Toys & Resources

I build learning into everyday activities. I listen to and hold interesting conversations with the children ensuring I support and compliment what children learn at home and school. I also ensure I discuss with parents about your child’s progress, development and daily routine.
I ensure I provide play and other activities that allow children to experiment and see how various materials behave and can be used. In this way children can learn to solve problems, learn to think imaginatively and develop confidence.

All our activities are linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Planning your child’s day is so important and is based on what you as parents tell me. If you have visited a farm at the weekend or been to the seaside for example, please let me know, these are excellent ways of extending your child’s development based on what you have done at home.
