Parents/carers are greeted at the beginning of each session and encouraged to come into the nursery with their child. A small variety of activities are set up and children get to choose what they want to play with, indoors or outside, the doors are open all day. We don’t believe in ‘bad weather’ just ‘inappropriate clothing’. Painting, messy play, sand and water are continuously available both in and outdoors. Expect your child to return home looking like they’ve had a great time.
A delicious selection of fruits and vegetables are offered each morning and afternoon which the children prepare with an adult. They even get to wash and dry up afterwards to support their independence.
Children are born to move about, and we encourage this by not insisting that they sit down unless they’re eating. We differentiate activities to meet the needs of all age groups and abilities. Lunchtime is extremely sociable and enjoyed by staff and children alike.
On any given day we could be cooking, making playdough, planting vegetables, sometimes this is planned but will also happen spontaneously if a child shows and interest or makes a request.
