Areas

The nursery provides many experiences for your child to explore and take safe risk.

These will include:

Indoor areas

Snack time: 

Snack time provides opportunity for the children to try healthy foods. As well as become independent in choosing and serving their own snack using tongs and jugs to pour milk or water.

Snack time also provides a quiet moment for reflection where children are able to develop social skills through interactions with others.

Role-play/ home corner: 

Where children can create their own imaginary play, and invite others to come and share i.e. lets be a King, a Queen, Mum or Dad and have a chat and a cup of tea.

Role Play

Mark-making: 

Children are born with a natural exploratory drive and desire to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Through their play and imaginary and abstract worlds, they create meanings by making marks, and drawing.

Book/ cosy area: 

A place to relax and even take a nap on the soft cushions. Also, a place to share a book, with an adult or friends.

Mark-making:

Chalkboards, painting easels, floors and fences provide opportunities for children to express their thoughts and ideas by creating lines, circles and pictures.

Constructing:

Using natural products to create structures that will develop and enhance their play. Learning how to use tools and equipment safely and to develop small and gross motor skills.
