Our aim is to provide a loving, secure environment for the babies. Working closely with parents we will ensure that the babies’ routine remains as close to that already established at home, emphasising consistency and continuity. We aim to care for and develop the babies in a homely, cosy environment. The room also has its own sleep room with dimmed lights which aids the sleep process.
Within this room the key person role still remains extremely important, as the children’s individual care routines are fundamental to a child’s progress. In this room the children have lots of space to practice their skills in many different areas, especially their physical skills.
Activities are planned and repeated throughout the week, which are based around the children’s interests and their next steps of learning and development. This enables the key person to work on each of their individual key children’s progress through fun activities which they can try again.
As the children move into this group the structure of the day changes as the children are emotionally able to have more structure added to their day. The Lily group share the upper floor with the older children. Care routines are still extremely important to this age as they learn to use the potty and then toilet, still need a sleep and assistance with dressing themselves. With this age group independence is promoted with children being encouraged and helped to be able to do these things independently by the time they move into the Sunflower group.
Our pre school unit is divided into 2 rooms. Our rising 3 room and pre school room both hold 21 children each. In these rooms we are preparing our children for school. We offer a variety of opportunities to enable children to gain the necessary skills they will need when they leave us to go into school.
We have a Early Years teacher in lour pre school room, who ensures our children are school ready, tailoring their learning through our robust curriculum.
