We follow the guidelines from the Birth to Five Framework, which sets the standards for; Learning, development and care for children under the following four themes and principles;
Themes Principles
1. A unique child Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
2. Positive Relationships Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and /or a key person.
3. Enabling Environments The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending childrens development and learning.
4. Learning and Development Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and interconnected.

A brightly coloured soft surface play area, with a selection of shapes and designs to play on, including a road and roundabout feature for trikes and bikes.

Our lawn area is a great place for playing bat and ball games, bouncing on the trampoline and exploring the climbing frames. During the summer months we make the most of the garden, by having story time and snack outside under the shade of a tree or a gazebo.

For children under 2yrs, in addition to the previously described garden, we have a fenced lawn area, where your child can play safely as they begin to crawl and take their first steps.
