When children move between rooms in the nursery, we follow the same ethos as when the children first start. We provide settling in sessions supported by their current key worker and new key worker. They work together, sharing information and agree the best way to settle the children. Ensuring parents are included in this process.
We keep transitions between rooms to 3 times a year, January, April, and September. This is to ensure that they move with their friends and stay in the key groups for as long as possible, creating strong relationships along the way.
We have 4 rooms as follows:
6 months – 1 year
1 – 2 years
2 – 3 years
3 year plus
In addition to our playrooms, we also have a sensory room, a large school hall and several outdoor play areas for the different age groups.
We also have a Level 3 Forest School Lead who provides outside activities and learning for all the children.
