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.

Autumn Term 2017
Already half term and the nights are drawing in. We are planning some Autumn walks to gather leaves and berries for our displays. At this time of year we are spoilt for choice in celebrating festivals of celebrations and lights.
Our Medium Term Planning for the second half of term includes focused discussions around the following topics and celebrations:-
30/10 – 3/11 Halloween
6/11 – 10/11 Light and sparkles / Bonfire Night
13/11 – 17/11 Construction and buildings
20/11 – 24/11 My favourite TV character
27/11 – 1/12 Scotland / Saint Andrew’s Day
4/12 – 8/12 Opposites
11/12 – 15/12 Winter / Hanukkah
18/12 – 22/12 Christmas
These discussions follow the children’s interests and extend naturally into other areas, linking in all the areas of learning, such as Communication, Math, Understanding the world around us and Design & Technology. It is always surprising how much mathematical learning takes place in the kitchen, for example! If any parents have special interests or suggestions as to what seems to fascinate their child, we would love to know so that this can be linked in to our planning and play provision.
This term Nicki, Luca and Gabriel have moved up from the babies and they have been joined by Ollie. All seem to be thriving in the more active environment.
This Autumn Lena, Mia, Louis, Oran, Joseph, George and Lumi have joined us in our Baby Room, They all seem happily settled in their new routines and surroundings and already forming bonds between each other and staff.
They will soon be joined by Clarissa in the New Year.
We are very sad that Ola will be leaving us at the end of November, in order to return home to look after her family. We wish here every happiness in her new role in life and hope that she will come back soon.
A very warm welcome to Zofia, who has joined us from Cybertots at Ealing; also to Izabela who has come from Cybertots at GWQ; to Natalia who has now completed her NVQ 3 studies and returned to work for Cybertots; and finally to Anna Dawid, who has returned to Cybertots after maternity leave. We are very lucky to have such warm and experienced practitioners joining our team here at Copley.

We would like to invite all parents to Come a bit early on Wednesday 1st November to enjoy a cup of Pumpkin soup (made by the children, of course) and a seeded roll (also made by the children) The clocks will have returned to GMT and so it will be nice and dark in the garden for our firework celebration. Please come, even it is not your child’s normal day.
End of Year Party
Thursday 14th December 3pm – 5pm
The children will perform a special production and there will be a traditional tea afterwards! If your child does not normally attend on this day please come along. We will also hope to have a ‘special visitor’ on the day who will be giving out a small gift to each child! Please let us know if brothers and sisters are attending so we can ensure each child has a gift!
Last day for staff and invoiced children Friday 22nd December 2017 and we will re open Tuesday January 2nd 2018.
With best wishes for a very happy second half of term.
