Ages from 6 weeks to approximately 2 years old
A stimulating, exciting and nurturing environment where the younger babies have a cosy space to lay, sit, crawl or roll around safely before joining the more mobile babies to explore further. Within a free flow area the children may use their new found skills, as they develop their physical coordination, to use the furniture and equipment to help get themselves around, with continuous support from caring staff. This is all done while meeting individual care needs through flexible routines that are appropriate to each child (based upon their routines at home).
A range of activities that are available for the children offer children opportunities to explore using all of their senses. Favourite activities include paint, playdough, water, sharing books and musical instruments and singing songs. The children can relax in our soft areas indoors or explore more about the world outside in Poppies own garden area.
