Role Play

@BananaMoon - 1 year ago

#News

Have you always wondered what your child is thinking about when they pick up phone and pretend to be on a call with someone? Or thought about their creativity as they picked up a cushion and drove it around pretending that they were driving a car? There are fundamental benefits of children engaging in role play activities to support the enhancing skills that are required for their development. Along with these activities being fun, allowing the children to use their imagination within play improves their creativity, promotes better performance in their education and helps them to develop a strong problem-solving approach when resolving conflict. This is because it allows them to take up characters that act out real life roles.

New Mud Kitchen

@BananaMoon - 1 year ago

#News

A mud kitchen area is often part of a nursery garden set up as it allows children of all ages to experience another example of sensory play and exploring different textures. Children can explore and discover together, gain new skills, show curiosity, investigate, use role play experiences and share space and resources with their friends. Consistency and textures can be changed by adding water to mud, adding natural materials such as herbs, flowers, seeds, and plants from around the garden.

#News

Enquiries and Call Backs On our website there is an enquiry section which can be completed to request a call back. A member of the management team will send you an email or give you a call to discuss your interest in more detail. You will be offered an appointment to attend a tour of the nursery if you wish, which will allow you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and tell us more about you and your family. Trust us - there is never a thing as too many questions! How and When to Sign Up Once you have made a decision that you would like a place with the nursery, please complete the ‘Secure my Place’ form which will be given to you on the tour and return to the nursery as soon as possible. Once availability has been confirmed for the requested sessions, we will send the bank details to send your £50 non-refundable registration fee. Your child will be added to our system and your paperwork to be completed prior to your child’s first settle session will be sent out to you. The decision of when you think the time is right, is up to you. Some parents will begin to look for nursery placements a few months in advance to ensure the nursery can accommodate the days and sessions they require; however, other families take a longer time to make this decision, which is okay too. If we are not able to fulfil your request, we will offer you alternative sessions and the opportunity to be added to the waiting list for when the original requested sessions do become available.

Early Years Reading

@BananaMoon - 2 years ago

#News

Developing a love of reading in children from an early age is crucial in the development of a child. It supports their ability to understand words, as well as encouraging them to develop their imagination – seeing things and imagining things all by themselves. Reading to children from an early age also has benefits to development of communication and language. It develops their speech, improves concentration, and introduces children to new concepts and the world around them. Both parents and early years practitioners play a vital role. The more a child is exposed to books and is read to from a young age, the more likely they are to gain an interest and passion for them and how they make them feel.
