Ground Floor

 

This is our Caterpillar Room where the younger children are cared for until they move upstairs. Staff work on a 1:3 ratio.

 

There is a large open plan room that has a wide variety of toys and activities for the children

Another room used for meals and at other times for table top games and creative   activities.

There is also a small messy area where the children can engage in activities such as sand and water play and messy activities i.e.  Spaghetti, jelly play and creative activities.

Also a small dark, quite room with cots and  stacking beds where the children can rest and sleep.

 

The daily routine is very flexible and we encourage a working partnership with parents in order to ensure the best care for their children.

 

As often as possible our staff take the children for short walks to local parks, the library or down to the river to feed the ducks.
