Here we provide everything to keep the active mind and body stimulated and entertained. Our fully qualified and experienced staff, make learning fun within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
We fully acknowledge the importance to encourage our children in free play and self-expression. Consequently we have plenty of space with dedicated areas that infants can play, explore and experiment.
We operate a 1:4 staff ratio for our two year olds and 1:8 staff ratio for our children over three.
Role Play Area
An area which can be a kitchen, hospital, garage, office or even a space rocket, if that is what the children want it to be. Children can simply act out and develop their imaginations.
Small World Area
Whether in the doll’s house, train station, farm, busy road network and garage, our children can use and develop their imagination and communication skills.
Modelling with a variety of materials, using the necessary tools and equipment, glue, card, wood, plastic, etc. along with different types of building bricks. Children learn the concept of size, weight and density i.e., big, small, heavy, light, soft, hard, etc.
Art & Craft Area
Using paints, crayons, pens, beads, string, clay, textiles, collage, glue, scissors, etc. Children learn co-ordination, co-operation, design and colour skills.
Sand & Water Area
A sand and water tray with buckets, bowls, scoops, bottles, funnels, etc. Children are introduced to the concepts of maths, science and technology.
A good selection of storybooks and reference books for infants to select and look at or share at story time. Children learn the concept of written communication, while sharing others life experiences.
Information Technology Area
With access to a computer and laptop with age suitable software, children can develop all areas of their learning, using a mouse and keyboard.
After all that activity, sometimes our infants just need to be able to relax and have a snooze.
