This is the front of our cosy nursery!
Children upstairs are between the ages of 3 to 4 and 1/2. Here, we do lots of activities that will give the children a solid foundation when transitioning into school. We have access to a computer, story books, creative activities, dressing up, a home corner and a building area, among other things! The children are always very busy!
We plan according to the Early Years’ Foundation Stage and encourage children to reach their own personal “next steps” or achievements! Everything your child accomplishes will be recorded in their very own Development File.
Children downstairs are between the ages of 2 and 3. Downstairs, we believe in learning through play and encouraging socialisation as much as possible! However, we also believe in creating a balance between adult-led activities and child-led play.
Children downstairs also have a development file where their progress is tracked and recorded. In order to achieve their next steps, children have access to the same areas as upstairs with age appropriate adjustment.
All children are encouraged to use either the potty or toilet, depending on their ability. We support personal care as much as possible while equally, promoting independence.
We absolutely love our outside area – come rain or shine!
We believe that children should be able to explore with freedom and so our outside area is very special to a lot of our children.
We’re currently in the process of fundraising in order to renovate our well-loved playground but children still have access to bikes, cars, hula hoops, space hoppers, a climbing frame, a mud kitchen… there’s so much going on!
