These precious ducklings bring a sense of knowing which lends to a graceful self-confidence of trying out new things as well as having fun and splendid time exploring. The ducklings look curiously into the eyes of their care givers to feel that emotional connection and then squeal with delight at every gesture and movement that is done to extend their development and learning.
The ducklings have a beautiful spacious room with a separate sleeping room and direct access to their own garden.
As the ducklings love to explore and and experiment through a variety of sensory and play experiences, a variety of natural objects, materials and music to stimulate, calm and engage, are provided.
The setting ensure that the home routine is followed as much as possible and that includes, sleep patterns, weaning, dietary needs, nappy routines etc.

At this stage the children are curious, magnificent and reverberating with the ambience of positivity where nothing is impossible and everything is beautiful as they learn and discover the world around them.
Even though the lambs are small and delicate, they are never without ideas and inspirations that reflects hope and determination to climb yet another stair or attempt to lift an item that is twice your weight.
The Lamb’s room is welcoming, cosy and inviting with direct access to the garden.
Lambs ‘play with a purpose’. This includes imitation play, creative play and slightly more physical play than with younger children.
The lambs are encouraged to use their imagination, and build/make anything they desire, using different media and loose parts.

The barn owls have great power of listening and it is these excellent hearing skills that will enable the children to learn new skills in readiness for school.
By encouraging the children to listen deeply and intently, the barn owl’s are able to be creative as they tap into their abilities to find what they need where others may see nothing.
The barn owls room is laid out in a way to enable the children to create a “neural map” of auditory space. Research has shown that this stage is the most productive times in a child’s life as they open their senses beyond their surroundings as they explore the unknown.
The Barn Owls room has an inviting and friendly atmosphere which is filled with fun and adventure and has direct access to the garden. We recognise that children learn in different ways and provide a wide selection of activities to meet their individual needs.
