Nursery (0-2 years)
In our infants environment, we are passionate about providing a safe, secure and nurturing place for children, at all times. It’s important that children feel comfortable and supported as they begin to explore, find their feet and discover the world around them. We respect that parents are the first teachers, so we work closely with you to ensure your child gets the best out of their day.
We encourage 3 settling visits, approximately 2 weeks before your child’s start date to ensure a smooth and settled transition for both you and your child. We are always happy to work with you on an approach that will work best for you and your child, with your child’s well-being being the most important part to this new journey.
With a converted Villa look, our nursery environment really does feel like a ‘home away from home’ for children, you will know what we mean by this once you enter our beautiful open space. The cosy and inviting environment is made up of many loose parts and ‘real’ items, we believe that with these items infants are able to gain an understanding of the world they live in, it encourages open-ended learning, and involves sensory development.
Meals are age appropriate to provide those first tastes and textures. Giving bottles are special care times, where we take this time to nurture, sing, hold and support the infants to create a feeling of warmth, connection and aroha.
As well as daily face-to-face catch ups about your child’s day at drop off and pick up time, we use Storypark to share photos, videos and audio of your child’s development so you never miss out on those special moments. Storypark also offer a handy mobile app so can have updates right to your smartphone.
