The Acorns Room (2-3 year olds)

Your toddler needs lots of opportunities to be physically active and to build on their growing confidence and independence. They will learn about their environment through play, discovering how fast they can move, how to coordinate, and develop their imagination.

We offer a stimulating indoor space coupled with a spacious garden area where your child will benefit from a mixture of child initiated and adult led activities that enhance their learning and help them achieve their individual intents.

Within this room we support parents with toilet training children teaching them the importance of self-care, including oral health.

Oaks Preschool Room (3-4 year olds)

This room includes play-based learning, with activities to suit your child’s development.

Here your children will learn independence and we will support the transition into school in their final term with us.

Oaks Room creates a stimulating environment to encourage your child to become confident, independent children who love their learning.

Outdoor Area

Outdoor play is a valuable part of aiding a child’s development and has a positive impact on children’s development. We encourage the children to access our fantastic outdoor play area.

There are plenty of opportunities for exploration. Children are provided with regular exercise and have many opportunities to be active.

We go out in all weathers, so whatever the weather, your child will be able to play outside in the fresh air.
