As part of the children's routines, the babies and toddlers are able to access the enclosed rear garden twice a day and the pre-school are able to access the garden throughout the day.
During the last two years, we have been developing our garden, providing a safer surface throughout a majority of the garden, installed a large raised flower bed, a large sandpit which doubles up as a stage, a baby swing and slide, a decked area with slide, a pirate ship, play house, mud kitchen and reading area. We have more recently had a large roof installed to cover the patio area, proving a space where the children can access the outdoors even in the wettest of weathers.
We also provide a variety of activities in the garden to support the learning and development goals for the children, including the use of natural resources.
We have an area of the garden which we are still to develop, the ethos of the final part is that of a woodland area, providing natural outdoor play and exploratory and a 'forestry themed' way of learning.
Preparing your child for their next journey in their learning and development is what our pre-school offers, enabling your child to have the skills they need for starting school.
The pre-school room provides each child an opportunity for independence, choice and friendship through a range of child-initiated and adult-led activities. Allowing children to work in small groups, listening to each other and having acceptance for each others ideas and beliefs provides a holistic approach of kindness.
Children's natural curiosity and sense of questioning is encouraged and broadened, giving opportunities for them to test what they know and question their own ideas.
Within our toddler room we provide a stimulating environment to support your child's natural curiosity. The opportunities they have in their learning and to explore through child initiated and an element of adult-led activities.
Our toddler room is designed to allow freedom of choice, a range of activities are provided each day to support their curiosity and their developing vocal skills. Circle time is a wonderful time to share stories and favourite songs.
Within our baby room we provide a nurturing environment to support your baby in their early development. They have opportunities to learn and explore in structured adult-led and child initiated activities.
Our baby room is designed to be a stimulating environment, full of colours and textures to help engage and interest your child. In contrast, we have a black and white area which are the first colours babies see and a stimuli. The cooler, softer colours offer a calming environment for relaxing and enjoying stories.
