We are a Nursery and Preschool setting that opens from 8 am until 6pm, offering care for children from 3 months to 11 years. We take the older children to school in the morning and collect them in the afternoon. We also run a Holiday Club for the older children and offer Inset Day cover when numbers allow.
We believe that children learn best when engaged in self chosen activities with the freedom to collect and use resources to enhance their play. Staff will observe play closely and where possible find resources they think will help the children, leaving them for the children to discover. Other times they will encourage children to think about what they need and where it might come from.
Children are given opportunities to go out into the garden and use resources like the walk-in sand pit and mud kitchen to make their discoveries, our bug area is a firm favourite with the children. As is the water butt, providing a constant flow of clean water for the children to mix with the mud.
Physical activity should form a large part of a child's play and we encourage this with a large climbing frame, and other equipment such as bats, balls, balance beams and trundles (both inside and out).
We have a large main playroom with a smaller quiet room and bedroom space. We have 2 toilets with changing facilities within our complex, which is secured at both ends with a bolt lock and visitors are requested to ring the bell for entry.
We have ample parking space and space to leave buggies.>
