Our beautiful and vibrant outdoor space offers the children an area to engage in a natural environment, exercising their physical skills and interests, whilst allowing a restful outdoor experience in our quiet area, where the children can relax in the fresh air, either reading a booking or doing a puzzle.
The children engage in many indoor and outdoor experiences and activities, such as water and sand play, the children are involved in gardening and looking after their own little vegetable patch and learn to care for their environment and world around them. Our home corner and dramatic play area comes alive as the children engage in many make believe and real life role play scenarios. An endless variety of arts and crafts, music and dance and much more is offered to the children to allow their creativeness to grow and flourish.
Tiny Tots uses an interactive app called Story Park, this provides parents with the opportunity to log on and access information about your child’s day, as well as enabling parents to communicate directly with our group leaders whenever required. This is a great communication tool allowing for all conversations to flow about your child’s learning and development between parent and the educator.
Every room has a Lead Educator. The Lead Educator plans daily and weekly activities, creating learning experiences based on your child’s interests, this is in line with the Belonging, Being and Becoming Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) to enhance and develop your child’s learning.
