Your child will be cared for by a dedicated team, who are highly qualified, friendly & enthusiastic.

Close to Home is a place where your child will gain and build confidence, self esteem, sociability and sensory awareness.

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage to aid us in assessing and planning your child’s learning journey. We also promote activities and experiences that are enhanced by our local environment in order that your child begins to understand the world around them. These activities can include visits to places such as the farm, railway, zoo or beach.

Our approach to your child’s learning puts value on experimentation and decision making. Therefore we incorporate activities using natural products which promote this such as cooking and tasting, where children can work with new textures, colours and smells as they mix, pour and measure ingredients.

We also encourage our children to be active decision makers in the displays shown around the setting and we try to plan them using the children’s individual interests and ideas.

"Our son, Sebastian, began attending C2H in 2009, just after his 2nd birthday. Almost a year later, we have nothing but praise for Sarah (Seb's key worker) and all the staff. Seb has a wonderful time, so much so, that this played a huge part in our decision to move to Burnham permanently."

We believe that children learn best through play and through activities that are of interest to them. We have a huge variety of resources for our children to chose from, promoting independence within their learning journey. These include small world, role play, construction, craft and messy resources.

We also have a fully equipped garden including a climbing frame, swing, cars and bikes, ball run, and various malleable play opportunities as well as our very own vegetable plot.
