We are fortunate to have a large Hall with an additional room behind our stage. The main Hall is where most of our toys and activities can be found, the additional room is used for singing and music sessions, small group story-time and for any one to one work or specialist activities which require a quieter environment.
We have a wonderful outside space, a large grassed area with an enclosed nature garden as well as a tarmaced playground which is now partly coverd by our fantastic new canopy – The canopy has arrived and it’s brill!. We always have free-flow play so that children can access a range of activities outside at all times, regardless of the weather.
Our storage is limited, however we have a wide range of large apparatus and outdoor toys such as cars, bikes and scooters, buggies, climbing frames, tunnels, sand and water play equipment included. We also have a selection of recently sourced ICT devices (tablets, remote control cars and walkie talkies, for example). Some of our favorite resources include our home corner kitchen (with some food items labelled in other languages not just English), dressing up clothes, castle, railway track and a large selection of construction toys. Creative resources are available outdoors and indoors for the children to independently select. We also have a very well stocked and inviting book corner which has recently been developed to include a range of publications in other languages as well as other resources linked to literacy (apart from the books themselves of course) such as baskets containing sand timers, heuristic items (such as shells and pinecones), binoculars and soft toys/ puppets.
