Curriculum and Play Rooms

We provide separate age appropriate rooms for Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School children which are fully equipped to provide a stimulating environment, including a wide range of  resources accessible by the children at all times, empowering them to make choices and facilitate child initiated learning. Each room has direct access to their own outdoor play area which we make full use of in all weather conditions, from exploring nature to splashing in   puddles with free flow play in both morning and afternoon sessions.

Pre School 3 - 5 years

Our pre-school room is a 24 place room with a ratio of 1:8. Pre-school is a bright welcome room with a range of interesting activities available for the children to explore their senses and learn through play. Each child will be allocated a key person on their taster/settling in visits to the nursery which will be there to support the child in their transition into the new environment. The key person is there to provide the communication between the adult/carer and the child at home. Each key person will carry out observations on the individual child’s interest and plan weekly for these interests accordingly. Staff also provide adult led activities to further children’s knowledge and understanding to progress their development further.               

Free flow is available throughout the day where the indoor environment is reflected into the outdoor environment for development of all children.

 

Toddler room 2 - 3 years

Our Toddler room is a 16 place room with a staff ratio of 1:4. In our experience Toddler children have a thirst for knowledge and a genuine curiosity. We have the ethos for children to learn through exploration and play, therefore each child’s key person will spend time getting to know their children and the children’s interests, enabling them to plan and provide a curriculum which will encourage autonomous learning and self-development while the children have fun.  Using the children’s interests and needs the Key person plans an environment which stimulates all areas of holistic development.
