Grundisburgh

At our Grundisburgh provision we cater for children aged two to five years between the hours of 8am and 3.15pm. We have a wide variety of stimulating, enjoyable, play based activities available to help promote all areas of development, encourage individual choices and promote social and language skills.

We ensure children are involved in choosing what activities they would like to do and we always plan around the children’s interests. We have access to an outside area, where children are able to join in with a range of activities including role play, construction, investigation and sensory play.

I love the sense of family I get from working for YMCA. I am supported with my Professional Development and valued for my knowledge and experience. I enjoy the opportunities to work with other areas of the organisation to try and ensure the children get the very best start to their early years. I love to involve the community around our settings and am always looking for ways that our children can get involved with local events.

My favourite things to do with the children are messy play, singing, making up our own stories and playing outside!

I love the progression that the company offers, with everyone being valued and recognised for their skills. The childcare team work so closely together even with the 6 nurseries so far away, and therefore the support and guidance offered to all staff is excellent.

I love spending time in the creative area, the messier the activity can be the better!

I love that the YMCA can offer more professional training so we can develop. Through YMCA they are helping support me in doing my degree.

My favourite activities are anything that is messy, I will get loads of different materials and resources out to play and explore with. I will always encourage the children to join in the experience with me.

The best thing about working for YMCA is the lovely children. It feels good to work for a company that has a reputation for helping other people. Staff are always happy and make me feel welcome.

My favourite things to do with the children are puzzles, it is nice to see how proud of themselves they are when they have completed them.
