Our Big Toes room caters for children from the age of three preparing them for BIG school.
There are a variety of activities available to aid your child’s development, from sensory play to mathematical games and cooking to a variety of craft.
The room is set out for free play, allowing the children to decide what to play with. Children’s choice plays a major part of the routine of the room with decisions discussed with the children and the children even composing their own set of rules for the room.
Each child has their own keyperson who helps your child along with their development, with one-to-one work, small groups and the whole class working towards a target. We have open mornings where the parents are invited to come along to discuss their child and what they have been up to with their keyperson as well as to discuss any concerns they may have. We believe that as parents you are your child’s main educator and therefore we feel it is important to work together to ensure the best for your child.
We use our fantastic areas as often as possible: running down the fields, climbing on the tyres, skipping through the pencils in the playground or sliding down the slide in the garden.
We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere in the Big Toes room with both children and staff often heard laughing and playing together.
Our daily routine includes carpet time, where the children are encouraged to sit nicely whilst listening to a story and then participate in a group discussion working on our monthly topic.
