Welcome to Creations Nursery
Creations nursery is situated right in the heart of the Pellon Community next to Ling Bob J, I & N school.
Here at Creations Nursery we believe that early childhood is the foundation for a child’s journey through life. Each stage of development and learning is valued and respected in its own right.
We have two rooms within Creations a 0-2 year old room and a 2-5 year old room, our 0-2 room is a stimulating, safe and sensory environment where we support each child’s holistic development to enable them to thrive. We follow each child’s individual needs and routines and offer support for parents on things like; weaning, sleeping, oral hygiene, behaviour and development.
This room is for children from 0-2years and has an adult to child ratio of 1:3, the room can have up to 10 children in at any one time and has open access to our outdoor area.
Play is at the centre of our room providing different play opportunities to help our babies learn and develop through their senses, exploring and making sense of their environment. Activities like; messy play, exploring textures, sensory/ treasure baskets, sand and water play, singing and stories are provided. These activities give our babies abundant opportunity to explore experiment and discover. The activities are planned with consideration for the age and stage of development of each child along with their interests.
In our 2-5 room is a free flow room providing a caring, educational and fun approach to learning. Children are encouraged by staff to develop to the best of their ability in all areas of learning through play in a relaxed stimulating environment. Practitioners plan activities around the children’s personal experiences and interests to extend their knowledge and skills. Activities are planned and delivered to challenge and extend the children’s learning within a stimulating environment.
The 2-5’s room is registered by OFSTED to provide Early Education funded childcare places for children between the ages of two and four years. This supports children to develop their school readiness skills. Children that access there Early Education funding with us access key skills groups to focusing on different aspects of the EYFS.

Creations Children’s Centre takes great pride in how we underpin healthy eating and lifestyles within our nursery. All our meals are freshly prepared on site using local fresh produce by our cook.
Within our centre we have taken part in ‘Food for Life Early Years Award’
The Soil Association’s Food for Life Early Years Award is an independent endorsement for nurseries and children’s centres that serve good quality, nutritious food and support the babies and children in their care to develop good eating habits for life. Evidence shows that eating habits form early, and good nutrition plays a crucial role in a child’s growth and cognitive development.

What is Early Essence?
It is an online tool to record all our Children’s Centres use to record children’s development and produce assessments that are shared with parents.
Parents are able to securely log in online to access their child’s individual learning journey. Details of how to do this will be given to parents at the point of registration.
Within the learning journey parents are able to see picture, observations and video clips which are uploaded by Children’s Centre staff. They are also able to upload picture, video’s and comments to support their child’s learning and development at home.
If you are a parent whose child attends one of our nurseries you are able to access Early Essence using the following link. You will need your own personal log in details to do this.

Policies and Procedures
How will my child learn at Creations Nursery?
The Learning Framework
All nurseries and childcare settings must follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) and it is against this that we are inspected. There are seven EYFS areas of learning and development which are taken into consideration:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Physical Development
- Communication and language
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
We recognise that children are unique individuals who learn and develop at different times and in different ways. We encourage their holistic development by spending time getting to know them and building on what they can do, helping them to reach their full potential. Our staff will plan EYFS activities for your child to enjoy on their own or with other children both in the indoor and outdoor environment.
For more information read our Parents’ guide to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
Our OFSTED Registration Number is EY484217.
