The crèche little feet room has a routine which revolves around each child’s individual needs.
Each child is appointed a ‘key worker’ who is a member of staff responsible for the child’s day to day care, and also ensures that both child and parent are happy and content within the setting. Each child’s individuality is catered for through fun filled and stimulating activities.
The little feet room has a wide range of toys and materials suitable for children under 2. A wide open planned room with comfortable spaces ensures plenty of opportunities for quiet time, crawling, and learning to walk. A written record is shared with parents about each child’s daily routine.
The room includes a large wall mirror, soft toys, large windows with plenty of natural light and wonderful views of outdoor nature.

There is time for children to be calm and relaxed as well as being included in group activities. Outdoor play is always encouraged and social skills are developed through sharing, helping others, and turn taking.
A routine is followed which encourages independence and a sense of security in children.

and reaching their individual potential before they
begin full time education.
The busy hands room includes large outdoor windows which
bring in plenty of natural light and views of outdoor nature,
access to outdoor play area, and large wall displays which
follow an 8 week theme.
Resources in the busy hands room include:
Sand and water play
Messy play area.
Mark making and painting area.
T.V and DVD, Wii console
Quiet area for jigsaws, books and games.

Outdoor play plays an important part in each child’s routine.
Outdoor play enhances many aspects of development including
physical and sensory development.
We make the most of the large outdoor play area within our setting which includes a slide and climbing frame, and also a grassed area where children can learn about nature through a variety of ways.
We also try our best to take the children for walks outside of the setting.
We have some wonderful walkways and parks in the surrounding
area and we try and visit them as often as we can especially during warmer months.
