Our Setting

  • Learning Through Play

    Our aim is to help each child meet their unique potential, by encouraging their curiosity and allowing them to explore and play.

    Learning through play is a crucial part of children’s development, where each child can learn to make sense of the world around them. Play is a fun and meaningful way to learn. Through play, children develop problem-solving skills, imagination and creativity, language and observation skills, and memory and concentration.

    With this in mind, we offer a huge range of activities and we aim to make learning fun so that your child feels positive and confident about learning.

  • Outdoor Learning

    Children love to explore. There are many benefits to outdoor learning which helps build confidence, independence and is essential to children’s health and wellbeing.

    Our enclosed garden area creates experiences for children to discover the outside world every day in all weathers and seasons while benefiting from an abundance of fresh air.

    Learning opportunities are endless; growing vegetables in our sensory garden, listening to the birds and nature around them and using natural materials such as sand, mud and water to promote discovery and imaginative play in our mud kitchen area.

  • Home Learning

    We believe that offering a range of opportunities for parents to become involved in their children’s learning is important. We work in partnership with our families and encourage parents to extend and support their child’s learning at home. A joined up, holistic approach with open channels of communication has many benefits to the child, parent and practitioner.

  • Tapestry Journal

    Our online system we use to record a learning journey to celebrate your child’s progress. You will receive regular observations from your child’s key worker and we encourage parents to add observations which allow us to plan more effectively.

  • Class Bear

    Each child will have the opportunity to take home our class teddies. We encourage the children to share their adventures by drawing, taking photos and with the help of their family writing about the exciting things they have shared with our teddies. Their adventures will be shared with the class and the key worker will take observations from the book and link them to your child’s development and next steps in learning.

  • Library

    When children are engaged in reading and listening to stories, they often build those stories into their play. We operate a library where the children can select a book to take home and share with their family. The classroom library plays an important role in creating a high-quality early childhood learning experience that enriches language and vocabulary development.
