Room Info

Baby Room - 3 months - 2 years

The Babies home is split between two rooms on the ground floor of the main farmhouse building consisting;

Activity Room - This room is equipped with a wide range of resources of both large and small equipment and runs the length of the house with carpet flooring at one end and hard flooring for messy play at the other end.

Sensory Room - This soft carpeted room is predominantly the base for younger babies and special needs children where stimulating fibre optic lights and a colourful bubble tube is housed, together with padded mats and partly mirrored walls and other toys.

Tweenies - 2 - 3 years

Tweenies are located on the first floor of the main farmhouse building and spread through three rooms.

The main large room is where the majority of work & play takes part, including messy play with water, sand and the much loved "gloop". The room is adequately resourced for children from the age of two - three plus, to ensure that all children are adequately stimulated and challenged as they learn on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.

The other two rooms are located off a secure landing and again are resourced and set out to provide a fun and friendly environment, with differing and challenging resources that include dressing up areas, physical role play, creative areas in addition to a nice peaceful sleeping area and an abundance of educational toys.

Pre School - 3 years +

Pre School is located in the outbuilding and consists of a large activity room with an adjoining bathroom fully equipped with mini facilities including wash basins and hand dryers. The main room is divided into various areas with two types of flooring to promote certain skills including a computer area complete with an interactive touch screen for educational learning, an imaginative play area, a home corner with dressing up clothes, a creative area which includes sand, water, painting, model making, play dough & writing/drawing materials, as well as table activities, construction toys, and a book corner.

Outdoor Play Area`s

The children have access to a number of fully enclosed and secure outside play areas

Tweenies & Pre School's main outdoor play area is located at the rear of the building and overlooking a field where the horses run and play, is an adequately equipped area with a large number of wheeled toys, a playhouse, shaded sensory area and messy play area with water and sand.

When the weather permits, this area is opened up to a part grassed and part artificial grassed area where there is a junior climbing frame with slides plus see saw and other toys.

In addition and for the Pre School children, we have a larger climbing frame and swings to a grassed area at the front of the building.

The Babies have their own secure area equipped with mini climbing frames and various wheeled toys, plus mirrored and stimulating walls, all sitting on a soft spongy floor with the horses running and playing in the field the other side of the fence.
