Home from Home specialises in entertaining and encouraging children to develop and learn ‘at their own pace’ within a stimulating and caring, home environment. We only accept a maximum of twelve children daily because we believe that this benefits the children and encourages the same traditions and values, as they would have at home.
Every child is treated as a unique individual with his or her own personality and sense of humour nurtured. Our stimulating and fun routines create a happy and secure environment which caters for the children’s genuine interests, abilities and developmental stage. Children are encouraged to be thoughtful, kind, helpful and respectful to one another as they learn to share, make new friends and understand boundaries. In order to provide your child with close adult attention we ensure that our staffing ratios are very high.
Home from Home is located at Cathcart Road, SW10 with its sister setting in Parsons Green, Fulham. Children have use of two bright and spacious playrooms with a wide selection of age and stage appropriate toys and educational equipment. There is also a room where children can relax or do more structured work.
The children play in the garden at regular intervals throughout the day. The garden has been specifically designed and equipped with your child’s safety in mind:
Children have a section to plant their own flowers, fruits and vegetables as they learn about nature and the world around them whilst acquiring healthy eating knowledge. We are within five minutes walk from Redcliffe Square and Ifield Road playground and ten minutes from Westfield Park, so the children are taken on regular ‘park trips’, either in the mornings or afternoons, to enjoy the outdoors.
The idea of providing quality childcare to young children has come from my own experience of day care. I believe, along with much research, that babies and young children in particular need individual care in a warm and secure environment. ‘Home from Home’ allows your child to experience normal aspects of life incorporating age appropriate curriculum planning, in a stimulating home environment surrounded by other children.
