Duckling Room 0 - 2

Our playroom is fully equipped and furnished to meet ever developing needs together with a designated sleep area. The Ducklings have their own outside play area which includes a covered veranda for wet days. A morning snack, a freshly prepared hot lunch and a substantial tea is provided during the nursery day. Drinks are offered throughout the day along with fruit and/or snacks.

We have a lot of equipment, materials and toys to enable  the children to get a different type of experience throughout the day, including mark making, role play and free play. Various topics, world celebrations and activities add to the babies' daily routine. 

Our aim is to meet each individual child’s needs and interests throughout the day. The children set their own routine when they first start at nursery, they are fed, changed and have a sleep according to the routine that is set down by their parents. As the children become more familiar with nursery life the routine evolves according to their requirements.

In the summer the Ducklings have a Teddy Bear's Picnic and Afternoon Tea with their parents in the nursery garden.

Our baby unit holds a maximum of 9 children and the ratio is 1 adult to 3 children. In our Ducklings room we use the guidance and follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
