Red Balloon is a day-care facility in both Bawtry and Thorne, South Yorkshire.
At Red Balloon our simple aim is to make the lives of busy parents as easy as possible and make the days of our children as full of love, care and fun as we know you would make them yourselves.
Within the nursery, we always encourage good manners and teach each child to have respect for their playmates, for staff and for themselves.
Every day is a managed mix of playing, learning, eating and resting and we work hard to develop confident young children with all the skills they need to become caring individuals and achieve their full potential.
About the team at Red Balloon...
At Red Balloon Day Nursery we believe that every child deserves the same level of individual care and attention that they would receive if they were at home.
Our highly trained staff are committed to ensuring that your child is happy, motivated, and keen to learn at the nursery. We believe that this exceptional quality of care will enable every child at Red Balloon Day Nursery to grow into confident, creative and positive young people.
Every Child Matters
As part of our commitment to offering your child the best possible start in life, Red Balloon Day Nursery will support your child’s growth through the five outcomes outlined in the ‘Every Child Matters’ UK Government program. These ensure support for their learning and development in the areas of ‘Being Healthy’, ‘Staying Safe’, ‘Enjoying & Achieving’, ‘Making a Positive Contribution’ and ‘Achieving Economic Well-being’.
Listening to You
At Red Balloon we make sure we involve and listen to our parents and what they feel is best for their child. This includes working with each child’s keystage worker to follow home routines within the nursery, including weening, potty training, special dietary requirements and rest times. On collection of your child we will always talk you through their day and give feedback on how they are developing.
Meals and Provisions (click here)
Food and nutrition gets a special focus at Red Balloon Day Nursery. We provide a well-balanced menu of meals, snacks and drinks (excluding baby milk) that includes seasonal changes for both summer and winter. As always, we talk to our parents to vary our menus and wherever possible food is made fresh from unprocessed ingredients.
We know how stressful it can be for parents when bringing their children to a nursery, especially when it comes to supplying their own baby products. That’s why at Red Balloon Day Nursery, we pride ourselves on taking care of the little things to make sure your child is fresh, dry, comfortable and happy. For babies and toddlers, we can – if required – provide nappies, wipes and creams, meaning there’s one less thing to worry about for all the busy mums out there.
Flexibility and Funding
Red Balloon Day Nursery can offer continuous wrap-around care for 51 weeks of the year. The nursery is open from 7.30am to 6pm in the evening, 5 days week, and can offer sessions from half day to a whole day or even work with you to find timings that suit your needs.
Parents whose children are at Red Balloon Day Nursery can also take advantage of the Government’s free childcare scheme. The scheme, which gives every child between the ages of 3 and 4 up to 15 hours a week of free childcare during term times, is incredibly popular at Red Balloon Day Nursery.
More information on the scheme can be found at direct.gov.uk
Important. With a private day nursery parents can have the flexibility to stretch their funding across the year rather than just term time.
