What we've been up to...

Oral hygeine

Our nurseries are going to be focusing on oral hygiene and involving the children in learning opportunities around this subject in the coming weeks. 

During Early Years’ Foundation Stage, a child’s first experiences with oral health can impact on the rest of their life.

That’s why it’s so important to teach them about their mouth and introduce them to good habits as soon as possible.

Forest school

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of introducing Forest School training to all our nurseries!

Learning experiences outside the classroom are often the most memorable, they help children to make sense of the world around them, and the person within.

By providing the children with “Walk and Wander” also known as “Forest School” they will enjoy an inspirational environment that provides all learners with opportunities to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a natural environment.

This way of learning is a specialised approach that compliments the wider context of outdoor education. Walk and Wander aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent creative learners.

The process helps and facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it also helps the children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Our approach to risk means that the children constantly expand on their abilities on problem solving, building self-belief and resilience.
