Thanet Early Years Project (TEYP) is a local voluntary organisation with charitable status. 


Having been established in 1987, the main aims and objectives of TEYP remain unchanged and we continue to provide good quality, affordable childcare and education to children living in areas of socio-economic deprivation.


TEYP operates four full day care nurseries and crèche facilities across Thanet,  all of which provide childcare and education to children from two years up to five years of age.  


In addition, the Hand in Hand Nursery at Newlands Children's Centre,  and the Explorers  Nursery at Priory Children's Centre each house a baby unit offering a warm and caring environment for babies under the age of 2 years.      


Our Growing Together Nursery at Newington Children's Centre is now  a term time only,   open plan family environment, allowing the children to free flow between the two rooms and the gardens.  


Furthermore, TEYP also provide sessional creches in various locations around Thanet.  


Thanet Early Years Project is committed to employing local people and currently employ around 63  people of whom at least 95% live in Thanet.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, engage with children and staff in policy and practice development, and proactively encourage feedback.  The welfare of the child is paramount.






 The Food Information Regulation 2014.


A change in legislation relating to allergens found in food comes into place on the 13th December 2014, and Thanet Early Years Project as a childcare provider in England and Wales is required to comply with The Food Information Regulation 2014.  


The Food Standards Agency has identified fourteen allergens present in some foods, which can cause some people to have an allergic reaction after consuming them. This new regulation introduces a requirement for food businesses including childcare providers to give information about the allergenic ingredients used in any foods we provide throughout the day, including snacks and food activities.


In addition to the foods we provide we also provide children with a variety of sensory experiences that are explored through messy play activities. These activities may include: custard, baked beans, spaghetti, jelly, corn flour and homemade play dough. These sensory activities and materials provide children with the opportunity to use all of their senses to explore ideas and concepts that might be too abstract for them to understand without these tactile experiences.


As of the 13th December 2014, we will notify parents/carers  if any of these foods, both at snack times and as part of the children's play experiences, contain any of the fourteen allergens identified by the Food Standards Agency.
