Beautiful Beginnings Day Nursery
Children in Skylarks continue to emerge in confidence developing those all important independent skills so we can gently begin to prepare them for their journey onward to our Rising 3’s room and beyond.
Skylarks offers a wide range of experiences that encourage exploration, investigation and active learning. The room is well organised and equipped to ensure that all resources are attractive, accessible and arranged for the children to become independent learners encouraging plenty of self-choice to allow children to embrace their individual interests. There is also a key focus on group activities, indoors and outdoors, offering lots of physical and social interaction.
Typically at this stage in their development, children develop a greater awareness of themselves and their peers, making friends and learning new boundaries. As children become aware of others around them, our staff encourage children to learn how share and take turns – a difficult but necessary part of growing up! We’ll support children with their need to express their emotions by ensuring growing toddlers have clear limits in a safe and fun environment with our fully-trained staff on board every step of the way.
Outdoor play, as in all of our rooms, is high on the agenda so you’ll find us outside whatever the weather! We are extremely fortunate to be situated within the grounds of Scarisbrick Hall with access to beautiful woodland and fantastic school facilities to explore so we make sure we take full advantage of this! We have specialist outdoor learning sessions each week which allow children to explore the natural world to their hearts content.
We also have regular visits to other areas of the school including:
Story Telling Tower– a renovated turret that has been purposefully created to encourage listening, imagination and excitement for literature.
Dance Studio – this has a state of the art sound and lighting system to promote movement and music
Gym – the children use this space for gymnastics, games and ball skills
Lower School Library – Children can delight in exploring and respecting stories and books whilst housed in our beautiful restored library room.
Our experienced team work hard to ensure that when your child moves up to our Rising 3’s room, they are ready to embrace new challenges and are confident and competent little learners.
What a truly special and remarkable journey to be part of!
