Baby & Walker Units
We have a Baby & Walker Unit at each location, providing childcare for children up to the age of three. We recognise that the first three years of life are an extraordinary time that sets the stage for the years to follow. We use the Pre-Birth to Three positive outcomes and aim to provide our babies and toddlers with a safe and secure environment in which to develop. As children under the age of three require very different levels of support during their earliest stages of learning, it is vital for their welfare that the focus is on their care, their routines and their freedom to move around.
Our baby rooms are well resourced, and the bright airy environment creates a wealth of experiences for young inquisitive minds. We provide experiences which encourage building relationships and develop their senses, this can often involve getting quite messy. We provide sensory activities such as sand, water, shaving foam, gloop, painting and many more experiences. We have ‘treasure baskets and boxes’ filled with various textured items; fabrics, bottles, rattles, shakers, etc.
Our Toddler Room provides a slightly more structured day with a great choice of learning opportunities including; arts and crafts, construction activities, table top games and much more. We introduce early numeracy and literacy skills and activities designed to develop your child’s communication skills. Each day children spend time outside in our play areas or local park. We try to get outdoors as often as possible and our toddlers enjoy walks around our local community as well as picnics in the park and visits to local landmarks.
During your child’s time in our Toddler Room, we will aim to provide them with a wide range of experiences and opportunities to develop their confidence and independence, ready for their transition to our 3-5 room.
Our facilities at Arnhall and Bridge of Don incorporate Early learning and childcare for children from 3 – 5 years.
Early years education is fun but in fun there is learning - if the environment is correct.
We have a wide range of activities available, including role-play, water and sand play, creative play, baking, arts and crafts and many more. These experiences allow children to learn through play in an exciting and enjoyable way. Our staff provide stimulating learning challenges which are responsive to children’s interests. The layout of our 3-5 rooms allow children to choose their own learning opportunities which encourages choice and promotes curiosity, inquiry and creativity. Within this area of the nursery we use the Curriculum for Excellence. This provides the best start for our pre-school children so that they can make a seamless transition to school.
