Honeypot caters for children between 3-5 years old and we can take up to 15 children each day in this room, with 2 members of staff.
In this room we aim to help the children to learn vital skills ready for when they go to school.
The term before they leave for school / school nursery the pre-school team work alongside the parents to ensure that their children are prepared for the big transition to school.
We welcome teachers from our local schools into the setting to meet the children in a familiar environment alongside their home visits.
The staff also complete child transfer document to ensure that all important information is passed onto each child's next setting to enable their individual needs are catered for.
Honeypot has a busy and exciting atmosphere, where the children can explore their surroundings with interest. The children are encouraged to make decisions and choices about their activities, snacks and experiences.
Some examples of the activities the children enjoy are:
Playing games on the touch screen computer- freely choosing what they would like to play and taking turns with their friends
Exploring the mark making table- the children have a choice of many activities such as drawing, painting, sticking, using stencils and cutting
Building structures, towers, train tracks and models using a range of construction materials
Outdoor play- exploring the environment, playing on the equipment, dancing, sand and water play.
Role play - exploring various occupations and using their imagination with the tea set and looking after the babies
Story corner - Offering the children a chance to read books with their friends or simply relax
