The Stretch and Grow sessions that Jacqui delivers encourage physical development, whilst teaching the children about the importance of exercise, good nutrition, how their body works, all about their muscles and the benefits of eating healthily.
Playmakers is a session that uses imaginative play to promote physical development. Children will develop their balance, coordination, fine and gross motor skills whilst understanding the importance of teamwork and collaboration.
Characters ‘Skip’ and ‘Dribble’ engage the children to learn through play and develop key skills, and knowledge. A third character is used to help children avoid bad habits encourage them to be inspired by the positive role model characters, (skip and dribble), who live in the imaginary planet known as the planet playmakers

Here at nursery, we offer extra circular sessions called ‘Forest Friday’ at no additional cost to families. Forest Fridays allows the children to express themselves without the constraints of space that they have indoors.
We believe that Children who play outside in all weathers are more likely to be active in their adult lives.
Outdoor learning supports children to develop confidence, self-esteem and independence through hands on experiences within nature.
Forest Friday is a fun, safe way for children to experience supported risk taking on a larger scale then they would indoors.
