Facilities made for growing children

 

 

Our nursery facilities are all purpose built and designed with your child and their developing needs in mind. We have spacious rooms, lots of natural light and direct access to the garden from all rooms except the baby room. We have a covered outdoor play area so the children can be outside in all weathers and a large garden filled with mature trees with lots of different activities on offer such as climbing equipment, a large deep sandpit and areas for gardening.  The garden also has a meandering path which all the children spend endless hours doing laps around: as they grow they seem to progress from pushing buggies to riding scooters to riding bikes and we've used this opportunity to teach them about one-way traffic!!!  The children have also settled brilliantly into our new Preschool building which opened in December 2015 at the bottom of our very large garden.

Young children learn and develop best through having the freedom to play and explore in an environment which is set upIMG 50Csmaller for their age and stage of development. They can then feel relaxed and confident and you know they are safe.  Our carefully planned nursery environment encourages small children’s natural curiosity and creativity. We provide facilities which give our children carefully monitored opportunities to freely explore and discover, we help them make sense of the exciting world around them and of course play with other children and make friends.

We have different rooms for different ages of children and this allows us to set each room up and provide equipment for their evolving needs.  For example in the baby room we have safe and comfortable area where your baby can learn to roll and crawl and explore with limited mobility and lots of soft cuddly toys and toys for chewing. In the preschool your child is developing good gross and fine motor skills and may want to do construction with big pieces of wood or drawing with coloured pencils. As children get older we offer more challenging toys and facilties to meet their changing needs and ensure there is plenty of scope for new challenges.

Generally your child will move up from one room to the next based on their age and stage of development but we will also work with individuals needs so for example if your child starts to walk early we may move them sooner and vice versa. to find out more about each room and what to expect please click below:

We also have different areas in the garden for each age and stage and for different types of activity.  The babies and toddlers have a separate area with artifical grass which is ideal for the little ones crawling and learning to walk with lots of interesting destinations to encourage them to find their feet.  The older children get to enjoy our huge main garden with mature trees, hide-outs, opportunities to climb and run and dig and, when they need to, just sit and relax in our peaceful gazebo with a cuddly toy and blanket.
