Bellamy Site (Mansfield)
Our Bellamy site is located within an existing Children’s Centre building (Bellamy Children’s Centre), across the road from St Peter’s Nursery & Primary School. The site has a large car park which is located in front of the building.
The site operates an electronic security system, this ensures that only staff members can open doors within the nursery by using a security card. The site is surrounded by high fencing, ensuring extra security for the children.
The site offers a large reception area with visitor’s toilets. This area is used for parents and children when they arrive, and provides a waiting area. Various toys and resources are available for the children to use while waiting.
The site offers a large play room which is fully equipped with a reading area, role play area, creative area, dining area, sensory area and various other play areas where children can self-select resources of their choice.
The nursery site also offers a separate toilet area, which includes three children’s toilets and a nappy changing area. The toilets offer independence for the children to enhance their self-care skills by using the toilets independently and practising hygiene routines. The children are encouraged to wash their hands throughout the session and also brush their teeth when they have eaten snack.
The site offers a large outdoor space with various activities including: two large sun canopies, climbing frame, water wall, play house with role play kitchen, mud kitchen, mark making area and the site has a large outdoor shed which offers bikes, cars, sports equipment and pushchairs to help support the children’s physical play.
