Rooms

Whilst your child is in our care we are more than happy for you to call us as often as you like to talk to a member of staff about your child and their day at nursery. During your child’s day at nursery we will record important information to share with you, such as sleep times/nappy changes and information about milk/food intake. This information is added to a daily report which is submitted onto EYLOG.

Explorers

The Explorers is the youngest group at Tops with an age range from three months to 24 months. Our under 2’s units have a flexible routine, allowing activities to be altered when children are ready or showing interest in activities other than those currently on offer. We will mirror your child’s care routines from home, so much of the day is flexible to meet individual needs.

Children have free access to a wide range of activities, offering them learning experiences in all areas of the EYFS. The children can choose what they would like to play with and they are able to select the toys and equipment themselves. Planned activities are created from the children’s interests and areas of their development being supported.

Preschool

Our over 2’s unit has a flexible routine, allowing activities to be altered when children are ready or showing interest in activities other than those currently on offer. The children can choose what they would like to play with and they are able to select the toys and equipment themselves.

Planned activities are created from the children’s interests and areas of their development being supported.  During circle time the children are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities, some of which are from the Rainbow Project, which will support and promote social and emotional aspects of learning.

Self registration will support the children in beginning to recognise the letters of their name.  Each day when your child arrives they will be encouraged to find and place their name on the self registration board. Letters and Sounds is a teaching programme designed to help children understand how the alphabet works for reading and spelling and is delivered through a variety of fun activities.  The activities pave the way for children to make a good start in reading and writing.
