Non-mobile babies benefit from the large, bright, open-plan day room, well equipped with the latest in sensory equipment to stimulate their senses during their formative months. As babies spend a lot of time sleeping at this early age, we provide a dedicated sleep room.
We constantly monitor the temperature to ensure the babies are comfortable and the integrated glass wall allows us to monitor the children at all times. There are never more than three babies to any one member of staff.
The Tweenies room is for children 1-2 years with the day structured around their changing interests. The room is very well appointed with outstanding levels of equipment allowing your child to discover at their individual level of understanding.
The room follows the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework and encourages learning through play. The Tweenies also have supervised access to the gardens.
The Toddler room benefits from a number of dedicated areas; creative and messy area, a reading corner, circle time and a home area corner. As this is the time when the majority of children start ‘toilet training’, the Toddlers room is equipped with brightly decorated children’s toilets, encouraging independence. The Toddlers have free flow access onto the outdoor play area.
All the children in all rooms go out for local educational trips, and whether it is to the local shops or places of interest we always risk assess our outings and ensure that ratios are adhered to. We support government funding which consists of 15 hours free per week for each child from the term after their third birthday.
The children have the use of a safe, enclosed garden throughout the day. The ‘grass’ is artificial which means that it will never become muddy or unusable, and the safety surface ensures that bumps and scrapes are kept to a minimum. A decked area allows the children to explore sand, water or do some digging. The shade created by the building, the trees and a fitted canopy ensures the children are protected from the sunshine in the summer.
Ample car parking is available on-site at the nursery, ensuring every visit to the nursery is welcoming and convenient for both your child and you.
