Cybertots At Copley Close
Cybertots at Copley Close nursery in Hanwell west London has been consistently recognised as a top performing nursery since being acquired by Cybertots in 2009. Cybertots at Copley Close was again awarded “Outstanding” by Ofsted following our most recent inspection, and one can understand the reason why, immediately upon entering the nursery.
Cybertots is part of the Copley Close Children’s Centre, and in line with our other nurseries, Cybertots has always sought to push our nurseries to the forefront of today’s development. In addition to the standard Ofsted curriculum, Cybertots teach additional classes to further enhance and broaden our children’s development including Art, Dance and Spanish.
At Cybertots we believe that physical health is fundamental to developing a healthy mind and promote physical activities including dance, with a dedicated dance teacher attending weekly.
The privately secluded garden allows children plenty of space for games and outside learning whilst the preschool room with open space is divided into areas that provide educational resources for the children’s curriculum.
We have a dedicated cook, providing freshly cooked meals on the premises, and are able to cater for specific dietary requirements.
As a part of wider learning, we regularly take children for outings to the park, local shops and library.
At Cybertots at Copley Close we are fortunate to have a dedicated babies room where we can accommodate up to 9 babies from the age of 3 months old. The babies have their own dedicated outside space in the garden, where they can play without being disrupted by older children and remain under the watchful eye of our exceptionally trained and devoted staff.
Cybertots at Copley Close is in Hanwell, West London and is located a short walk from Castle Bar train station. It is also well served by other transport links. We offer 15 hours a week free nursery education for all 3 and 4 years old and eligible 2 year old children.

Summer Is Here!
We hope to make the most of the fine weather and we do ask that all children come with a sunhat that they are happy to wear when out in the garden. We plan to be outside as much as possible, and it is important to shade the top of the head and the neck from the rays of the sun.
Summer Programme News
As usual we shall have a separate 6 weeks’ programme for the summer holiday, this year with a “World Travel” theme running through all the planned activities. As before, we shall hope to have a Celebration Evening in September to demonstrate all we have learned and achieved during the course of the summer. I shall send out invitations to all children and parents who have been here during 2018, and we look forward to hearing about the first few days at school from our current “Leavers”.
Letters and Sounds
The older children are progressing through Phase 3 of their Letters & Sounds programme, and the younger group are really enjoying their Phase 1 sessions as well. They are all so proud of their skills in recognising similar shapes of letters in the labels around the nursery and spotting each other’s names around the place. Outside we have various activities specifically designed to encourage mark making in the outside environment that has meaning relating to the children’s interests at the time, such as measuring the length of the worm or how much the plants have grown.
We have been very fortunate to have booked a visit to the Nursery of a collection of Mini Beasts for the children to see first-hand and handle lizards, snakes, spiders, giant snails and many more creatures. This is booked for Wednesday, 25th July at 11am. Children who do not normally attend on this day are welcome to attend with their parents.
We do urge all parents to take a book home each day to feed their child’s imagination and to have a few special moments together each day.
The Baby Room is busy this term, with many new arrivals. Welcome to Katana’s little sister, Kasia and to Jacob. They will be joined in September by Max, Marc and Luca
We are extremely sad to have to say “Goodbye” to Carmen who has decided to have a few months back in Spain with her partner and Isaac, their son. They will be sorely missed, but we hope they will be back at the end of the year.
Sickness & Administration of Medicine Policy
Please make certain that all medicines that are brought into the nursery for staff to give to your child have the prescription from the doctor still on the bottle or packet. This is really important, for example, in the case of eye drops for conjunctivitis, as it ensures that the doctor has seen the child and given the exact medicine required. Your child will not be admitted to the nursery without this safeguard. It cannot be a branded medicine purchased over the counter in a chemist shop. Calpol will only be administered if we have written permission to do so, and the child’s temperature is over 38. We always phone parents before giving a dose and again 30 minutes later if the temperature has not reduced, in which case we ask for your child to be collected. I do sympathise with parents who have to take time off work to look after their sick child, but temperatures above 38 mean that a child is not well. I try to offer alternative sessions if possible, but this has to comply with the ratios of children for any one session and it is not always possible. I appreciate your understanding of this issue.
