Our Bilbies classroom 0-2 years

In our Nursery room at Kingswood Innovative Early Learning, we aim to provide all of our babies with a safe, loving and comfortable environment which encourages fun, learning and development.

We understand that babies need to build secure attachments for their social and emotional wellbeing and development, our nursery room is a responsive environment with low numbers which allows us to provide high quality and consistent care for the youngest members of our service.  We follow the routine you have in place for your child at home which builds consistency between the home and service environments.

Within our nursery room we embrace different aspects of play development for babies and toddlers, including:

  • Heuristic play- playing freely in controlled environment
  • Onlooker play- watching and learning from other children
  • Parallel play - alongside and near other children
  • Associative play - beginning to interact with other children
  • Cooperative play - playing together towards common goal

We have put careful thought and consideration into the resources we choose for our children and encourage children to develop naturally and at their own pace. Our team of Educators in the nursery room develop a special awareness of each child’s physical, cognitive and emotional development and learning, that is supported through role modelling and routines.

All of our babies and toddlers have an opportunity to take part in many exciting and varied experiences throughout the day, with a balance of selected and pre-planned activities. There are shared meal times and mat times each day, where children enjoy music and movement, stories and other fun group activities.
