We strive to be your first choice in childcare.
Come and see if we can meet or beat your standards.
As toddlers become pre-schoolers we respond with a focus on self-managed activities
as part of day-to-day play, such as dressing up, ‘cooking’ in the play kitchen and
developing their independence skills.
Messy play, hide and seek and memory games in the nursery are also introduced. Safely managed and supervised, such activities nevertheless encourage respect, co-operation and personal choice and of course, they’re lots and lots of fun!
The children take part in circle time, as a group the children are encouraged to develop speech and language and taking turns this helps the child to develop into a happy member of nursery.
Outdoors also plays an important part in your child’s development, we explore our environment teaching children about nature and the world around them.
We follow a structured theme each term to help us grow the knowledge the children have and to help them in understanding the daily structures they will have when they move on to school.
These are examples of the topics and the themes we use.
