Big Bears are children starting school the following September

Little Bears are children starting school the following years

Our session structure

We have adapted a new structure over the last year this is;

In the moment planning

In the moment planning is an approach where early years settings plan a topic spontaneously based on what a child is interested in. The system is all about completing the planning cycle in the actual moment instead of planning in advance. All activities are met with the EYFS standards.

Session format

start with 2 rooms our main class room and the large play room full of equipment, toys and facilities accessible to all children.(weather permitted the top terrace and sand pit will be open too)

🥛🍏🍊🍓🍌🍞 Mid session snack/drink bar opens
