When your child joins our pre-school room their day is carefully planned by our experienced nursery nurses based upon their individual needs and preferences along with some spontaneous activities. Children three years and over are given opportunities to learn through play in a stimulating and attractive environment. Our nursery is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which allows children to develop and progress at their own rate.
Children enjoy the company of other children of a similar age and are encouraged to work in both small and large groups to enhance their social skills. Adult interaction allows children to build on their experiences along with developing communication skills and co-operation with others.
There are lots of hands on experiences to help stimulate natural curiosity such as painting, jelly play, sand and water play and modelling activities to develop creative skills. Outside the children engage in lots of physical play alongside having the chance to help with the growing of vegetables in our garden.
We have built up strong liaisons with the local schools so the transition from nursery is as smooth as possible. Every child’s Tapestry journal will be given at then end of their time with us containing their observations and achievements – this contains useful information and pictures alongside your comments and allows other professionals to further promote your child’s development.
