2 ½ -3 year olds:
The staff provide lots of support and encouragement for your child’s development. The emphasis here is also on allowing children to become much more independent and to help them develop greater concentration skills. Social skills are encouraged both within free play, for sharing and caring; and at meal and snack times to develop an ability to sit whilst eating and learning to wait their turn (when appropriate). Each activity will allow your child time to explore and discover.
After lunch, there is time for a sleep if your child needs it. The amount of sleep each child needs varies immensely so please discuss this with us. Children who do not need a sleep will have quite–time activities. The staff are awear that the children in their care are still quite young and do, of course, need lots of individual attention.
3-5 year olds:
We organise our day so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and in doing so build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.
Children are actively involved in the planning process to ensure that their individual needs are met.
Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. The children have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor play. We take the chidren out side during the morning and the afternoon as we fill that this plays a very important part of there development. We have a covered area in our court yard and a lovely back garden with many different areas to explore and investigate,
