0-2 years

Your baby will be welcomed into a safe and nurturing ‘home from home' by a caring team that will establish strong bonds with your family.  We work closely with you to understand your baby’s interests, routine, and emerging personality.

New experiences are introduced as your child develops, such as treasure baskets, controlled climbing, and heuristic play.

Your baby will have daily opportunities to get messy, be physically active, and express their creativity and development.

Outdoors, your baby will experience the stimulation that only a garden can offer, feeling the breeze, listening to birds, & smelling the plants.

2-3 years

At the age of 2, your child will want 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 co-ordinate and developing their imagination.

Your toddler will have opportunities to thrive and develop as well as gain further independence in the welcoming indoor space. The garden area allows for your child to refine their gross motor skills and develop their fine motor skills even further

Throughout their time in the toddler room, your child will have new experiences every day, getting involved in messy activities and being both active and social with our wide variety of role-play opportunities.

3-5 years

Your child will benefit from a mixture of child-initiated and adult-led activities in purpose-built indoor and outdoor spaces to enhance their learning and help them achieve their next steps.

As your child grows, they’ll have daily opportunities to develop confidence, independence, and social skills, spending much of their time outdoors. Outside they’ll climb, run, balance, jump, and splash. In the garden, they’ll problem solve, take risks, share ideas, develop their language, and have imaginative adventures.
