About Us

Curriculum Development

We believe that when children are busy and involved, it enhances their development. In each room at the Creche a weekly plan will be decided by the staff. This will be tailored to the childrens’ needs and there will be a well balanced and varied programme each week.

This will include:

  • Indoor and outdoor activities
  • Sensory exploratory activities: play dough, sand, water
  • Expressive activities: painting, finger painting, gluing,  cookery, etc
  • Large motor activities, stories, dressing up
  • Heuristic play, language development and free play

There will be time each day for large and small group activities.
