Our indoor play area and gym is a bright and colourful room. Here, the natural light, brightly painted walls and surrounding mirrors create a stimulating experience for the children. Soft play toys and padded flooring create a safe and secure environment in which your child can develop. In the gym, children enjoy Music & Movement sessions with a trained professional twice a week. The children love their time in the indoor play area. They are encouraged to climb, jump, dance and take part in lively music and movement activities.
Our outdoor play area is one of the nursery’s prime features. The children absolutely love going to the outdoor area and the entire playground is shaded, giving the little ones the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities in the summer too. We encourage messy play and we encourage the children to explore and get to know their surroundings. Once a week, we have Splash Day where children jump into their bathing suits and enjoy play time in the water. We also have a large sand area full of toys that children can use to build things and play games. Our outdoor area also has a large climbing frame that contributes to physical development. Other activities in the outdoor area consist of a music play area, a stage, a reading area, bikes and slides. Quite frequently, we hold events in the outdoor area including puppet shows, book days, international day and more.
Our library is packed with lots of age-appropriate books. Our teachers encourage reading time and work on mental development through the use of imagination.
Sensory play is any activity that stimulates a child’s senses. These senses include taste, touch, hearing, smell and sight. Sensory play promotes learning and development and has many learning benefits. Sensory activities encourage free play where the child can explore their senses using almost anything. Our sensory wall, placed at a level reachable by the little ones consists of a range of different materials and textures in a line. The children walk past the wall many times a day and at almost any time of the day, you will catch them running their little hands through one of the many sensory frames.
For the safety of our children, our extensive CCTV coverage runs throughout the premises of the nursery. This includes in classrooms, the outdoor area, the reception area and the front of the nursery. CCTV footage is on display in the director’s room at all times.
At Step by Step, we have very strict health & safety policies that we adhere to at all times and to ensure we offer the highest level of Health & Safety, our nurse is available at the nursery in our clinic at all times. Here, we keep information on each child including allergy and medical information. Regularly, a qualified General Practitioner visits the nursery for general check-ups.
Role-play is essentially learning through play. Here, children get into a character and act out real-life situations and this playful activity is a key component of a child’s learning. Apart from developing a child’s language and communication skills, role-play helps children to work on their social skills and make sense of real-life situations. This room really sparks creativity and imagination!
