Ocean Room is set up in a way that enables children to explore and develop their independence. Our plentiful resources cover the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stages, ensuring a rich, fun-filled learning environment.
We encourage the children to direct much of their own learning to enable them to become independent achievers.
Children have opportunities to play as well as to experience a wide variety of adult-led and child-initiated activities, play is freely chosen by the child this is usually highly creative and imaginative. To encourage children to explore and show an interest in discovering new things we offer toys that are stored at child height we also provide stimulating resources in our outdoor space which children are allowed to access at any time as they are able to free-flow to the outside area.
Settling into Ocean Room
Whether your child is moving up from our Sky Unit or is new to the nursery, we take great care in supporting your child with this transition. This will be done through short visits to the room to spend time getting used to the new environment and getting to know the grownups, firstly with their parents or previous key person and then on their own.
