At Smallworld Nursery, we are proud to offer a diverse range of activities and experiences for our children. One way in which we do this is by having a range of visiting specialists who come along on a weekly basis. For example, on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, we have our music days with our music teacher Fiona. These sessions are always highly anticipated by the children and offer a fantastic opportunity for them to explore music, rhythm, and movement.
In addition to our regular visiting specialists, we are always keen to involve parents and the wider community in our activities. If any parent has a particular skill or talent that they would like to share with us, we would be delighted to hear from them. Whether it’s focused on nature, art, or sport , we are always looking for ways to enhance our children’s learning experiences.
Furthermore, we also strive to follow the children’s interests and curiosity by arranging visits from people who work in our community. For example, if the children are interested in “people who help us,” we may arrange for a police officer, firefighter, or paramedic to come and speak to the children about their job. These visits provide valuable learning opportunities for the children and allow them to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world around them.
Overall, our aim is to provide a stimulating, engaging, and enriching environment for our children. We believe that by offering a diverse range of activities, experiences, and opportunities, we can help to foster their natural curiosity, creativity, and love of learning.
