We provide quality care and learning experiences in our three rooms which cater to the following age groups:
The Nest Room
Our baby room
We offer places for babies from 3 months of age. We appreciate the importance of individual routines at this age and work closely with parents to ensure a personal approach for each child. We have a separate sleep room and nappy change facilities. At this age, play and learning is very exploratory and discovery based with all five senses involved.
In the nest room you will see:
- Treasure baskets - encouraging children/s natural curiosity investigating "real life" items.
- Messy play - paint, gloop, water, play dough.
- Books and songs.
- Black and white area
- Music area
- Exploring the outside world - watching trees sway in the wind, listening to birds singing.
- Physical play - tummy time, developing balance and control.
- Cuddles and quality one-to-one time with a key person.
The Tree Room
Our toddler room
Our Toddler room caters to children from 18 months of age depending on their development.
Our toddler room has been carefully designed to provide the best experiences for our children. Each day our activities are engaging, bringing new challenges, as well as providing familairity..
Active learning and the desire to be involved in new experiences is what we foster and encourage amongst our toddler children. We motivate them to try new things and to enjoy different experiences which helps and supports them to feel a sense of achievement as well as the skill to keep on trying!
The sky room
Our preschool room
Children usually move up to the preschool room before their third birthday.
Our day is flexible yet brings elements of structure and challenge. Practitioners plan activities using current interests taken from observations and conversations with the children - therefore our children gain new knowledge through the planned experiences linked to events, seasons and celebrations. We recently enjoyed a visit from Joanna, a paramedic who came and introduced the children to the important role she plays in helping people.
The OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT
Children learn so much from outdoor play. At Fledglings Day Nursery children have access to outdoor play daily as this is highly emphasised in the EYFS. Children have the opportunity to go outside no matter the weather.
As children run around outside they are learning about the effect physical exercise has on their bodies Being outdoors helps so many areas of children’s learning and development, they learn to build confidence in themselves, they learn about problem-solving and socialising with other children. When outdoors children learn about risk taking, practitioners feel that children learn vital skills when risk taking.
Our back garden is specially designed for our younger children aged 0-3. Our 3-5 year olds have their own outdoor area with more challenging resources and materials. In both our outdoor areas we have made use of natural and recycled materials. These open ended resources encourage children to use their imaginations and problem solve.
