Orchards

Ladybirds & Bumblebees

There is a natural progression on to Orchards as the children become ‘rising three year-olds’. This spacious area, which consists of ‘Ladybirds’ and ‘Bumblebees’ groups have a highly-experienced and friendly team who are able to support children to take calculated risks and become active, independent learners.

A Land of Make-Believe!

Children at this stage of their development especially love making up stories, dressing up and role-play and the world is their oyster! They make dens (inside and out), love singing and are busy expanding their rapidly developing vocabularies through their interaction with others and learning through play.

Health & Wellbeing

Children in Orchards enjoy regular sessions of ‘Stretch ‘n’ Grow’ (an exercise and health awareness programme specifically tailored to this age group), enjoy plenty of time at the woods and farm, mud kitchens, sensory garden and paddock.

Children’s independence increases as they help to prepare snacks, pour their own drinks and learn about the importance of healthy eating, hygiene and self-care. Our practitioners promote and encourage everyday independent skills such as hand washing, putting on shoes and getting dressed to help build confidence and develop important habits for life.

It’s often around this time that many children begin toilet training. Our practitioners work closely with you as a family to ensure your child transitions through this important stage of development in a relaxed manner when the time is right for your child. The facilities in this area are tailored to children's needs.

A Rich Learning Environment

Children in Orchards enjoy a rich learning environment, stimulating imaginations while new skills are learnt. Orchards also provides an early introduction to phonics and numbers and the children spend time enjoying a gentle introduction to more formal learning through fun activities and games with our practitioners and teacher.
