Out adventuring every morning
Our home nursery children are not hemmed into one nursery space, they use their entire neighbourhood as their playground. Each morning our adventurers put on their coats, wellies or sun hats and head out.
Our Early Educators use every nook and cranny of their local area as their classroom. Just one park might have four or five learning spaces - tree clambering one day, construction in the sandpit the next and the flower garden bug hunting the day after that.
Back to base for refuelling
Our adventurers return to base in time for a hearty family meal waiting for them in the slow cooker.
Lunch is followed by a well-earned snooze in a quiet, dark space for as long as their individual routine requires.
The older ones will do puzzles or read as they have their own quiet time to rest and restore ready for the afternoon.
Embedding learning with play
Our Early Educators extend that morning's learning out and about with play based activities at home for the afternoon.
This might be a craft activity helping the fine motor skills, imaginative role play or a sensory explosion with a dollop of mess included just for fun.
Children get lots of opportunity to be guided as well as directing their own play which is often when they learn best.
Stories to set sail
Every day in one of our home nurseries ends in the same familiar way - with lots and lots of reading.
Children snuggle up for stories, poems and the odd non-fiction book that deepen all the learning that day.
Children get the opportunity to discuss everything they've learned and head for home fizzing with new vocabulary and swashbuckling tales to tell mum and dad.
