"Children of all abilities, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make choices about what they want to do. They move around well-planned rooms, selecting resources that they are interested in. Children enjoy a range of activities that staff plan to support their curiosity. They are encouraged to become independent learners and develop confidence. "

The Investigators room is a colourful and exciting room for children from the age of approx. 2 years to approx. 3 years of age. There is a maximum of 20 children per session with a minimum 4:1 child to adult ratio. The room is full of busy energy along with educational, stimulating yet fun activities for the children to investigate and explore whilst satisfying their growing need to learn about the world.

The daily routine includes a mixture of structured and free play, craft and messy play, circle time for stories and singing together with music, movement and dancing . These ensure that the children are exposed to all the areas of learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance. The emphasis though remains with each child’s individual needs within a fun and caring environment, with the emphasis on learning through play. The children have free access to our amazing outdoor adventure playground, giving them the opportunity to exercise their muscles in the fresh air.

The Early Years Foundation Stage framework is used to plan for children’s individual development and next steps. All children have a ‘Learning Journal’ detailing this with lots of lovely photographs showing your child enjoying their time at nursery.
