Our nursery is quite small and intimate, and we try to have occasions where children of different ages get together for a play which is especially nice for siblings. Most of the time though your child will be in a room specifically designed for their stage of development. This allows us to set each room up and provide equipment that is ideal for your child's needs as they grow. For example; our baby room (called Poppets) has a safe and comfortable area where your baby can learn to roll and crawl and explore with equipment designed for their limited mobility. We provide soft cuddly toys, treasure baskets to explore and toys for chewing and as they find their feet we have areas perfect for cruising around the furniture and lots of wheeled toys to support their wobbly little legs as they learn to walk. In the preschool your child is developing good gross and fine motor skills (gross motor skills are the ability to do things like climb and jump, fine motor skills are the ability to form letters with a pencil or use scissors to cut out shapes for example). Your 3-year-old may want to do construction with big pieces of wood or drawing with coloured pencils. As children get older we offer more challenging toys and facilities to meet their changing needs and ensure there is plenty of scope for new challenges.
