- Age Groups
Doves – six months to two years
Our Doves area gives children a home-from-home feel in a nurtured space for children from six months to two years old. The area provides a stimulating, happy, warm, caring and secure environment.
Parents and the child’s key worker can feel assured that each child’s key person will work closely in partnership with you to provide the highest quality of care. The focus of this area is to be flexible ensuring every baby is nurtured with love and cuddles and their individual routines met.
We offer a range of activities both indoors and outdoors, which encourage and promote all round development, from music to relaxation and physical stimulation to social skills all of which will enable your child to reach their full potential.
Little Finches – two to three years
The Little Finches area provides an environment that stimulates, educates and develops children of two to three years in a happy and secure way.
We provide an environment into which children are welcomed. This room offers table-top activities as well as a quieter comfy area for stories or relaxation. Creative and messy play is always great fun to explore as well as physical equipment with challenging opportunities.
As personal, social and emotional development continues to grow, children are encouraged to share during small group work and free-flow play throughout the room. They are also encouraged with self-care skills such as hand washing and toileting.
Big Finches - three to four years
The Big Finches room provides children with an exciting range of play equipment that will help them develop an array of skills. Great care is taken to choose materials that will create an inspiring sensory experience, and we use toys as well as real life props, such as brushes, gardening tools and small world play, to help build a child’s imagination and language skills.
Construction play is also available to help children develop fine motor skills and problem solving. Our garden offers a range of age appropriate equipment, with tricycles and balance beams as well as stimulating features and sensory play areas such as secret tunnels, a sandpit area, wildlife area and playhouse. All transitions are supported to school with a large emphasis placed on encouragement of independence and self-care.
