Your child will be grouped with children of a similar age so that the play activities and experiences are appropriate for their stage of development. Our purpose built environment has three rooms at the ground level which cater for birth to school age children.
The rooms have been decorated in pale pastel colour to create a calm, homely and happy atmosphere where children can relax and feel at ease.
Our outdoor facilities include: grassed area, a canopy-covered paved area for cars and bikes rides, mud kitchen area, water and sand, tables and chairs for various activities and a large raised bed for growing our own vegetables. The children access the garden at various times throughout the day.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). This Framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their physical and cognitive development. It covers 7 areas of learning and development:
3 prime essential areas
Communication and Language
As children grow, we help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas
Understanding the World
Expressive arts and Design
