Our HISTORY

FOUNDED WITH A PASSION FOR CHILDCARE

After the success of the Little Stoke setting and having acquired an excellent team of staff, Joanne and Ruth began a new venture running a term-time provision from a Sure Start Centre in Filton in September 2013. Recognising the opportunity to provide for many families in the local area who are lacking support and childcare services, our Filton setting has become an established, reputable nursery of the local area.

With our recent first Ofsted report resulting in a rating of ‘Good’, we are eager to continue developing on our journey as a quality nursery provision.

Our Vision

Ensuring each child has every opportunity to reach their full potential from the very start

At Play Station our vision is something shared and practiced by all who join the nursery. We believe childhood is something that should be relished, never hurried.

We help children learn through play in a nurturing, stimulating environment that feels like a home from home. Children feel like part of a family when they are with us, with confidence to explore and challenge themselves through a wide range of experiences. Staff are empowered to guide but not dictate, strengthen but not overpower, and teach but not lecture children. We know that children learn best when enjoying and engaging in their play, so every day children laugh and have fun, learning independence, confidence and understanding of their role in the world in a safe, loving, respectful, environment.

Ensuring each child has every opportunity to achieve their full potential has to start at the very beginning of their life, so we recognise the importance of our role in Early Years in helping them progress. Parents as partners/carers are integral in our provision, and we share their children’s progress with them at every step of the way.

INCLUSION

At Play Station Nursery we openly welcome all children and their families.

At Play Station Nursery we openly welcome all children and their families.

Children accessing the Nursery Education Entitlement Grant are welcomed to the nursery, and if using the full 15 funded hours will pay no fees whatsoever.

We also pride ourselves on our history of providing support to children with a range of different needs. Our experienced practitioners can effectively cater for children with dietary requirements, allergies, certain medical conditions, additional needs and special educational needs.

Food
There are no extra charges for food, as packed lunches are provided by parents. Snack time costs are covered in the monthly/weekly sundry charges. Staff see mealtimes as the greatest opportunity to model good eating practices and importantly encourage conversation and discussion. Staff will sit with the children and often eat the same food. Children are encouraged to serve themselves with adult support and feed themselves.
OUR SETTING

WHERE IS FILTON?

Play Station Nursery @ Filton is a 30 space nursery providing for children aged 2 to 5 years old. The setting is open term-time only, for 15 hours a week.

The provision runs from a Sure Start centre in Filton. Local businesses that benefit from our close proximity to the A38 feature Airbus, Rolls Royce and the MOD amongst more. The nursery runs from one large room in the building, benefitting from a wealth of resources that are tailored to the children’s needs.

The outside space is a wonderful place for children to explore, featuring construction, sandpit, bikes and trikes, a den, running water, places to hide, and lots of little things to discover and explore.

The 2-3’s and 3-5’s run from the same room but have ample opportunity to divide and spend some time playing as specific age groups.

Children have free-flow in and out of the buildings into the garden as much as practically possible, we love that we are able to give the children chance to roam and explore their outside environment when they please (with the helping hand of supportive adults).
