The Rumpus Room
Named after Max’s room in “Where the Wild Things Are”, this room gives children the opportunity experience a variety of different activities including sensory based play, to enhance their experiences of touch, taste, texture and smell, and messy play. There is also a good and constantly updated selection of resources to help develop their fine motor and social skills.
The Sensory Room
The Sensory Room is a little oasis of peace and tranquillity, where children are taken in small groups to listen to stories, read books or play games. The room has recently been re-fitted with top of the range sensory equipment including bubble tubes, projectors and auditory tapes, and provides a haven for the senses. Children of all ages are able to use this room at different times of the day.
The Undercover Area
When we added our extension to create the Bananas room in 2015, we also added a covered area to our garden. This has become a lovely place to play at all times of the year and means that the children can enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air even in poor weather conditions. All of the rooms have the benefit of the Undercover area and they access this area and the garden on a rota so that all children can use it. The resources in the Undercover area are changed every day so that in addition to the continuous provision of sand play and water play, the children will have different role play activities to enjoy each day.
Babies engage in various physical experiences as they explore their environment using a wealth of resources.
