Babies (6 mths – 2years)

Our baby room is colourful and stimulating and accommodates 12 babies aged 6 months to 2 years. We focus on tactile and sensory activities with our babies to encourage their development. There is also an adjoining milk prep room, nappy room and sleep room as well as an outdoor play area that is specifically for our babies.

Our babies individual routines are followed for feeding and sleep times. As they develop and we feel they are ready, we begin to progress towards our nursery routine.

Pre School Unit – 3 years+

Our pre school room accommodates 24 children aged 3 to 5 years and is made up of many well-resourced areas that reflect the real world. The room is currently ran by a qualified teacher and although the emphasis is still strongly on learning through play, your childs day may become slightly more structured to prepare them for school. Your child will have access to the large outdoor play area shared with the toddlers.

The age restrictions on our three groups are only guidelines and can be flexible. If we feel your child is ready and would benefit from moving into the next group then through consultation with yourselves and availability we will do so.
