do re mi Day Nursery Age Groups
do re mi baby
We have a dedicated 6-place baby room for our youngest group of children (typically ranging from 3-14 months). We ensure that the routines you have in place at home are followed within nursery. Daily activities are stimulating and creative, following your child’s interests, schematic play and their stage of development. Children take part in lots of sensory activities, messy play and treasure basket experiences. We have a lovely outdoor baby garden so the children love getting outside as much as they can! Flexibility is key in enabling us to respond to the needs of your child; which is why there is not a set age at which children ‘move up’.
do re mi diddies
Children are approximately 14-24 months in this room. As children are more mobile, the environment reflects this providing new challenge and stimulation. Anne, our Lead Practitioner for our 0-2’s (and also the Deputy Manager), has over 20 years of experience of working with this age. She oversees both the baby and diddies room and works closely with families and staff to ensure that a calm and purposeful environment enables our children to flourish under their care.
do re mi explorers
Exploration and curiosity are fundamental in this room. We want every day to be a ‘discovery day’. Children usually move up to this room when they are approximately 24months. Through a mix of self-initiated play and adult-led interaction children are able to inquire and engage with activities that promote learning and development in a creative, fun and ‘hands on’ way. Again, practitioners respond to the needs and interests of the individual child to determine next learning steps and subsequent activities.
do re mi adventurers
Our Adventurers room takes our older 2’s and younger 3’s. The room is set up to build on the experiences in the Explorer room, and to prepare the children for moving to pre-school. Self-initiated play, adult-led interactions, music times, story times and lots of creative exploration and discovery form the main part of our day.
do re mi pre-school
In pre-school our main aim is to promote inquisitive, independent learners with amazing imaginations! The environment is set up in a way to provoke the children’s learning, in a unique and creative way. There is also a focus on life skills and ensuring your child is ready for school when they leave us. There is a daily rhythm with group times with their key person where children are offered focused time based around their interests which incorporates ‘hidden curriculum’ such as letters and sounds and mathematics. In this way they are learning unconsciously, sowing seeds in preparation for their time at school and life skills. We love the way that every day is different!
