We have two playrooms which enable us to appropriately arrange
the children according to their intellectual abilities during a variety of activities. They both have a messy area where the
children can play with sand, water, playdough and paint as well as a quiet area where children are able to select quiet activities
The cloakroom has a box for each chid to put their belongings in and work they can take home. It is also
used as a quiet room where the older children can read their books to staff and all the children have the opportunity to work
on a one to one basis.
The bathroom has low, private toilet cubicals where the children feel they can go to the
toilet independently although staff can still observe and help when needs be. We do not expect children to be potty trained
and have facilities to change nappies. We can also work with parents to help each child become toilet trained whether it be
through using a toilet or a potty.
The kitchen has facilities to provide the children with a warm snack and tea,
e.g. toast, and also enables us to prepare cooking activities for the children. We also cook the hot meals provided for the
children at lunch time at an extra cost.
We have a large garden fully fenced around the perimeter. This has a large
grassed area with shade provided from numerous trees. It has a wooden climbing frame and balancing beams as well as a sandpit
and water play (in warmer weather). We also have access to the school playground where there is a large area of tarmac along
with a wooden fort and playhouse.
