Play Group

Our Playgroup children spend most of their time engaged in play-based learning, both within the classroom and outdoor learning environments. Learning through senses is stressed throughout this stage of learning. Activities that encourage listening, touching and feeling; visual discrimination, tasting, and smelling are stressed throughout our playgroup curricular. Water/sand play is also stressed on from the very beginning. Children at this age are also introduced to swimming and basic I.T skills.


Our 3 ½-year-olds are have attained quite a number of basic skills and can work at these independently and it is at this stage of learning that adults are bombarded with lots of questions during their day to day interactions with children within this age-group. Independence is encouraged throughout this stage of learning whereby children are encouraged to use their own abilities in solving day to day problems.


Activities at this level of education are developed to ensure that they are self- directed with a reasonable amount of challenge to enable children to experience success so as to boost their confidence in trying out new skills.

Safety, First Aid and Medical Care

All of our facilities and toys are checked for suitability to the ages of those using them in addition to being regularly checked for potential hazards. We enforce that no child be left unsupervised at any point, and that during outdoor play there is one adult per 5 children. We prefer that parents provide sun protection cream of the type and factor which they prefer, as this will be kept in each child’s personal storage and applied regularly during outdoor play.

We follow all current legislation on fire procedures, and possess and practice the importance of our fire escape plan. All staff are provided with up-to-date first aid training. Copies of all registration forms are kept on file and include emergency contacts and details of your child’s hospital and doctor so that we are fully informed as to what action to take in case of emergency. Should any child have ongoing medical needs such as medicine to given while they are in our care, we ask that a written explanation be provided.
