The daily routine for each age group provides a wide variety of stimulating activities designed to promote and broaden key aspects of a child’s development. Each day is planned and implemented by the staff and takes each child’s interests and takes each child’s starting points in to consideration.
The nursery staff focus on many areas of a child’s development where good communication between them and the parent plays a vital role in gaining success. For example, updating us about a child’s weekend on our on line learning journey ‘Tapestry’ and staff using it to regularly update with observations and progress on each and every child.
The two nursery rooms are full of resources appropriate to the ages of the children including a home corner with kitchen area, dressing up equipment, construction areas, small world, creative, book areas and general messy play areas. All toys stimulate the children's sensory requirements and encourage exploration and investigation.
The children have access to free flow inside and outside using bikes, trikes, and play in the mud kitchen making soups, potions, sandwiches and pies.
The children go out in all-weather using our all in one waterproofs to collect eggs from our chickens and play in our forest area.
Our 2 year olds have a quiet area where they can sleep if needed and if it’s part of their home daily routine, each child has their own sheet and blanket and staff remain in the room, within ratio, at all times.
All nursery children have access to the school hall for PE.
A healthy snack is provided free for all children within the nursery both morning and afternoon.
