Our building consists of three main rooms; the pre-school room, the toddler room, and the office. We also have a substantial outside space.
Our Pre-school room is our largest, this gives children the space they need to be able to construct, create and explore, the Pre-school room is an environment where children are able to be independent learners using tools and equipment whilst being support, guided and empowered by experienced practitioners. The term after a child’s third birthday they are moved up to the Pre-school room to enable preparation for school. We provide weekly Language groups where children can enjoy fun activities whilst being supported by a qualified staff member promoting speech language and literacy.
Our toddler room is open planned and although the space is large it has been created to offer a cosy and safe environment for those younger children to explore and have their development extended at every possibility. Children in the toddler room are aged 18 months till they are ready to move up to the Pre-school room.
In our toddler room the children enjoy free flow play which enables the children to choose to play with what interest them, the child’s key person will add learning resources to this the activity to enable the child to learn from the play.
We also enjoy adult lead activities to like singing movement to music and action songs. our toddler room has a holistic view on learning through play which enable us to enjoy a variety of activities.
Our garden has been created with nature in mind, the garden is an environment where children can feel safe whilst exploring, taking risks and learning. Our garden hosts a large muddy kitchen, a build in sandpit, a cosy den with a transparent roof perfect for rainy weather, a writing and craft area, a water area and a digging area. Children use the free space in the garden to create obstacle courses, build blocks to balance and take risks on or have picnics.
At Tiny Toes we enjoy going into our garden daily when its cold or wet we put on our waterproofs and enjoy the puddles and taking our umbrellas out.
We love to do planting and watch our plants grow as we grow alongside.
We have two guinea pigs Nibbles and Fudge, they also like the garden and playing in their own part of the garden.
Our third room is the office where you can find a manager or deputy on site at all times, the office door is always open to parents and carers. This is a confidential area where parents can feel welcomed and comfortable to discuss any concerns they may have. Parents can also request to book an appointment with their child’s key person at a convenient time.
