Discovery is a genuine home from home setting where your child can learn through encouragement, sensitivity to others, mutual respect and most of all fun!
We prides ourselves on creating deep, caring relationships with each of our children. We recognise that as parents you are trusting us with the most important people in your life, and we strive through continuous improvement to provide a rich and deep learning experience.
As with any ‘home’, our nurseries are free flow to ensure that children are not limited in any way. We are constantly changing as we adapt ourselves around the interests of the children. Our ‘home’ includes:
Play Dough Station:
Play dough is not only fun for investigation and exploration, it also builds up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, which help with pencil and scissor control.
Construction can inspire imaginative play
and encourage children’s creativity. In addition, it is great for teaching early maths as children understand the concept of size, position, quantity and so much more.
Outdoor play leads to the development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. We are fortunate to have access to two garden areas which the children can flow between. We access our gardens at least twice a day!
Puzzles are great for developing physical, cognitive and emotional skills as your child attempts to fit pieces together. They will draw on their hand eye coordination and problem solving as they try to match by colour or pattern.
Role play is essential for learning through play. It can help develop communication and language skills, develops social skills, and allows children to explore.
Stories are a powerful resource. They can build empathy and theory of mind in young children. Importantly, stories are the foundation to early reading and writing. Stories assist in building up children’s vocabulary as they are exposed to a wide range of words and we make it our job to bring stories to life!
Gymnastics is a unique sport because it combines physical strength and flexibility with mental tenacity and courage, providing a strong foundation for most physical activities and sports. Gymnastics encourages self-confidence, focus and concentration and takes discipline and perseverance.
Our under 2’s are free to explore the entire nursery (as they would with any home) but we also have a dedicated space for them.
