With a wide range of play equipment available to help children develop a wide array of skills. Great care is taken to choose materials that will create an inspiring sensory experience. As well as toys, we use;
Real life props and Small-world toys to help build a child’s imagination and language skills
Construction play such as building blocks, to help children develop fine motor skills, spatial awareness and problem solving
Physical play equipment such as tricycles, balancing beams and tunnels to encourage physical activity
Creative play to build a child’s imagination, creativity and co-ordination
Supporting social interaction, including role play, den making, and small group activities
A friendly atmosphere is created within our nursery environments, based on warm and caring relationships between our nursery staff and the children in their care. Babies are encouraged to communicate, and their attempts at conversation are valued to ensure they receive an affirming experience, encouraging development, confidence and security. Our nursery staff all act as role models within the setting, and recognise that children lead by example and are constantly learning through observation. Common courtesy, mutual respect and patience are demonstrated at all times throughout our settings.
