Cybertots At Copley Close
Cybertots Children’s Nursery at Copley Close Hanwell west London has been consistently recognised as a top performing children’s 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.
Cybertots at Copley Close 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 also 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 Children’s Nursery at Copley Close 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.
Copley Close Newsletter
October 2021 – Newsletter
Autumn and the beginning of the new academic year means that we’ve had to say goodbyes to some of our children, which has been quite emotional. At the same time, we are excited to welcome back those children who were on holidays and a few new starters.
We’ve also added two new members to the Cybertots family when Kayla and Nadeska joined our Baby room. Kayla is from Australia and has worked in childcare for 13 years. Nadeska speaks four languages and is particularly passionate about early childhood development.
Over the coming month we will be exploring autumn and the treasures it brings. Babies will have an opportunity to engage in play with leaves and pine cones as well as use them as media to create their artwork. Within the Pre-School room we are using language as a powerful way of communicating what we are observing, discussing colours and textures, as well as changes in weather. Older children have already been on their first treasure hunt and brought bags full of special items for their collages.

A gentle request: please dress children in clothes you are not worried about staining. We provide ample opportunities for children to engage in open-ended sensory activities, which can sometimes be messy! Messy play gives children a chance to be curious, discover, investigate, learn, to have fun, to become deeply engaged! We want to ensure that children do not feel that their clothes are more important than their learning, fun and enjoyment. As long as a child is not uncomfortable in their clothes with a slight stain from creative activities or from eating, we will not make a conscious effort to change them. However, if a child is wet or in any way uncomfortable, we will ensure their clothes are changed as soon as possible.
Home Colour Mixing Activity
As we all know, babies and children love experimenting with paint, so why not try a colour mixing activity. Use some zip lock bags and put two different paint colours in them -encourage your children to mix the colours together using their hands. This activity is a no mess activity, but sparks curiosity and fascination and paves the way for nurturing an inquisitive mind.
As the new manager I would like to say thanks for welcoming me into Cybertots. I am settling in well and it’s been lovely to meet all of you and your lovely children. I have participated in many activities over the past few weeks and met lots of wonderful babies and children. I am loving witnessing their learning through play and having so much fun!
If you have any questions to anything in Newsletter or just a general enquiry, please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email, giving me a ring or popping into the office.
