Tiny Town Nursery in Warwick is located central to the town centre and caters for 58 children. We have our own private car park and enclosed outdoor area, offering chalking, sensory boards, physical stimulation and an area for the children to dig and plant. All rooms can transfer any activity that is done within the nursery to the playground and we have our own outdoor resource boxes with equipment, especially tailored for outdoor use. This area is also uses CCTV for added security.
The nursery operates on two floors and has decorative art work flowing throughout the entrance way leading to the children’s play rooms.
The Baby Room
The Baby Room can cater for a maximum of nine children with staff on a 1:3 ratio. The babies can enjoy playing in the heuristic area, role play, cosy corner looking at books, mark making and a variety of messy activities from day to day.
The Toddler Room
The Toddler Room caters for 12 children, also using a 1:3 ratio. Construction, role play, small world, sensory and mark making are available in this room, with the sand also being a popular choice everyday. The Toddlers love getting messy with foam too!
Both of these rooms operate from the ground floor, giving ease of access to the outdoor area.
The Tweenie Room
The Tweenie room operates across two large rooms, one being a lino area and one completely carpeted. The carpet area allows for floor activities, such as trains, the cars and garages, construction, a book/quiet area for relaxing, dressing up and role play and sensory experiences. This room is also excellent as it is transferred into a sleeping room for children who still require an afternoon nap, whilst the lino room can have activities for children who do not require a sleep. Also in the lino area is an ICT area, where children can access a computer and laptops, sand and water which is contsnatly available across the day, and various art resources to make their very own masterpieces.
The Pre-School Room
The Pre-School room caters for 18 children aged 3-5 years and offers a structured environment to enable the transition of children leaving to go to school, an easy and pleasurable one. The children benefit from a small world area, ICT table, sensory tent, a construction and numeracy area, a book area which is also used as a group discussion area, sand and water, a mark making table and an extensive role play area that can transform into any area of interest for the children. The staff use phase one of the letters and sounds curriculum, where phonics are introduced to aid them when attending school.
These two rooms operate on the first floor.
Each room promotes children as individuals and by using observations to plan for the children’s interests and stages of development, we recognise that each child is unique and do not stereotype capabilities according to age.
