The Pixie room consists of a
large spacious playroom and
baby changing area. We offer a stimulating
and homely atmosphere for all of the
babies in our care.
The Pixie baby room is situated
at the end of our three play rooms. We provide a range of
activities and equipment to help with all areas of development; these
vary from rattles and books to treasure baskets. There is also space
to encourage a wide range of creative activities such as water, messy
and sensory play. Staff regularly monitor each child's development
throughout their time in our Pixie room.
The Nursery provides a cosy area with
cots for babies to sleep in while the
peaceful environment helps to settle
them off to sleep. Babies enjoy a delicious
lunch of fresh pureed vegetables and fruit
and we begin to introduce other foods
according to each baby's needs. All bottles
are provided by parents and stored in our
milk fridge. The experienced staff
ensures that all babies'
needs are met
throughout the day
closely with parents.
The Gnomes toddler room is situated in the middle of our
three rooms. With a partition separating the Gnomes room
with the Elves room, the children benefit from exploring
a different environment and mixing with other friends.
The room is full of toys and equipment for the children
to play and learn. The staff observe and support the
children playing and interacting and are
therefore able to plan activities to support next
stages of development. Children are encouraged to
gain a range of self-help skills like recognising their
name and putting their shoes on.
The room also has its own
toilet and nappy
changing facilities to
meet the needs of all
potty training children.
The Elves room is split into four groups;
Blue, Red, Yellow and Green. This
enables the children to have short,
small group sessions daily and gives the
children opportunities to work and play
together in the room. Staff observe
and assess the children in their play
and then plan for each child's next steps accordingly.
There are an excellent range of toys and equipment for the children to
enjoy and explore. This helps to make learning fun and successful for all.
For children starting school in September, we liaise with future schools
during the summer term and have regular school transition planning
evenings with parents.
We aim to create a smooth transition from the nursery into school for
