Sensory Room

Our sensory room is used by all children in the nursery.  It is filled with interesting objects which are stimulating and encourage natural exploration.  Children have opportunities to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Our children benefit greatly from sensory play, providing a haven of relaxation. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.  Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child. This type of play aids in developing and enhancing memory and provides an opportunity for every child to succeed.


 



Our Garden

Each of our playrooms have an easy accessible garden area that has been developed to enhance the children’s learning outdoors

The areas encourage children to cooperate with their friends, share and use their imagination.  With the children we have built Bug Houses, Mud kitchens, grown vegetables and planted flowers as well as having opportunities to participate in vigorous fun play using bikes, climbing, sliding, running and exploring. 


 



Physical Area

As part of a health promoting nursery we are aware of the importance of meeting children’s health and wellbeing needs.  The children have many opportunities for active play throughout the day in nursery both indoors and outdoors.  Our physical area supports children’s development by giving them a safe, challenging and fun area to play, practice and take a risk in trying out new skills.  We encourage the children to fully participate in this play. 

We have access to the school Gym Hall and use it for physical activities for our children aged 3 – 5 years.  We follow the programmes of activity as highlighted in South Lanarkshire Councils ‘Physical Connections’ document.  This gives advice and ideas for activities that support the development of children’s gross motor skills, listening skills and cooperation with others.
