We at Teddy Bears Day Nursery offer our children an independent choice to play with a wide variety of equipment and resources.
We are very proud of our large open plan layout which offers two home corners, dressing up clothes, a large story corner, small world, animal corner, train tracks, construction play, alongside ICT equipment for the children to utilise to enhance their learning experiences with the assistance of technology.
In addition, we offer a wide selection of art and crafts facilities and further support our children's learning and development by the provision of a music and singing teacher as well as a dance teacher which all form part of the service your child will receive at Teddy Bears Day Nursery at no extra charge to yourself.
We believe in encouraging our children to play and carry out activities as part of a group as well as individually.
We love to introduce topics which are directed by the children's interests and base some of our craft activities, stories and trips around these topics.
We endeavour to provide a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment which supports children's learning with a variety of motivating resources.
We also offer French and German lessons at parental request.
