Tapestry allows you to see photos, videos and written observations of what your child has been up to. You are also able to share pictures and photos here with us.

Exploring Our Local Environment:

The practitioners enhance the children's learning by taking them out and about in the local community. Each room offers a range of different opportunities so keep your eyes open you may just spot us on one of our adventures.

The under two’s regularly visit the library where the practitioners share their love of books with the children. Sharing stories from an early age promotes language skills. Your never too young to get snuggled down and listen to a range of stories!

The 2-3 year olds and their Practitioners get there walking reigns on and off they go to explore the world outside of the nursery. They get on the local transport and attend workshops at Park rangers where the children learn about the natural world. They come back with a range of experiences to share with their friends. Some days they visit the local shops with a shopping list under their arm to go and find new resources for their room.

No matter what the weather the Preschool children get themselves ready in weather appropriate clothing and explore the local environment. They enjoy going on number and letter hunts in the shops making sure to point them out to each other. They may be buying the ingredients that they need for their latest recipe that they are going to make or just maybe they have popped over to the toy shop as their current interest has meant that they need some new resources!
