Sunshine Room

The Sunshine Room is led by one of the owners of the Nursery. As a trained teacher she works with her team of three nursery nurses to support the 14 children. This high adult:child ration ensures that each child is able to continue to build a strong foundation of skills upon which the rest of their learning can be based.

The emphasis continues to be on learning through play, and the children's learning is divided into six areas:

  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Mathematical development
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

The planned activities fulfill all educational Ofsted requirements. However it is our aim to far exceed these by enriching the children's experiences through our range of specialist teachers.

These include:

  • A wonderful artist who, as a qualified early years teacher can plan and provide a range of activities that give the children a very special introduction to creative activities. Under her care the children design and complete mosaics for the garden, create beautiful models using natural objects, paint and draw with care and attention to detail.
  • French is also taught to the children using a combination of stories, puppets and music. The children love to practise their new vocabulary and do so with increasing confidence.
  • Music is enjoyed daily and our music specialist develops the concentration of these children by including drama in the music sessions. They enjoy a range of activities including setting traditional tales from around the world to music.
  • The children in the Sunshine Room enjoy a weekly Yoga lesson within the nursery with Bryony; all children really get stuck in.

The children also enjoy visits to local places of interest and further afield to widen their experiences of the world.
