Deane & Derby
We offer quality care provided by friendly staff with extensive experience of working within the early years field. All nursery team members are qualified to NVQ Level 3, NNEB or above and our teams are trained in current first aid procedures.
You can be confident that your child will receive first-class care at Bolton College. Some team members are bi-lingual and can interpret for parents if required.
Key Person Scheme
Your child will be allocated a Key Person who will support their learning and development whilst at nursery, giving them the reassurance to feel safe and cared for. They will also be responsible for building a relationship with you, as their parent, providing you with regular updates on your child’s progress.
We operate an Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum aiming to ensure that:
- Each child feels valued and is cared for in a safe, secure, happy and stimulated environment.
- We provide an exciting curriculum that is well-planned and resourced
- Each child is encouraged to become confident and independent
- We provide opportunities for all children to be successful
- We develop the whole child – emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually
If you’re aged 16 to 19, you can apply for Care to Learn Funding to meet childcare costs. Ask the Nursery Manager at the centre where you wish to place your child for details.
If you are aged over 20 and in receipt of an income-based benefit or are on a low wage, Bolton College may be able to help to support you with some of your childcare costs.
If you would like to apply for this support, please complete a Childcare Learner Support Fund Application Form. (Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee assistance.) If you are already attending a College course, you must remember to re-apply and re-enrol your child for the next academic year and also to re-apply for Learner Support Funding.
