These rooms have been designed to make the transition from the baby nursery to the preschool a smooth and natural process.
Toddlers, like babies, learn from the people around them and how they are attended to, the environment that they are in and the opportunities it provides. AT Seeds To Stars, the key worker continues to be a crucial part of each child’s learning environment. By providing a warm, loving relationship they are a secure base from which the child explores with confidence. They continue to ensure that they gather information from you on your child’s needs, likes and dislikes, developmental stage and interests. We make sure that there is regular dialogue about each child’s changing needs between the key worker and the family. As well as daily feedback we provide termly review meetings with your key worker and invite you to contribute to your child’s developmental record each term.
Our large, bright and colourful rooms have been designed for children aged 2 to 3 years old, allowing them to move between different areas, encouraging them to become more independent. The experienced and qualified nursery nurses encourage, show and support the children as they become independent and develop new skills. We follow the OFSTED guidelines with a 1:4 ratio for 2 to 3 years.The children also have access to our nursery garden. All the equipment and materials are at the children’s level and they are encouraged and supported by the nursery nurses to play, discover and explore during free flow play activities. During the daily routine all the children will be given opportunities to play and discover their interests with elements of challenging play which are child and adult-led activities, they are able to do this with the various activities set out and equipment to use. The children are encouraged to be polite and good mannered during play, meal times and outings.
