 Our Early Years Teacher over looks all the learning and Development of the children,this is done by observing and careful planning for each individual child using the tools of the online Diary that parents can veiw and comment on .

Our Preschool room is our largest, this gives children the space they need to be able to construct, create and explore. The Preschool 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 Preschool room to enable preparation for school.

Our garden

Our aim

  • For children to explore our natural environment
  • Have a safe and secure outside area to be used daily
  • Learn about living things and the environment 
  • To encourage the children to care for our pets
  • To learn to take controlled risks
  • To enjoy making mud pies and mixing materials

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.
