Nursery FAQs
How do you keep children stimulated?
Our activities are planned with our core values in mind, Inspire Creativity and Think Visually. We have a range of fun, inviting activities to engage children throughout the day. We observe how the children interact with their surroundings and plan activities linked to their interests using our very own Maggie & Rose inspiration guides.
Do you have an outdoor space for my children to play?
We have outdoor space at both Chiswick and Kensington. At Chiswick, we have a great big rooftop full of lots of outdoor play opportunities, gross motor play area, bikes, construction zone, water & messy play area our staple features. We also have a downstairs area with a beautiful tree-house and a big green Bus, yes we said Bus! The children love story and singing time on our bus.
Our Kensington Nursery has a fantastic garden, stocked full of toys and activities. The garden is connected directly to the nursery which means we can offer a free-flow experience for children.
Alongside this, we love bringing our indoor learning experiences outside. We have a beautiful green for our weekly football/rugby class, a nature reserve for forest school, and we also love venturing out in our beautiful local community one of our favourite things to do is buy flowers from the market and head to the library for story time.
