Sunrise Nursery

Our room is the next step in your child’s progression through the Early Years Foundation Stage.  We encourage our children to play independently, to share, and to enjoy all aspects of play.  

 

We prepare lots of activities and experiences for our children every day. These include tactile play such as water, sand, tea leaves and dry pasta, early mark making such as drawing, painting and sticking, as well as cooking, dressing up and singing. We encourage the children to choose the toys and games they wish to play with by providing a wide range of resources in clear see through boxes all within easy reach of the children.

 

We also encourage the children to learn through heuristic play. This method of play is carried out in a quiet area with only a couple of children at a time. Activities such as posting buttons into boxes or putting pegs on a line help hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills.  During this quieter play we can make very good observations on each child which allows us to see how they are developing. These observations inform our planning and are kept in your child’s profile.  

 

Every day we have singing time, story time and lots of individual time with each child.  The Baby Toddler Room love to see the children smiling and having lots of fun. As a staff team we love to be part of this and enjoy dressing up, making funny faces and showing the children that we are having fun as well. We love to sing loudly, have running races and jump in and out of puddles!

 

We love playing outside, whatever the weather, and we take our planned activities into our large garden whenever we can. We provide ‘Muddy Puddles’ clothes and welly boots to keep the children warm and dry so  we venture out come rain, shine, wind or snow!

 

We have lots of fun toys in the garden such as bikes, trikes, push-alongs as well as a ball pit, a sandpit, a play kitchen and a book corner. We often have tactile play outside and we all get very messy and have lots of fun with shaving foam, rice, cornflour and water. This allows the children to freely express themselves and to develop self confidence as well as turn taking, group play and hand washing! You would be surprise about how much fun you can have with shredded paper!

 

We often take the children out onto The Millennium Green which is right behind the nursery. We visit the wooden crocodile, ‘Tellytubby’ Hill and the dark forest!  We also see the changing seasons in the trees and the pond.

 

We work hard to be a friendly and approachable team and encourage feedback and questions from you at all times.
