Environment

Our environment has been carefully constructed with young children and their unique needs in mind. We aim to develop independent learners who are able to explore their own individual learning styles and are given the time, space and opportunity to marvel at the world around them in awe and wonder. These are indeed very special and inspiring times in a young child’s early childhood and we aim to provide opportunities that capture imagination and inspire a life-long passion to enquire and find out more. The EYFS tells us that the ‘… the experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.’ Little Poppets Nursery believes in the rights of all children to play and it is our intention to use this as a vehicle from which children learn.

At Little Poppets Nursery we encourage the children to move freely between our beautiful indoor and outdoor space. To support this aspiration we ask that you provide the necessary clothing and protection to facilitate your child’s independence and comfort (clearly labelled with your child’s name). We suggest indoor and outdoor shoes, water proof clothes, wellingtons, sun hats and sun cream as appropriate to our lovely British climate. We will aim to carry a small supply of spare items to facilitate this need but your help and support would be greatly appreciated.
