Learning/Activity Areas – Indoors

In addition to our five children’s play rooms, all children also have access to: -

Sensory Room: In addition to having extensive sensory equipment that is used in all areas of our nursery, we also have a separate sensory room that develops children’s all round senses through a vast amount of equipment, such as a bubble tube and various lights. We also use this room for specific activities based around all areas of learning within the EYFS, such as Letters and Sounds activities and story-telling.

Soft Play Room: We also have a separate indoor soft play room, which all of our children access. This offers the children the opportunity to climb, crawl, walk, build, jump, throw, slide, roll, etc., whilst at the same time, developing their language and social skills.
