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 Dance and Movement classes.
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.

Spring was a long time coming, but we have been looking hard for the new buds on the trees, and waiting for the cheery yellow daffodils we planted last Autumn to bloom in the garden. We are so proud of them that it will spur us on to do our summer planting after Easter – flowers, salad and vegetables.

Week 1 Gardens

We are always very pleased when parents become involved in our programme and offer to come to talk to the children about the world around us – it will give a different perspective to “People Who Help Us” (Week 25.1.16) when a special mummy comes to tell us about nursing!. Listen carefully to your child’s conversation, and spot all the exciting vocabulary that is coming into play, giving lots of opportunities for extended learning.
One of our primary roles at Nursery is to give your children confidence. Confidence in following their special interests; confidence in what to wear and how to dress; confidence to choose friends and to share activities; confidence to choose how much to eat; confidence that their parents will come to pick up at the end of the day to share all their experiences with them.
Confidence is catching – if a parent presents to their child as being unsure that Nursery is a “Good Thing”, this transmits itself down through the encircling arms carrying their child in first thing in the morning, and it is only natural that the child thinks to himself ”Oh dear, Mummy & Daddy are not at all sure of this – I need to be anxious about this as well”. Please have complete confidence in entrusting us to take as much care of your children as if they were our own!
During last term we welcomed five babies, Hejran, Lydia, Anthony, Yaseen and Nicki. They are being joined by Alexander, Lehi, Gabriel and Leon this term.Five babies, Zachary, Judah, Micah, Annabel and Maxence have transitioned to the Big Room and will soon be joined by Samuel and Katana in June.. This just emphasizes how quickly the months and years go by, so savour every moment of these early years!
We are often asked for guidance by new parents about when to administer Ibuprofen or Calpol. As a general rule, you should choose either one or the other, whichever works best for your child, but do not mix. Only use them for treating a fever of above 38 degrees – it is quite usual for a child to have a temperature of up to 37.8 when reacting to a bug and giving Calpol at this stage will impede the body’s immune system from working efficiently. Never use Calpol for teething or broken sleep unless the temperature is over 38 degrees.
Congratulation to Aida who has secured a placement as a Team Leader in a Community Centre near her home in Shepherd’s Bush. It will leave a big gap in our lives, as Aida started here as a volunteer in 2010, whilst completing her NVQ Level 3 and then I mentored her through her studies until she gained a BA Honours Degree at South Bank University. So our best wishes go with her in her new role.
We would also like to wish Kirstie Speck every good fortune in pursuing a new career. She is spending some months in Greece, before deciding on her next step
Congratulations too to Patrycja, who passed her NVQ Level 2 last term and is now signed up to do the next level 3.
With best wishes from us all.
