As your child becomes older we offer a clearly defined routine, so that we can provide a purposeful and varied day containing a wide range of fun and learning activities. Our day incorporates both ‘adult-directed’ and ‘child-led’ activities, as well as periods of indoor and outdoor ‘free-play’. Activities include: water and sand play, creative play, art and crafts, cooking, modelling, story time, music and movement, nursery rhymes, singing, fine motor play, jigsaws, puzzles, construction toys, outdoor play, ride on toys, news and discussion time. We use these play activities to introduce early concepts of counting, colours and shapes and create positive foundations for child development.
Because of our high staff to child ratio, our team are able to work closely alongside your children, discussing and encouraging their activities and so helping to promote their language, observational and physical development.
Each child has its own special scrapbook and when your child joins the nursery a scrap book will be made. This book will have photos of your child while at nursery and any pictures they might have created. You are welcome at any time to look at the scrapbooks and you can bring in any pictures you want to be add in or the postcards of places you have visited.
