Notes

We have an enclosed garden with a swing and slide.

I have a lot of outdoor resources to allow sand/water play with a choice of ride ons.

Indoors i try to keep things open for children to enjoy learning through play and structured activities. I follow the EYFS and like to concentrate on certain topics at different times of the year.

I have a sleep room to allow nap times if needed with all their own bedding.

We go on regular Outings to woodlands, parks and river walks. I also organise trips to local attractions.
