To the rear of the nursery, we have a large garden which is covered in artificial grass which means the children are able to access it in all weather conditions.
We have a purpose-built ‘Flower Pots Village’ in which the staff create role play areas for the children to explore and play in. These can range from reading areas, home corners, construction zones, hairdressers and many other themes.
Adeyfield Nursery Rooms
Birth - 16 Months
Weather allowing, we take the babies outside every day where we have floor mats, push along cars and climbing activities. Our baby room has its own ball pit, soft play climbing furniture and more.
There is also a separate sleep room and an adjoining dining room just for our babies.
16 Months - 2 Years
Our Tweenie children are aged approximately eighteen months to two years. This room expands over two areas which allow children to socialise, explore and engage in different environments and situations.
Our French doors into the garden allow free flow, giving the children endless opportunities to learn and explore at their own wish. Taking the indoors outside allows the children independence of choice.
The children will have the option of tabletop and floor activities with a mix of adult-led and child-initiated play. In Tweenie’s, the children have the opportunity to potty train as we have child height toilets and/or potties for your child’s preference.
2 Years - 2 Years 7 Months
Our Toddler room is for children from two years until they are two years and ten months. Within the Toddler room, we offer opportunities to gain confidence through independent activities; self-serving their meals and drinks, choosing activities of their own interests and helping to dress themselves.
Children will start to have more focused activities such as carrying out fine motor activities, looking at books, shapes and everyday objects within the environment. Within this room children are encouraged to potty train (all children develop at different stages so we work with parents for when the child is ready).
2 Years 7 Months - 3 Years 6 months
Our preschool room is for ages two years ten months to three years six months. Within this room, the children are getting ready to move on to the classroom so this room starts to create more structure for the children, covering more focused activities with a purpose such as; pencil control, sorting and grouping, exploring how things work in detail and letter and number recognition.
The children have opportunities for child-led play and the staff incorporates their likes and interests in order to carry out engaged and stimulating activities.
3 Years 6 Months - 5 Years
Our classroom is for ages three years six months to five years. Within this room, it is their final phase before going to school. There is a lot more focus on getting them ready for school and this is where we focus deeper on their recognition of sounds, letters, rhyming words and grouping.
The children throughout the day carry out child-led activities and play and have their own two-story playhouse to continue their language and imagination. The classroom has its own courtyard where children are able to engage in planting and growing, it is self-contained so encourages full independence.
The children also have the opportunity to use the interactive tablet filled with lots of educational games too.
