The Baby Room ( 6 spaces)
Designed for for the youngest of babies until they are almost toddling. With a modern, earthy, neutral, airy feel, babies will feel like they are being cared for in a homely environment. With specific areas designed for play, rest & feeding for only 6 babies. Parents will also be assured that their baby is in the best possible care in an environment specifically designed to meet their babies holistic needs.
Toddler Rooms (9 spaces)
We love the opportunities & experiences younger toddlers will have access to in this room designed for the ever growing demands of a moving toddler. With areas to get messy, play with floor toys as well as areas to climb, be imaginative & more importantly areas to retreat to relax & watch others when they need to re-charge or just take a moment to make sense of the world. Again the feel of the room has been designed to include lots of neutral, earthy colours that do not over stimulate a child, so their focus can be on learning through their play.
Our toddler rooms also include a soft play room, where younger children can be supporting in developing their physical development.
Preschool Unit ( 24 spaces)
The Preschool Unit has 2 interlinking rooms including engaging areas for both the younger & older Preschooler (2-5 years) with the younger children & older children having their own main main playroom in the Orangery which has direct access to our garden.
Our Creative Room is a dedicated play space for getting messy. Water play, sand, sensory play are always available including access to the painting easel & a selection of readily available craft resources for 'making' pictures & to develop pre-writing skills.
With a modern feel the Preschool provides the ideal learning environment for preschool children enabling staff to follow children's own interests & develop their individual learning methods, whilst being supported by highly qualified preschool team members who can plan to enhance each child's development individually.
