Our calm and cosy baby room has been carefully designed to excite and interest little learners, while following the individual needs of each child.
The Seedlings provides a wide range of activities for children to enjoy. The homely carpeted area provides a plethora of toys, books and puzzles enabling children to explore different objects, textures, colours and sounds.
The craft area has child-sized tables and chairs and children can explore mark-making, crafts and messy play, including: painting, sticking, dough, sand and water.
We also use The Saplings outdoor space, where children enjoy playing in the sand pit, playing in the play house and pushing and scooting our ride-on toys.
We have an area for nappy changing and potties for training.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage 2017 Curriculum, concentrating on the three prime areas: Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional and Physical Development. We now have the children's learning journeys online for parents to view and to add information to.
The cosy sleep areas has 3 cots and we follow the daily sleep pattern of each child. Sleeping or resting children are carefully and regularly monitored.
Meals and snacks
Our menus are planned following the Eat Better, Start Better Guidelines, emphasising healthy, balanced and nutritious food and drink. Our meals are made on site using fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables. All meals and snacks are included in the session prices, with the exclusion of formula milk, which parents / carers must provide.
