The Apples room is the first experience of nursery for many children. A safe place to explore, where lots of hugs and physical affection create strong relationships between nurses and 'their' children. In this room they will start to experience group singing, dancing, finger rhymes and regular story times to encourage concentration. Toys and activities are frequently changed in order to provide constant stimulation and variety, whilst daily art and messy exploration activities extend the children's experiences of texture. Early applications should be made for this room, as many children are registered before their birth!
