We boast a unique set up in our nursery with smaller rooms to allow for key groups to focus on key areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and bring diversity and challenges to the young minds on a daily basis.
We have a young energetic team bringing fresh ideas, direction and focus into the nursery. They are well experienced in aiding transition from either home or our baby room as little ones experience the turbulence of turning two and the exciting adventures they are yet to have. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that each child’s individual needs are met and your little one gets the best nursery experience- which is nothing more than they deserve.
We pair play with learning to engage little minds and move through our different rooms experiencing reading, messy play, literacy, mathematics and delving into sensory activities.
Our separate library allows our little ones to delve into literature and ignite a joy of reading. The separate space allows for both out toddlers and pre-school to take joy from a quiet story time, energetic rhythm and rhyme or to recognise our letters and beginning to read.
Our separate sensory room is a jewel in our crown, with fabulous array of equipment creating a calm relaxing environment for all ages groups. We believe that access to a sensory room makes a big difference to a child, whether they simply enjoy the mood lighting and light-up table top or require extra sensory time to deal with a complex of emotions that they do not truly understand, our sensory room is at their disposal.
A chance to express for little ones to explore their artistic side, from painting, foam play, to water and sand play- there is nothing our creative room cannot handle. We are extremely proud of the creations and display them in the art gallery for all to see. With this space the children are able to get creative throughout the day, it also allows us to host craft events for Parents/Carers.
A dedicated room for maths and literacy is a valuable tool. As the toddler team build confidence and learn the basics with their little ones, a smaller room to concentrate with their key groups is essential we have found. This quiet space to concentrate in and start their love of learning gives the children a strong grounding ready for Pre-School and life-long learning.
Our main garden is filled with exciting equipment for toddlers to explore and to have adventures with. We have a collection of bikes, cars and slides for the children to enjoy together in harmony.
The inclusion of outdoor education is essential to our ethos, we promote healthy eating and general exercise throughout the day. As side from exercise reasons our activities regularly outside to enjoy nature, from jumping in muddy puddles, hunting for bugs or having a teddy bear’s picnic.
Our toddler suite of rooms is a place for little minds to explore and learn through excitement of play, but in their own way at their own pace.
Health and Well-Being Room
Our dining space allows for the opportunity to have a communal eating room for our toddlers and pre-schoolers to enjoy their lunch and snack café. The social aspect of communal eating allows little ones to gain new social skills and experiences sharing meal times together, with the fast-paced environment of a busy nursery taking the time to share a meal is of real importance to us.
We believe in the importance of communal meal, with the traditional tea time of everyone sharing a meal around the family table has been side-lined with the demands and pressures of our busy working environments taking over. Therefore, we promote this activity throughout the nursery at every meal time, that we come together in our groups (be that babies, toddlers or pre-school) to eat our food and discuss our feelings, what we did at the weekend, what’s on our mind and encourage conversations between the children.
We also use this hub to teach the importance of healthy eating and healthy lifestyle choices, encouraging trying new flavours and textures at the snack café. Whilst celebrating festivals together as a whole nursery, and experiencing different culinary delights.
Our focus on healthy lifestyle choices is seen through different aspects of the nursery, outdoor education, sport coaches, dental hygiene, snack café and the enjoyment of our home cooked meals.
