Giant Steps Day Nursery
Rooms at Laverstock
The stable room is situated on the right hand side of the main mobile unit. Originally one room, a centre partrician was installed in January 2021 to allow for smaller personal spaces for the toddlers in our care to feel safe and secure. The younger side caters for a maximum of 7 children. The room leads out to a secure part of the outdoor area, allowing at appropriate times of the year access and free choice between indoor and outdoor areas where all areas of learning are accessible.
The side which caters for a maximum of 8 older toddlers has direct access to the bathroom area, making trips easier for those currently toilet training.
The room supports children's learning building on their experiences, many of which are shared from home, through close parent partnerships.
"The youngest children have good opportunities to use their senses to explore and investigate." (OFSTED Report 2018)
The children also get to explore the wider area on the farm, visiting the animals and seeing changes around us. We like to explore all weathers including rain and snow which enhances our learning.
