Sunflower Room

Stage: for children over 2 years

Staff to child ratio 1:4

Our staff support your child in their development and exploration of the world around them.

The Sunflower Room offers a fun and safe environment for children to explore. There are areas within the room which promote all aspects of learning, from active areas to quiet areas where your child can rest and reflect upon their experiences.

There are a wide range of activities available for the children to take part in, some of which are predictable, and others which will encourage children to experiment, investigate and explore the world around them. Our staff plan for individual children by using their personal interests and experiences. Our staff observe children in group and solitary situations, and use their knowledge of child development to scaffold the children’s learning and extend their knowledge and skills through sustained shared thinking, providing relevant resources and ensuring their safety.

The room has direct access to our outdoor space which allows free flow to occur. The children interact with the children from the Buttercup Room and this provides the opportunity for the Sunflower children to learn about caring for the younger children and encourage their development as the older children act as role models. It also means that siblings can have contact during the day.

The children are encouraged to develop a number of life skills, such as feeding themselves, starting to use the potty/toilet, expressing their feelings in an acceptable manner and respecting the views and feelings of others.
