Welcome to our Inventors Room, St Albans

In the Inventors Room the children are aged between three and five years old, depending on their stage of development. The children are encouraged to be independent learning exploring the environment around them. They will begin to develop new interests in activities such as computer skills, music and dance CD’s, mathematics and expressive arts and design. The children will also start swimming lessons during term time only.

We often find the children have progressed through our Discoverers and then Explorers rooms, and are thus very comfortable in our nursery environment and with our dedicated staff.

Keyperson

As with all our nursery rooms here in St Albans we operate a keyperson scheme. The scheme ensures that every child has a named person who'll be responsible for the planning and observation of your child’s learning whilst in the Preschool Room.

Before your child joins us we offer a settling period. During this important trial period you and your child come and meet our staff and the other children. This allows you both to become familiar with our nursery environment. Each child settles in differently so we will work with each individual family to meet your needs.

This is the perfect opportunity to chat to us about your child’s routine, likes and dislikes and to enable us to discuss the care routine for your child, e.g. how they sleep, if they have a comforter, dietary needs etc.

Also at this time we would ask you to return any personal registration forms to our manager, Karen. This is to ensure we have all the necessary information / contact details, before you leave your child with us for the first time.

First day at our St Albans Preschool

On your first day in our Preschool room you will need to bring with you:   

  • Baby wipes (if used)
  • Spare clothes
  • A sun hat and sun cream for the warmer months
  • Care plan

Medication

Under Ofsted regulations we are only allowed to administer medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor. If your child needs prescribed medicine you'll be asked to fill in a medicine form giving instruction on dosage, time upon arrival at the nursery each day. You will be asked to sign a form at the end of the day so that you have the correct information about your child’s medication.

We can administer Calpol in an emergency, but only with prior written consent from parents. We only give Calpol if your child has a high temperature and we have contacted you by telephone to request your verbal permission. Should we not be able to contact you by phone and your child needs Calpol we will administer it on the grounds that it is a pre-signed consent form. If your child continues to run a high temperature we will endeavour to reduce it by cooling the child with damp cloths and removal of clothes. If this does not work we will request that you collect your child from nursery and seek medical assistance. In extreme medical circumstances or if we cannot make contact with you or the recorded emergency contact person we will call for an ambulance, (although thankfully this is extremely rare).
