Helping Us Grow
Welcome to Seedlings
Our Seedlings Room is where we look after children from 3 months to 3 years.
This room is run by Katie, Bradley, Ellie and Sienna, who work together to create a caring and exciting environment in which the children can thrive. Our children will move into the Sunflower room the term after they turn 3.
Whilst children are in Seedlings, we like to follow the children’s interests, while introducing topics to our planning in order to enrich their experiences.
Young children have a natural desire to learn, explore and question. We offer core provisions and an environment that enables this activity in order to capture the moment of engagement for each child. Careful observation by us is key to utilising the in the moment planning approach – opportunities to seize the moment when a child shows a level of interest and curiosity that can be drawn out and then enhanced and built upon need to be recognised – these are normally called ‘teachable moments’. Written ‘planning’ is then done retrospectively in the form of observations, records of the interactions and notes on outcomes.
