In order to provide a home from home environment and routine I incorporate all the things your child would ordinarily encounter such as free play, walks, toddler groups, visits to the local area and trips.


Alongside this I aim to provide a range of learning opportunities and experiences that support each child’s development in all areas of learning in a fun play-based approach using both the indoor and outdoor environment.


At Busy Kids I have a large indoor playroom and garden that is organised to allow children to explore and learn securely and safely indoors and outdoors. There are areas where the children can be active, be quiet and rest.



The playroom is equipped with a range of fun, stimulating toys, games, role play,

resources and activities that the children are able to self-select from.





Facilities


I have a garden with a range of outdoor toys and learning areas.


This gives the children opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than when indoors. We go outside in all weathers and I encourage the children to play, explore and get muddy!


The downstairs bathroom is child friendly with a low sink, steps for the toilet, children’s toilet seat, potty and changing table.





Younger children have their own downstairs quiet room for naps.


Each child has their own dedicated cot which becomes their own space so that they can have a quiet, peaceful sleep at Busy Kids.


Parking is available on the driveway and layby outside the house for you to use when dropping off and collecting your child.
