Ladybird room is a large spacious room that is available for Two and Three year olds. Children enjoy play and activities planned for their specific age of development. Often this is the first time children may have been left in a setting without their parents. Staff sympathetically support the child and by working with their family to find the best ways to help them settle. This is usually a gradual process building on short times of separation until the child becomes secure and happy to be left.

We try to avoid children becoming too distressed or anxious, as we want children to enjoy their time with us and have positive feelings.

Children in Ladybird room have direct access to the outdoors and spend some time in the garden every day. Waterproof suits allow children to experience the benefits of the natural world in all weathers!

 

•Calm, relaxing atmosphere

•Spacious room with cosy areas to explore

•Separate sleep area

•Self-contained kitchen area

•Direct access to shady secure garden

Our Starlight room is calm and comfortable with soft cushions, rugs and carpets that allow our smallest children space to explore. Activities are floor-based although sofas not only provide a special place for a cuddle, but also a support for babies to pull themselves up when they are ready to start taking their first steps.

Sensory experiences, such as water play, gloop, silky scarves, are planned for each child by their key person. Singing, stories, cuddles and giggles are shared throughout the day.  Little ones can start to make choices by crawling into the cosy baskets to play or have a nap whenever they want.

Staff follow children’s individual routines in partnership with their parents. Let us know the best times for your child to eat and rest and we will keep you informed on what has happened throughout their day with us.

Our outdoor area is accessible from Starlight room – children can crawl through the wide doors onto the soft surface. However, they have the chance to explore other textures such as the pathway and the grass as well as listen to the wind rustling through the trees and the birds singing.

Sunshine room is the next step for our bigger toddlers who are steadier on their feet and ready to become more independent explorers. A range of activities are available for children to choose such as simple role play, sand & water, exploring paint etc. The staff plan for their key children taking into account what they know about their children, what parents tell us and what they children are interested in or enjoy.

The children also have direct access to the garden they share with the babies as well as opportunities to play in our large Orchard garden. Here there are hills, paths, trees as well as a challenging bridge over a muddy patch where moisture-loving plants grow.

The children in sunshine room eat their meals together at the table, which supports them in developing good relationships and social skills with their friends and the adults in the room.

Here in Rainbow Room the children have access to a wide range of activities appropriate for their level of development.  Role-play, painting, sensory activities as well as construction, drawing, imaginative play, puzzles and games are all available throughout the day. Sharing stories and books, singing and dancing take place spontaneously allowing children to take control and express their delight and enjoyment.

The large Orchard garden gives all the children opportunity to experience the natural environment with large spaces to move as well as small spaces to explore and be imaginative. Children’s physical skills are helped to develop with bikes and scooters, hills to run up and down and a wooden bridge that needs good balance and careful negotiation.

Our very own Orchard provides apples, pears, plums and cherries that the children can help to harvest at the end of summer. They can watch the trees changing throughout the year and experience first-hand the blossom turning into fruit.
