When children’s age and stage of development is appropriate and after discussion with parents, children begin to transition to the Sunshine room adopting a more challenging and varied approach to the day.
The Sunshine room offers an excellent choice of learning opportunities for children including sand and water play, music, physical activity, arts and crafts, construction activities, table top games and much more. We introduce early numeracy and literacy skills and activities designed to develop your child’s communication skills.
Our outdoor area for babies and toddlers is safe and secure with a decked area, artificial grass, dens, sensory areas, large sand pits along with a wide variety of stimulating outdoor play equipment. Children regularly enjoy visits to the nearby park, walks within the community and stories at the local library.
Parents receive a daily diary at the end of each day. This is a great communication link for the child’s Keyworker to be able to report back on experiences your child has taken part in throughout the day and for parents to feedback. It also informs parents about feeding and changing routines
Parents and grandparents are invited to our fun seasonal rhyme times and enjoy joining in with their children with action songs and rhymes for events such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
Children’s progress and attainment is recorded regularly on their Learning Journals by staff. Parents will be given a unique and individual sign in code enabling parents to login and follow your own child’s progress throughout their time at nursery. The profile can be viewed at any time. Parents are encouraged to contribute to your child’s learning journals throughout their journey.
Staff are guided by the Pre-Birth to Three document and Building the Ambition.
We adhere to staff: child ratios as set by the Care Inspectorate.
