Welcome to Poppyfields. We provide a happy, stimulating, high quality and secure nursery setting for all children aged 2 years to 5 years and ‘out of school hours club’ for children aged 2 years to 9 years where they may flourish to their full potential.
We provide nursery/ wrap around/after school care on the Fairfield Lower School site and welcome children from the local area.
Poppyfields work within a framework that ensures equal opportunities for all children and families. We enhance the development and education of children by involving parents in Poppyfields ‘life’, building on what each child already knows/is able to do. Communication is key to a successful partnership and this is encouraged at Poppyfields between staff, children and their families. For many children, Poppyfields will be their first step towards independence and we ensure each child feels safe and happy – both of which are vital foundations from which a child may become confident, explore and develop. In turn, children discover that other adults can be a source of friendship and knowledge and that group experiences can be enjoyed and shared with parents afterwards. Our extended friendship to families ensures valuable communication, enabling each child’s ‘all around’ development, while promoting equality and valuing diversity.
In addition we are pleased to offer wrap around childcare and Out of School Hours and some holiday care in partnership with Fairfield Park Lower School. Our close relationship with the school promotes the well-being of children attending and ensures their holistic needs are consistently met.
We also work in partnership with Stotfold and District Children’s Centre and St Mary’s Academy to fully support children and their families and to ease the transition from nursery into lower school life.
We are enormously pleased with our latest Ofsted Inspection grading where we once again gained ‘outstanding’ in every area. We strongly believe in professional development, reflection and evaluation and incorporate this within our practice. This guarantees our group is constantly evolving, building on strengths and ensuring that legislation is updated promptly, with staff continually updating their qualifications to maintain our ‘outstanding’ status ensuring the needs of our children and families are met.
