Our nursery environment and facilities enable your child to explore, develop and learn. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool spaces are specially designed and equipped especially with them in mind. You’ll see many familiar homely items such as bookcases, tables, chairs, and sofas just much smaller than you are used to!

We consider the spaces around your child to be like their third teacher, joining you as parents and us as educators in guiding them through their learning. And you’ll notice how we use our garden area as an outdoor classroom too, full of features to support their play and learning. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool rooms are perfect for the ages of children that spend their time in them.

We keep many aspects of our nursery environments consistent as we know your child will benefit greatly from this. With core resources, enriching toys, puzzles and creative materials, that are always at hand for your child to play with. However, it is not unusual for parts of our nursery to become unique adventure places where your child’s imagination can run free!

Babies Environment

Non-mobile babies benefit from the large, bright, open-plan day room, well equipped with the latest in sensory equipment to stimulate their senses during their formative months. As babies spend a lot of time sleeping at this early age, we provide a dedicated sleep room.

We constantly monitor the temperature to ensure the babies are comfortable and the integrated glass wall allows us to monitor the children at all times. There are never more than three babies to any one member of staff. 

Our babies enjoy free flow access onto their own front garden to enjoy outdoor activities like mark making. 

Toddlers Environment

When your child moves up a stage, their day is structured around their changing interests. Our nursery facilities and equipment has been carefully selected, allowing your child to discover at their individual level of understanding.

The room focuses on the primary area’s of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage‘ framework and encourages learning through play. We have created various dedicated areas offering different activities.

The room has a story corner where children can sit in a group and listen to stories, home corner area, sand and water play area, a construction area to develop coordination and a messy play area for getting mucky.

Toddlers also benefit from a staffing ratio of one member of staff looking after no more than four children and supervised access to our fantastic garden.

As this is the time when the majority of children start ‘toilet training’, this area is equipped with children’s toilets, encouraging independence.

Preschool Environment

Preschool children also follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’. We support them and prepare them for their eventual move from day nursery to school. This is a more settled routine, with children working in small groups.

The children have open access to the garden every day (free flow) from their room and complete a lot of their daily activities outside through choice. The garden also reflect the areas of learning and allows problem solving on a grander scale.

Outdoor Environment

Our specially designed outdoor area has a separate garden for babies and older children, that children can access every day whatever the weather is. We also have an all-weather outdoor play area which allows the children to explore the outdoors on a free flow basis. Children enjoy playing outside a lot and we actively encourage this therefore it is important that the children are appropriately dressed for the weather as one famous says goes.
“There is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing.”

Trips and Visits

All our children get the opportunity to go on local educational trips, and whether it be to the local shops or places of interest, we always risk assess our outings to ensure children are safe and secure while they are out and about. 

We organise a variety of outings, trips and various experiences for all age groups. For example:

  • Visit to local supermarket
