Our Rooms

Our Rooms at Little Angels Day Nursery

At Little Angels Day Nursery we have specifically designed different rooms so that as a child’s needs develop, so does their environment. The rooms are predominantly designed around the age of your child with each room having a separate Care Team Ratio. This ratio shows the number of children that one adult has responsibility to work with. Taking the example from The Baby Room, this shows that there are is one adult to care for three children (1:3). The older the children get, the higher the Care Team Ratio.
First Steps Room

Baby / First Steps Room

Care Team Ratios 1:3 (0-2 years)
The Baby and First Steps Rooms offer 15 places within the 2 rooms for children aged 0 to 2 years. The emphasis on these rooms is love, warmth and security, our aim is to create a homely environment. The rooms have been designed so that at each stage of your baby’s development, there is a separate and safe area to play and develop.
There is also an area for sleeping and a changing area.
Your baby’s development will be closely monitored and recorded in their learning journey file. The contentment of your baby is of paramount importance to us. We hope to achieve this by being a small, friendly Nursery and by maintaining close communication with yourselves.

Learning Through Play

Early Years Foundation Stage

In the Foundation stage we follow well planned daily activities alongside child initiated play, which supports the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, these are:
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy 
  • Mathematics 
  • Understanding the World 
  • Expressive Art and Design 
  • Personal, Social and Emotional                             Development 
  • Physical Development
These areas of learning are then introduced daily through key group activities and child initiated play. We undertake regular observations to ensure key group activities meet individual children’s needs. We use an online learning journey (Tapestry) to record their development and achievements, parents are invited to contribute to the learning journey file, by way of adding comments, photos etc.
