What makes us magical at Children 1st @ Clowne?
Our amazing, innovative environment created by our own maintenance and development team and the fact Ofsted says we are, “Outstanding In All Areas!”
What do most people say when they visit the Clowne nursery? Wow! The environment has been transformed into a place where children’s imagination can run wild. Right from the youngest baby to the oldest early years’ child, the environment provides the kind of opportunity for children that they can only dream of as you can see from the pictures below.
Our young babies experience the emotional security of their own room with many sensory activities to stimulate their development. The designated outdoor baby space provides opportunity for challenge and for them to be out in the fresh air throughout the day.
The toddler children have a wonderful space of their own, a key feature being their ‘up, up and away’ sensory pod which is a quiet space where the children can experience a cosy, safe ambience. When the children need extra stimulation they can get messy in the art studio or creative in the block area. Further challenge is available outside with the opportunity for the little ones to climb over, crawl under and jump onto a range of equipment.
The areas for the older children have split level mezzanines where they can either imagine in the beach café or hide away for a quiet story in the reading area. The children love nothing more than climbing up here to get a bird’s eye view of their friends playing down below.
When they have exhausted all of these opportunities the children can be found in the ‘jungle room’ – an incredible adventure room full of slopes, tunnels, hidey holes and a ball pool – it’s amazing!
The staff at Clowne often say that words alone cannot do justice to their wonderful environment so they extend an open invitation for you to come along and play.
