Badgers Room is a bright and stimulating environment, providing many opportunities for children to develop, make their own decisions and choose from a variety of activities.

Through their play, the children will build upon their confidence, learn about their environment and start to take part in an increasing number of activities outdoors.

The great outdoors

Due to the Nursery’s excellent outdoor facilities, the children are encouraged to investigate and use their imaginations to the fullest extent.  With 18 acres of land to explore at Barley Wood there is always something new and amazing to see and learn. Here is a small selection of the many exciting activities Badgers children have on offer: making dens, digging for mini beasts, nature walks and woodland adventures.

Approach to learning

The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, which is delivered through the medium of play. We will help the children to gain an understanding of their world and what they are able to do. Whilst playing, they can discover how strong they are, how fast they can move, how to coordinate their movements, how to develop their imagination and how loud or quiet they can be!

Big boys and girls

Your child will be in a warm and happy environment, where children are encouraged to be independent, care for one another and feel confident to make informed choices about their nursery day. At the end of each day a member of staff will tell you all about your child’s day and the fun they have had.

Toilet training

During this busy year many children begin to toilet train. There are no rules when toilet training your child, but one of the most important points is to make sure both your child and yourself are ready.  We will be able to provide you with support and guidance and answer any questions you may have.
