Introducing new skills to explore and investigate in order to increase independence in a safe stimulating environment.
We have weekly dance classes with Miss Holly from HR Danceworks in both our Blossom Room and Pre-School. These classes promote creativeness and freedom for children to express themselves through movement and dance, as well as developing friendships and social interaction, improving co-ordination, strengthening muscles and developing flexibility.
A world of storytelling awaits inside our new tree tent. Reading from an early age is crucial in the development of children. It helps with their ability to understand words, use their imagination and develop their speech, as well as being something they really enjoy.
Independence is introduced throughout our Blossom Room where children are encouraged to serve their own food and pour their own drinks. When independence grows a child's confidence also grows. As they master new skills or take on some responsibility, they begin to see themselves as being capable. This gives them added confidence and makes them more likely to try out new things.
Children have daily access to our soft play area. Physical activity is vital for a child's development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life.
