All our settings have age appropriate rooms, each with equipment that is regularly safety checked for durability. Our rooms are managed by an experienced and dedicated team. The toys and activities available to your child are ideally suited to their stage of development, enabling staff to encourage exploration and learning at the child’s own pace. We venture outside every day unless the weather is very extreme.
Little Blues (six weeks – 18 months)
Minimum staff to child ratio – 1:3
At this very early age babies are simply taking in their environment, observing its rich sights, smells, textures and sounds. Learning how to respond, move and control their bodies; all major keystones for our ‘Little Blues’. The team focus on gentle, tactile activities whilst ensuring that younger children feel happy, safe and settled as they transition from home to nursery life.
We encourage social skills from the outset with plenty of interactive play and, for older children, daily circle time activity. This includes group singing, celebration of key dates such as birthdays and welcoming new children to the group.
Rock Hoppers (18 – 36 months)
Minimum staff to child ratio – 1:4
The team encourage children to climb, run and jump as language, mobility and dexterity develop. Enthusiasm for inquisitive exploration is nurtured, whilst children challenge themselves both physically and imaginatively.
Emperors (three – five years)
Minimum staff to child ratio – 1:8
With increasing independence, we begin to see individual characteristics at this stage in your child’s development. On joining the room, children are supported with key life skills such as toilet training, feeding themselves and getting dressed. Social skills are encouraged through group activities and clear learning objectives are pursued entirely through purposeful play.
