For our youngest infants we offer sensitive baby care encouraging all stages of development through the close attention of key adults and by stimulating their natural curiosity. We follow individual sleep and feeding patterns to maintain consistency with home life and to foster a feeling of security. For toddlers and older children we offer experience in a wide variety of play and learning activities building on their natural desire to make relationships, explore and discover. We encourage their developing social awareness, and help their growing self esteem, self-confidence and independence.
We use careful observation and regular assessment of each child’s development to plan for their play and document all this in an individual Learning Journey.
Our outdoor play areas are a vital resource and the children use them every day.
The nursery has a wide range of carefully chosen toys, books, and equipment that provide children with the stimulation they need for physical mental and emotional growth.
