Little Engineers Nursery

1 Year Old Room                     

Our 1-year-old room offers a homely, comfortable and warm environment in which you, as a parent, can be reassured that your child is being left in safe, dedicated and professional hands. We have six places available for 1-year olds per day.  Jemerley, the 1-Year-old Room leader, along with our apprentice, Kinnari, provide lots of cuddles and attention and they work very closely with parents, discussing feed and sleep patterns and development. 

As they progress, the correct play equipment is provided to stimulate all aspects of their individual needs and development. The children take part in a variety of activities such as messy play, role play, music, dance and story time, heuristic play, treasure baskets, sensory areas and plenty of play opportunities, indoor and out. 

We will focus the children’s next steps around the prime areas of learning: Communication and language, Physical development and personal, social and emotional development. A record of your child’s day is kept as well as development records which can be seen on the Famly App and are discussed with parents.
