We have recently adopted a free flow system at St Jude’s Church Nursery which enables the children to access the areas of learning and development that interest them most. This approach allows them the time to complete activities and to move across all areas on offer in their own time and at their own pace. This system allows them to make their own independent choices in a safe and nurturing environment, where they learn and grow in confidence in readiness for school life.
The Nursery is divided into coloured rooms providing different activities as follows:
The Blue Room
The Blue Room is a large room for the Sunbeams and Rainbows to use for physical play, construction and also has a home corner for imaginative play.
The Red Room
The Sunbeams can access this room for table top activities, maths and literacy games and role play.
The Yellow Room
This room is the messy room for Sunbeam and Rainbow children offering water, sand, play-dough and other great craft and art activities.
The Orange Room
The Orange Room offers the younger children the opportunity for role play in our home corner, a book corner and writing area along with a free choice of construction and small world toys and activities.
The Green Room
Green Room is a messy-play room for the younger children including painting, sand and water and craft activities.
The Garden offers all the children the opportunity for physical activities such as climbing, bike riding, mini sports, gardening and playing games.
