Environment

The Star room is a large hall designed to accommodate the children aged from 3 – 5 years old. The areas of continuous provision are set out during the day, and the children move around the room as they wish. This along with focused activities, spontaneous activities, adult and child led activities, we are confident the children’s learning and development is being promoted in all areas.

We are a registered provider of the Early Years Entitlement, offering 15 hours free childcare per week beginning at the start of the term following a child’s third birthday.

 

ASHLEIGH NURSERY SCHOOL

Poppy room

We have a large purpose built unit to care for children from 6 months old.

It is a warm, homely, cheerful and safe environment for your child/children to play and develop. A wide range of stimulating toys and natural heuristic resources are available, many colourful displays of children’s activities and a large grassed outdoor area with many sit and ride toys. There are appropriate quiet areas, both comfortable and inviting with opportunities to ‘snuggle-in’.The unit is self-contained with nappy changing facilities and nursery provides all nappies and wipes.

We recognise the importance of the continuity of staff working with the younger children and operate a rotation system for staff between the Poppy room and Sunshine room.

 

Sunshine room

This large room enables us to provide a choice of different activities for your child/children. We provide a wide range of toys and equipment including materials for art, crafts, music, and manipulative and constructive activities for exploring the world and developing physical skills.

The children listen to stories in small groups incorporating speaking and listening activities to encourage their communication and language skills.
