The indoor play area is bright, airy and spacious. Its great layout of different learning experiences which are designed so children can move freely from one learning area to another. Displays and storage are easily accessible for children encouraging them to make choices and become independent.
The dramatic play area allows children to take on roles and try out new ideas, such as community helpers or acting out family themes. Children use their imaginations as they cooperate with one another and they practice self-care skills as they try on dress-up clothes.
Toys and games allow children to develop important thinking and puzzle solving skills, social skills, and fine motor skills.
Great block areas contain a variety of materials to spark curiosity and exploration. Children use the block area to explore how things work; they build, tear down, fill, dump, stretch, reach, balance and create.
Library Book Corner
This is a quiet space where children can relax, experience technology and enjoy reading, either with their friends, an adult or simple have quiet time by themselves. The art area provides opportunities for children to express themselves and develop fine motor skills. Visual art can include painting, drawing and sculpturing. This is a space for inspiration and creativity.
Indoor Play Area...
We do sometimes get a bit messy! We do provide aprons which the children are asked to put on, but unfortunately sometimes they still get paint on them. We ask you not to bring children in their best clothes just in case these accidents do happen, we also ask parents to pack a change of clothes in their bag in case we need to change them during play.
Snack time is a sociable time at Kikiland! We make snack time fun and encourage children to make healthy choices. The snack bar will be set up from 10am with a choice of different fruits and raw vegetables, crackers and spread, breadsticks etc. for children to self-select with their friends. If your child has any special dietary requirements, please let us know on registration so we can be sure they are accommodated.
Upon registration we will ask if your child has any medical conditions we need to be aware of or requires medication whilst they are at the nursery. We can only administer prescribed medication and there are restrictions on providing emergency medication such as an Epipen without the consent of the child’s GP. Please speak to us if you have any concerns. If your child needs an asthma pump on a regular basis, we must have one that is kept here on site at all times. We do not provide any medication such as Piriton and Calpol.
Taking Photos and Video of your Child at the Nursery
We would very much like the opportunity to communicate and share all that our children do at Kikiland Limited through social media and on our website. Images speak a thousand words so we would like to take photos and occasionally film the children enjoying their activities at the nursery so we can share their experiences with you on our Facebook page and through the website news page. Upon registration we will ask for your permission to take photos and video of your child. If you choose not to authorise the use of photos or video that contain images of your child, then that is absolutely fine and we will ensure your request not to do so is honoured.
We do not provide nappies or wet wipes, so we ask you to ensure that your child has enough supplies to be changed through their stay here. We do however provide sudocrem. If your child requires another form of cream, you must bring this in for us to be able to apply it at nappy changing times. If your child is toilet training, lots of spare clothes need to be packed in case we have accidents. We do not provide Sudocrem cream.
We often take the children out to places such as the park, museum, bus/train stations etc. when registering you will be asked to sign a form to state whether you give permission for your child to go out.
