Oasis Early Years exists to provide children with a safe place to play to be able to express themselves socially, physically, intellectually, creatively, emotionally and spiritually ensuring their development in being able to maximize their potential as balanced human beings. It will be a place where children are valued, listened to and develop a sense of belonging.
We believe the ability to offer quality, affordable day-care will be of benefit to the parents and their ability to make positive choices about their lives and work enabling them to seek employment or return to education. It will be a place where parents are supported and encouraged.
Oasis Early Years is open Monday-Friday 8am-6pm, and is currently registered for 117 children on a daily basis (statistic covers four sites). We can take children from 6 weeks to 11 years old, and are based in 5 separate premises.
We at Oasis believe every child is unique, and that every child matters. We have a strong multicultural element here at Oasis and welcome families from a variety of cultures. It is important that we encourage children to embrace their differences, and it is our aim that the children leave Oasis feeling confident, motivated and aware of others. Festivals from around the world such as Diwali and Chinese New Year are recognised and celebrated, giving children an insight into, and an opportunity to explore various cultures.
Outings take place throughout the year and professionals such as dentists and librarians visit each of the groups which enrich the children’s knowledge of the local community.
Each Group follows their own theme and curriculum each month, and develops a wide variety of activities and resources to develop the children’s learning and play.
