Tik-Tok Nursery in Pelaw
Ages from 2 to 5 years old
TOK-TOK Pelaw is a 26 place nursery which provides a safe, caring and stimulating environment for children aged 2 to 5 years old. We are at the heart of the community and have close links with the local school and community centre. Learning through play is a key element for children’s development and we provide a wide range of continuous provisions for the children to explore. Free flow play makes up a lot of the daily routine and allows the children time to explore and investigate what is around them. The children use visual routines and choosing boards throughout the day which allow them to make their own choices within the setting, thereby promoting their independence.
We encourage and support the children and promote health and self care independently for example, toilet training, dressing and undressing, as well as eating independently at mealtimes. However, help is never far away and a helping hand is always there to offer support when it is needed.
We include welcome time and reflection time within our routine allowing the children to share their experiences with practitioners and their peers. We believe that key worker time with the children is important and this allows the practitioner to plan and support the children’s progress and development.
Stories, rhymes and songs are used frequently within the nursery and support the children’s holistic development. As well as this messy play is a big part of our daily experiences and the children enjoy this both inside the nursery and outside in the garden. The children enjoy hands-on learning about the world around them within the community garden, which includes flowerbeds and vegetable plots where the children plant and care for a range of different crops.
