This is a lovely room with an ensuite kitchen and spacious play room which holds 12 children. This unit is set up to enhance your baby's development through plenty of staff interaction, free play and lots of love and cuddles.
The room has neutral walls providing a calming and relaxing environment alongside lots of natural resources such as treasure baskets, wooden blocks and lots of sensory play. The staff plan the room and activities around each child's developmental stages and their interests to support their development.
We have a lovely enclosed garden which we use to develop physical skills and allows the children to explore the outdoors. We also regularly take the children for walks using our fantastic triple stroller around the lovely village to see the animals such as the ducks, swans and birds on the lakes and to explore the local parks, fields and woodland to support the children's development.
This is our older baby room for children 1-2 years and once the babies are confident on their feet.

The Inventors Room incorporates the EYFS 7 areas of learning for all the children with a dedicated area for each aspect. The children are encouraged to learn through playing in and outdoors freely. We visit forest school twice a week.
We also have a programme for children who will be going to school the following academic year that ensures we are supporting the transition. Using a daily routine we find ways to promote independence and offer quieter, more focussed activities each morning.
Each key person plans individual and group activities each week using the children's interests and parents input to extend each child's learning to support them achieve set next steps.
Before and After School/Holiday Club
We offer a before and after school club for children aged 4-14 years old. The room provides a relaxing and fun environment for the children to play with a variety of resources such as construction, ICT, painting, and mark making, all to their own choosing.
Open from 7:30am, we offer the children a variety of breakfast cereals and toasts when they come in to give them the best start to the day. The children then have free play before they are taken to school either by foot or our nursery cars. We drop off and collect from 4 local schools. Once collected, the children are given a small snack tea then free play with quieter spaces for homework too.
We provide a Holiday Club during the school holidays from 7:30-18:00 with planned activities every day, morning and afternoon. The activities include outings to the cinema, parks, local nature walks, fishing and sports activities such as football, rounders and rugby. The children also enjoy free play in the room as well as planned activities like bird feed making, cookery, baking, pottery painting and much much more!
