As soon as children join the nursery we begin to encourage a wide range of experiences from tactile such as jelly, blancmange, spaghetti, corn flour, etc to investigative skills through sand and water play, treasure baskets and the outdoor area. Singing, music and movement, reading and one to one encouragement e.g. learning to crawl, walk etc are all incorporated in our children's nursery day.
As children progress through the nursery we allow children to explore their environment freely and encourage their skills from hands on experiences. Children are involved in gardening, recycling, composting and learning from an early age how to care for their surroundings.
We have an excellent outdoor play area which is mainly grassed but includes decking, sand and water area, mini beast area, construction, baby decking, music area, sensory garden, vegetable patches and a scarecrow ! We believe children should be outside as much as possible, with consideration in hot weather ( sun hats and sun cream are always used ) but also able to be outside in the rain and the snow. (we have suitable protective suits and Wellington boots) It is these experiences that are important to their learning.
" I felt proud that both my children attended this nursery. "
" I have always felt content in the level of superb provision that has been provided by all involved. "
