Information about the setting

The Lighthouse Day Nursery is a privately owned nursery which first registered in 2003. The nursery re-registered in 2007 because of a change in organisation status. The nursery is registered on the Early Years Register. It operates from two floors of a large Victorian town house in the centre of Leamington Spa. Children are cared for in five large playrooms and there is a large, fully enclosed garden for outside play. The nursery serves the local area and opens every week day throughout the year, except for bank holidays. Sessions are from 8am until 6pm. The nursery provides funded early education for children aged two-, three- and four-years-old. It supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and children who speak English as an additional language. There are currently 74 children attending who are in the early years age group. The nursery employs 18 members of full- and part-time staff, including the manager; all of whom hold appropriate early years qualifications from levels 2 to 6. The manager holds Early Years Professional status. The nursery receives support from the local authority. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: extend the already successful print-rich environment by providing more visual words in children’s home languages.
