There's no better rewarding job in the world than for us to watch the children in our care, from Babies, Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers develop and grow ready for their primary school years. This is the "Heart beat" of our work and what our staff are committed to do, nurturing your child, offering support and helping through their ages and stages of development.
"The Lodge" has been specially planned and designed in each department suitable for the different age and interests of the child. Our baby department is calming and therapeutic, a beautiful space specially designed to suit the needs of the very young babies. Our Jolly Robin toddler room is planned for the developing child who is now a little more active and energetic; this is a lively busy room and our staff are amazing at supporting your child.
Our Pre-School area is a wonderful place, allowing every child to feel they are out in the garden area even if it is raining heavily, as our arts and crafts room is designed and set into our all-weather play area which leads onto our natural garden area. Our pre-school children follow monthly planned themes designed to capture the imagination of the developing child through many art forms, e.g. arts & crafts, music, dance, song, rhyme, imaginative role play, storytelling and circle time both indoors and outdoors promoting the World around us.
At the nursery we have a dedicated team of professional staff who are child-centred, love to care and see our children thrive and develop through all ages and stages. Our staff are especially selected by management and must adhere to all Bluebell Lodge Health & Safety procedures and policies.
All staff are qualified in Early Years development, and are genuinely interested in all of the needs of every child trusted to their care. All staff are individually vetted by Social Services and Access Northern Ireland.
The Management Staff
Health and Safety
The safety of the children in our care is paramount. Bluebell Lodge Private Day Nursery has policies and procedures in place. The nursery is fully equipped with the latest fire and health & safety equipment. We're monitored by Social Services and the Early Years Organisation on a regular basis.
The nursery has an access control system installed on the main entrance door, with access gained only by swipe card; which are only in the possession of owners and staff.
A doorbell is installed to alert the attention of staff to any person seeking entrance to the building, including parents.
CCTV is in operation throughout the whole nursery, and closely monitored at all times.
We hope that by providing such an up-to-date security system, the safety, welfare and needs of all children, parents and staff will be met at Bluebell Lodge Private Day Nursery.
