Mission Statement

Helitots was the first ever Naval Day Nursery and we are extremely proud of the support and care we offer to our families.

At Helitots we aim to give your children a safe and happy environment where they can grow in confidence and independence in preparation not only for school, but for life.

At Helitots we deliver the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)

From when your child is born up until the age of 5, your child's early years experience should be happy, active, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

 Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language;
  • Physical development; and
  • Personal, social and emotional development

These prime areas are the most essential for your child's development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the world; and
  • Expressive arts and design.

Our planning is flexible so staff can follow your child's unique needs and interests.

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

We encourage children to participate in a broad range of inviting activites in a homely atmosphere in which children feel safe and secure. Exciting activities are freely chosen through this natural free flow play philosophy which encourages children to become risk takers, build self confidence and supports them in becoming motivated and interested to learn, ensuring they are empowered to make excellent progress in their learning and development.

We strive to continuously improve our provision/service and remain ahead of the competition to ensure that the children in our care receive the best possible start to their futures.
