Our nursery promotes a cosy, home-like space so that children feel comfortable and loved as soon as they walk in the door.
Our newly converted barn offers a large open space with lovely high ceilings. With natural light and warm lighting to create a calm and welcoming space for children.
Within the barn, there will be space for all children to explore, investigate and relax.
Our baby room is nestled within the barn, with a safe seperate area to ensure we meet the needs of every child aged from 6 months up until they are ready to move on into the larger space.
The baby room will be inside the preschool room; but in its own private area. This means that all staff and children can build strong relationships and work together.
The baby room will be a calm, accessible space where the children feel at ease and safe. With exciting activities on offer each day and new things to explore, the baby room offers so much.
The babies will have their own private free-flow access to a separate outdoor space, specially created just for them- where they may even have outdoor naps!
Once they are ready, the babies will move on from their space into the larger room where they can explore more challenging and imaginative based play. They will begin to spend more time in the outdoors and work alongside some of our pre-school children too, encouraging social skills and friendships.
They will take part in activities that develop independence and self-care skills.
In the outdoors, they will be able to explore the larger space more freely, where they will be encouraged to manage risk and build resilience through forest school sessions.
The pre-school children will be based in the outdoor environment for the most part of their days. They will take part in all kinds of learning outside, using open-ended resources.
They will be responsible for taking care of the allotment, taking care of animals and preparing and cooking food on the fire.
They will have fun in the wood work shed, art zone, mud kitchen, wildlife area, daily forest school sessions and so much more!
If the weather is not on our side we have a wonderful yurt to keep us warm and of course, use of the indoor space when they please.
