for babies, toddlers, 2 year olds, pre-school, after school club & holiday club
Our purpose built unit, gives a warm, cosy & unique environment for Babies & under two's to feel content whilst exploring the unique setting we offer based on a Reggio Emilia Approach. We will continue to develop each child’s cultural capital & babies are encouraged to play in both a sensory and physical way concentrating on the prime areas of learning. Lots of floor time is given to young babies to help develop strong muscle tone and physical skills. Heuristic play and treasure baskets are used daily and this has a positive effect on early development, using their environment as the 3rd teacher.
Based on a Reggio Emilia Approach our room for two year old's acts as the 3rd-teacher, giving many opportunities for child led learning and staff teach children through play, all planning is in the moment with instant next steps. We use open ended resources to develop imagination and creative thinking and we believe strongly in making learning fun for children. Each child’s cultural Capital is always taken into consideration as staff plan carefully to open up a variety of new experience and learning opportunities.
We believe children are capable learners and we expect our rooms to act as the 3rd-teacher. Staff are skilful at developing children’s learning, they use open ended questions and encourage children to reflect and hypothesize when experimenting and exploring. Children are encouraged to be creative and we actively encourage free expression. . Project based activities are used to develop children’s interest and take learning to the next level. Staff have a clear intent on what they would like children to learn and this is implemented in a way that engages children, develops curiosity and has a clear impact of their learning and development, each child’s cultural Capital is always taken into consideration as staff plan carefully using the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning.
Outdoor play is an intrinsic part of every ones childhood children are happier when outside and we allow and encourage this behaviour our outdoors is an extension of the indoors and offers a myriad of opportunities.
Children grow from outdoor learning, studying life cycles and habitats. Everything your child needs to develop successfully can be taught and supported by nature. We give children a connection to nature and much of what we provide is developed to meet this need, children love to be outside running, climbing, twisting, turning and investigating
Our school holiday club provides your children with safe places to play, gives them opportunities to learn new skills and engage in a range of new experiences & access to a wide variety of activities.
