Whilst your child is here we do so many things:
We play with playdough, clay and with sand and water. We get messy with cornflour and water, gloop, shaving foam and mud.
We look at books. We learn about different people and cultures. We learn to recognise letters and numbers and words. We copy the stories in our play and best of all we love to cuddle up together and listen to stories.
We paint, draw, pretend to write, cut out and glue. We make collages and prints. We learn to use scissors and to be creative.
We sing songs and make music, we listen to music from different countries, we dance and learn new songs. We make instruments and make music with them.
We make friends and learn about sharing, taking turns and respecting people, we learn to mix with children who may be older or younger than us. We learn about the rules and how to say "Sorry" if we upset someone.
We go to the parks and local play centres. We visit the library, toddler groups and messy play groups. We go to the beaches and farms. We find out about our local environment and to be safe when we cross the roads. We go on Nature Walks and learn about the seasons.
We go to the shops and markets to buy fresh vegetables for our lunch which we can help to prepare. We share meals together and try foods from different cultures. We celebrate Birthdays and Festivals from around the world. We learn about eating healthy food and keeping our bodies healthy. We learn about hygiene and how to wash our hands after using the toilet and before touching food.
We play outside. We run and jump and climb and ride and explore.
We learn that after we have done all this our bodies will need a rest to recover!
Children will look forward to spending their day with me and can’t wait to find out what adventures are awaiting them.
Setting Opening Times – 9am - 3pm
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays – Term Time & Holiday Care
Our home is friendly and full of fun. We have an enclosed garden and a playroom full of stimulating toys, arts and crafts, books, learning resources, games and puzzles. I offer children the opportunity to take part in planned activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework to promote development and well being.
I also offer a wide range of outings; going to the local market and shops, going to the local parks, the library, farms, beaches, nature walks, swimming, local play sessions and places, we also take Archie out on a daily walk.
Toys and resources in the setting are rotated weekly, so that the children are excited to discover, what toys are set up each week in the setting for them. Children will be offered a wide range of activities to cover a broad curriculum promoting learning and development.
Planning will be shared with parents each week, so you will know what to expect your child to be doing in the setting and a daily update in your child’s tapestry learning journey will be give you an insight to the activities they got involved in and enjoyed through the day. The wide curriculum offered in the setting is observed and recorded in each child’s memory book which you will get to take home each term with a complete learning and development assessment, showing you how much your child has developed over the term and what areas we can work in partnership to promote over the coming term.
