Handsworth Wood branch
Nursery Manager - Vicky Millington
This is an open plan room that can be divided to accommodate babies aged 3 months to 2 years. There is also a sleep area and separate nappy changing area.
Our specially designed baby unit is fully equipped with a wide range of stimulating toys and play materials. They will provide a variety of play experiences as well as encouraging early skills such as learning to crawl, walk and talk and introducing social skills. Our staff will ensure there are plenty of opportunities for quality time and attention, praise and cuddles.
Our Tweenie department caters for children aged 2-3 years and is divided into two rooms, with both rooms accommodating 12 children each. Throughout the day the children in both rooms experience opportunities appropriate to their age and stage of development.
A variety of opportunities await the children in these rooms, including experimenting with play dough, sand play and water play as well as developing their imagination in our role play area.
Our sensory room adjoins our Tweenie room and all children have regular access to this area to explore and develop different senses. We also use this room to support any intervention work we need to do with children throughout the nursery.
This room accommodates up to 26 preschool children (aged 3-4 years) and has been designed to ensure children can move around safely and make choices for themselves. This room is led by our early year’s graduate who ensures we provide play and learning experiences to cover all seven areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional development
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
We also offer a wrap around service with Cherry Orchard School Nursery.
