Our Rooms

At Sunny Socks we have rooms to cater for children's individual development.

 

Jelly Tots (3 months to 2 years of age)

 

Our Jelly Tot rooms cater for up to 12 children and we have 4 full time members of fully trained staff who are also paediatric first aid trained.

 

To accommodate the varying needs of each child our facilities include a quiet sensory room and a separate play area where the children are encouraged to explore and develop their sense of independence, within a supportive and safe environment.

We also have a dedicated area for the children to sleep in either cots or fold away beds as required to help them follow a regular routine.

 

 

We have purpose built furniture and storage allowing babies and toddlers to freely access toys. All ages can explore the home corner and role play area where they can play at cooking with fruit and vegetables, making a cup of tea or taking a doll for a walk in a buggy.

Additionally, there is a cosy book corner with rugs, cushions & books that are accessible by all to aid communication & develop language skills.

All children have access to sand and water play. Also located in this area is the ’Baby Gym’. This popular piece of equipment encourages children of all abilities to safely navigate steps and a slide.

 

Each day the babies & toddlers are able to access our rural outdoor environment. They are taken into the garden to play or walked or pushed in a buggy to the farm to see the cows and tractors.

Kittens (2 - 3 years of age) & Cats (3 - 4 years of age)

The areas downstairs are used by both the Kittens  and the Cats, sometimes all together and other times split into their age groups. 
 
In the Clever Kitten/Cat rooms we provide a stimulating & inviting environment with resources that are accessible & open ended.
 
The children have free access to an outside play area as well as a large garden. We take frequent walks to the farm situated behind the Nursery, where the children can learn and talk about animals, plants and farm machinery, ensuring lots of fresh air and puddle jumping!
 
Throughout the day each child has the opportunity to independently explore the setting. They are able to select a variety of toys and activities to help develop their social, physical and communication skills.
 

In the playroom is our home corner, a maths and writing station, free access to many activities and games and a computer, allowing the children to enhance and develop many areas of learning.
 
The book corner is a cosy, inviting area where children can feel comfortable and relaxed when selecting from a variety of books and story sacks.
 
Creatively they have the opportunity to sing songs, make music and dance every day. 
 
Our undercover play area also allows children to be imaginative, physical and creative. One day it may be a hairdressers, the next a doctors surgery, the next a dance floor and later a place to practice skills on the climbing frame.
 
 
The craft room enables all children to access a variety of 'messy' activities. They can create elaborate models from junk materials, mould and manipulate play dough, explore their senses using sand and water or paint!
 
In this way, through carefully planned child and adult led activities based around individual needs and interests, we provide a secure and firm foundation for learning and developing in the future.
