mini masterpiece with paint….and they love it!!

Each child’s day is recorded for you to take home so you know exactly what your child has been up to.

Toddler Room (2-3 years)

After the Tweenie Room we will look to move your child to the Toddler Room. This should happen when your child is about 2 years old. We will discuss the transition process with you before any room changes happen. In the Toddler Room children are cared for under the supervision of experienced staff (Staff Ratio 1:5).

The Toddler Room provides a structured day with a much greater choice of learning opportunities including arts and crafts, construction activities, table top games and much more. We will also introduce early numeracy and literacy skills and activities designed to develop your child’s communication skills.

Each day the children spend time outside in the play area or local park. Your child’s day is recorded for you to take home so you will know what they have been learning at Happitots.

3-5s Room

Bright Beginnings Nursery is recognised as a 3-5s centre by the Education Department. In the 3-5s Room children will follow the Curriculum for Excellence (Staff Ratio 1:8). Your child will progress to the 3-5s Room at around 3 years old.

We pride ourselves on ensuring that when children leave the nursery to move on to school they do so confidently and independently, whilst taking with them the enjoyment of learning and a pride in their achievements. We would strive for your child to be able to have the following skills when leaving the nursery: recognising and writing their own name, demonstrating good observational skills, showing preliminary reading skills, handling good pencil control, showing creative skills and knowledge of numbers.

At the end of each year the children take part in a graduation ceremony where they are presented with their leaving certificates and there is always a special party to mark the end of their time at Bright Beginnings!
