A day in the life

Tiggers Nurseries Tetbury The Maple Room.jpgThe Maple Room mini-nursery is a very large and spacious room catering for up to 28 two-three year olds. This room also has 2 separate quiet rooms for stories and sleep/rest time, nappy changing facilities and toilets with potties for potty training, which is usually started at this stage. Plenty of encouragement and praise is given in order to achieve this successfully. We request that plenty of spare clothes are available when they are "in training". 

The room is run by our Senior Nursery Nurse and has excellent relationships with both children and their parents.

Our main emphasis for children in this age group is learning through play. Children take part in a lot of activities with sand, water, playdough and other malleable materials. There is plenty of messy play and the Mini-nursery room is a very ‘hands on’ room with lots of different play materials and objects to explore, ensuring that all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage are covered. This is closely monitored and observed by our skilful mini-nursery staff. Naturally, our focus is on what the children learn from an activity rather than what they produce to take home.

Our Mini-Nursery children often play in small groups, usually with their key person and make the most of all of their learning and play areas. All activities can also be done in the garden and so we ask you to provide appropriate clothing for the day.

After lunch, which is cooked on site and provided at no additional charge, children who stay all day have a chance to sleep on our sleep mats with their own individual bedding. They can relax in the lovely quiet rooms, which have twinkling stars and a moon to gaze up at, and colour changing wall wash lighting. Children who don’t sleep continue their activities and fun in the Main room until the end of their session.
