New Nursery Open in the Great West Quarter
Cybertots have opened a brand new, innovative and ultra modern nursery in the Great West Quarter in Brentford.

Cybertots have created the nursery to a unique design that enhances the idea of free flow and provides children with unlimited possibilities for learning and play.

Instead of traditional classrooms, different activities are accommodated in little houses within our open plan nursery, giving the sense of a village of which the children are the community.

The nursery caters to children from the ages of 3 months to 5 years and whilst 2-5 year olds have the opportunity to move around the large space, our baby area is dedicated to babies only so that they are safe and secure to develop at their own rate.

Our large garden offers a variety of activities for children to develop their physical health and imagination.

As with other Cybertots nurseries, Cybertots at GWQ has live video feed streaming so that parents can check in on their little ones throughout the day and be confident that their child is receiving the best in care and attention. Cybertots were the first nursery in the UK to introduce live streaming technology in 1999.

Cybertots at GWQ is now open for bookings and we can also arrange a tour of the nursery for you. If you would like more information then either phone us on 020 8560 5821, or send an e-mail to gwq@cybertots.co.uk

GWQ Newsletter

Spring 2017

Dear Parents & Carers,
The daffodils are rising and we’re finally making the transition into Spring!
We’ve had a very busy and productive couple of months since returning form the Christmas break, welcoming lots of new babies into our baby room and celebrating events such as Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and World Book Day. Please let me know if you haven’t been receiving the newsletter for the room your child attends as these are sent out by email as well as being displayed in reception.

Mobile Phones
We would like to remind Parents and Carers to please refrain from using your mobile phones whilst on the nursery premises. Also, although we like to foster a familial atmosphere in the nursery, we would like to kindly ask that if you are having an extended chat with a fellow parent, could you please do this in the reception area of the nursery, and for extended discussions with key persons, please make an appointment.

Our Training Day
Many Thanks for your understanding and patience during our training day closure on 27th February. The team learnt all about the benefits of Sensory Play, and how a bit of mess can go a long way to supporting your child’s development! The day proved to be a good mix of both hands on activities, discussion and theory. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the children’s play activities since! Please speak to a room leader or key person for tips.

Some Benefits of Sensory Play (From future Creative)
Cognitive development
Even before learning to talk children use their senses. Exploring sand for example confirms previous discoveries that it feels dry, gritty etc and will eventually notice other things that share those characteristics.

Social skills
Sharing experiences gives children an opportunity to observe others and emulate how they handle materials, and help build relationships.

Physical skills
Fine and gross motor skills are strengthened through shaping, moulding, scooping, mixing and splashing which support development of large and small muscles.

Communication
Children can communicate both verbally and non verbally through their choice of materials e.g a look of surprise when splashing in water. When adults respond this encourages further efforts to communicate.

Emotional Development
Sensory experiences can be calming for many children and help them work though emotions such as anxiety and frustration. For example, play dough can help relieve tension and release physical energy through pressure and manipulation. Different materials can also encourage expression of joy and excitement.

Staff News
We have a few comings and goings on the horizon over the next month or two. Please let me introduce you to some welcome new members of our team!
