All the rooms

Babies and young children grow very quickly. To provide the best possible environment we have seven separate areas in the nursery, offering a safe, comfortable grouping of children that support their feeling of being supported in a family setting.

The nursery combines caring support with the application of government guidance on the best support for young children: The Early Years Foundation Stage (2008) EYFS

Flower Kingdom

Our babies are looked after by caring and dedicated staff in three bright, spacious rooms with large windows and high ceilings

Having a separate sleep room means that the younger babies can  have a quiet, sleeping time in their own cot.

To support family routines, parents bring in their chosen milk and  nursery food is provided unless parents wish to provide an alternative choice.

Bumble Bees

This is a setting that continues to be warm and caring. In this area children are supported to actively develop, in an environment that combines active learning and growing opportunities.

The Bumble Bees Room is a welcoming and stimulating environment . The room is equipped with toys and games which stretch the children’s developing cognitive, imaginative and co-coordination skills.  Children are encouraged to explore and develop in a setting with a high level of adult support

Dragonflies

This is a setting that continues to be warm and caring. In this area children are supported to actively develop, in an environment that combines active learning and growing opportunities.

This is a time when children are developing rapidly and trying to assert her/himself. Lots of understanding and patience is required to allow and encourage their growing sense of independence, whilst fostering important social skills and recognition of the feelings of others. In these rooms we follow a daily routine but still allow lots of time for free play and games.

Preschool and Sunshine room

Our Preschool room is for children up to five years. The day is carefully structured to ensure the Foundation Stage curriculum is covered but play is still the best vehicle for learning at this age.

Our staff make sure there is a good balance of focused and more energetic activities, providing the children with the nurturing and attention they require with the space to grow into and explore their developing capabilities.

All this fun can be hard work, so those that need it can have a short sleep after lunch while the others spend a quiet period either looking at books or being involved in quiet table play.
