BABY ROOM Up to 2 years
The baby room provides ample space to crawl and explore in a safe and secure setting. We aim to provide a comforting and homely environment in which your child's daily routine will be followed through close liaison with parents/carers.
TODDLERS 2 -3 years
The toddlers have their own room to play with free access to many activities such as crafts, games, home corner and messy play. There is also a cosy corner for taking naps and sharing stories quietly. The children are cared for in small groups and will be encouraged to progress and become more confident and independent through their play.
PRE SCHOOL 3-5 years
The children in the pre school room follow a slightly more structured day to help them develop in line with the Early Learning Goals set by the DCSF. The staff follow a curriculum designed to your child's individual needs; activities will be planned which are fun and exciting to ensure that children enjoy their time in this room. Their activity areas will include sand/water, messy play, construction, book area, mathematical resources and puzzles. We will use the full resources of the nursery and our surroundings to teach the children about the world around them.

The children will be having a visit from our local lollipop lady. She will be explaining to the children what she does and teaching them road safety.
It is important for children to learn how to stay safe when they are out and about, and it is never too early to teach them how!
Appointments can be made by calling the nursery.
The parent session is your opportunity to come and talk to the staff about your child's development in an informal environment over a drink (tea and coffee only). Parents have benefited greatly from this, working in partnership to aid their child's development.
