Magicians (under 2s)
‘There is no other beginning of learning than wonder’ Theaetetus
Our Large open plan Magicians room is bright & airy with an abundance of natural light. Resources are set up to engage both mobile & non-mobile babies and encourage physical, social, and emotional development and early communication skills. The space allows for children to explore freely & with support from our specialist baby staff team. Sensory and messy play activities are in abundance and staff engage children with music, movement & stories. Sand, water & malleable materials are always available. We believe in free flow into the garden & have the door pinned open for children to move and explore inside & outside.
Our calming Dream Room is a peaceful place where light sleepers and young babies can rest and a quiet place for all our Magicians to have relax and sensory time.
There will never be more than three babies to one member of staff to ensure all children have the essential attention they need. Your baby will have their own dedicated key person to take care of all their personal needs wherever possible.
Creators (Over 2s)
‘Every child is an artist.’ Picasso
When your child is ready, usually around their second birthday, we will gently transition them up to our Creators floor and new key person to support the next stage of their journey. This is a free flow floor incorporating a large, light & airy space with free flow onto our second outdoor terrace, children’s bathroom with rainbow toilet cubicles, potty training & nappy changing, and our school-readiness ‘Masters Room’
We plan activities inspired by children’s interests and set up daily with environments to spark imagination & learning through play. Different areas allow children to explore creative arts & messy play, investigation and early science, role-play, social group time, gardening, ICT, literacy, maths & physical play. Sand & water and malleable materials are also available.
The children’s day has more balance between some structure and freedom to explore and learn through play.
‘Children are not things to be moulded, but people to be unfolded’ Jess Lair
Our Masters Room has a greater emphasis on school readiness & focused activities. Once children reach preschool age, they will spend more time here, developing the skills needed to be confident, independent individuals as they embark on their school journey.
Across our Creators and Masters floor we have a wonderful group of highly qualified staff, passionate about each child’s learning & development, many of which hold Qualified Teacher Status or degrees in Early Years Education.
Extra-Curricular & Trips
Included within your nursery fees, we put on a wide variety of extra-curricular groups within the nursery week with qualified external specialists. These classes change to offer variety but include yoga, dance, music, Spanish & Forest school. Please enquire with us to find out about our current programme. Children are taken out on regular trips to the surrounding area and community to enhance their learning.
