learning through play

Our philosophy is learning through play and we encourage the children to follow their individual interests and learn in a way which suits their personal learning style. We also have a theme which we base adult led planning around to extend children’s learning and experiences.

The mixed age groups within the room have a positive effect on the children, as the older and more experienced children help and encourage the younger ones, who are in turn inspired to try the activities their peers are taking part in. The physical environment is adapted to facilitate wheelchair access with ramps and wide door ways, low level sinks and disabled toileting facilities. The staff are trained to meet the needs of the individual child, and we will work with parents to accommodate their child’s specific care or education needs.
