This room is very spacious, with huge front facing windows making it light and airy and thereby a perfect environment for a child to feel inspired. It accommodates many different areas for your child to learn and develop in areas such as maths & literacy, science, art, music etc through a work bench with real tools, the house corner, small world etc. All areas are well resourced and all activities are linked into the 'Pre-birth to Three' and 'Curriculum for Excellence' documents. All ages and stages are catered for with experienced staff constantly on hand.
The children's day is very flexible, with a rolling snack being provided with open doors through to the kitchen so the children can make the choice as to when they want to stop what they are doing to go through. There is a very child led approach the room which ensures that the children's individual interests and needs are being met.
There is access to a fantastic outdoor garden with a story hut, mud kitchen, bug hotel, fishing boat and even a bath to explore and let their imagination run free. The indoor learning opportunities are followed through and brought outside so that there is a continuous chance for development. We have a French teacher who attends each week with the pre-school children.
Both sections of the nursery participate in a variety of outings such as visiting the park, the library, farm or museum regularly. Learning journals are used to track all the children's development which parents have access to as well as a private Facebook page allowing parents to see their children 'having fun'.
