Our nurturing and stimulating Baby Bee’s room provides a calm, and comfortable space where babies can explore a full range of sensory and tactile experiences with natural open-ended objects to touch, listen to, taste and smell. The resources are attractively organised so that the babies can see and learn about others and be socially comfortable. The children can move easily from one area to another, promoting physical skills such as rolling, sitting, crawling and pulling themselves up.
We feel it is vital that each child in our playrooms has a continuous routine which reflects their home life. We therefore encourage lots of Parent and Carers involvement in their child’s changing routines. Parents and Carers are actively encouraged to advise their child’s Key Worker of any changes in sleep pattern, physical development and feeding needs. This ensures that the transition between home life and nursery is consistent. The children have access to an area of the nursery garden where the children can get fresh air as well as triple prams to enjoy exploring our local community and wildlife.
Over 30 Years Experience in the childcare & development sector
Our inspiring and lovely Honey Bee’s room provides a space where children can feel settled, happy and promotes opportunity for development and learning. The environment is arranged so children can move around with ease, by pulling themselves up, cruising around furniture and learning to walk. The children have a variety of resource that are made attractive and accessible, encouraging them to make choices about where and how they play.
Our staff are responsive to babies ever changing routines and will adapt this to suit how individuals likes to be fed, changed and rest throughout the day. The children have access to an area of the nursery garden where the children can get fresh air. The garden has a range of ride on toys, climbing frame, swings and other open-ended resources.
Purpose built play areas to capture your child’s interests
The under 3 age groups endorses the Pre-Birth to Three: Positive Outcomes for Scotland’s Children and Families approach which leads to the highest quality provision for all babies and children in their very earliest years. In our Bumble Bee room, we nurture your child through the transition of being reliant on an adult to the desire for independence and give children opportunities to play in groups. This encourages a growing awareness of playing alongside and together with friends. We will focus and build on their recognition of emotions such as feeling happy, sad, frustrated and will calmly support them in coping with these on a daily basis.
Staff will work directly with the children to highlight a growing awareness of the need for simple rules and being able to respond to basic structures such as: preparing snack and getting ready to go outside. In the 2-3 room the children will have daily access to our nursery garden to look at and investigate the immediate environment. We have a variety of areas which encourage the children to walk, jump, run, climb, build and learn to use trikes, bikes and scooters.
Healthy, balanced meals & snacks provided daily
Our extensive and well-resourced Busy Bee’s room promotes the eight curricular areas of the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ and begins your child’s journey from nursery to school. The children have access to a wide range of interesting resources and staff who encourage children to contribute their own ideas to lead their own learning.
Activities offered allow children to play together, to reconcile differences and to begin to develop a sense of fairness. The computer, iPad and smart board gives opportunities to incorporate different technologies to enhance their knowledge. The children have daily access to our large garden area which is easily accessible with fixed climbing frame and ‘large loose parts’ resources for the children to enhance their physical development.
