At Building Blocks we offer a safe, secure and stimulating environment where children are confident. It is just this very type of environment that encourages and supports children’s education. We all know that children learn best through play and with meaningful interactions from staff children’s learning is encouraged and supported.
To provide the continuous development of the children within our setting, here’s a sample of the activities on offer each day along with the benefits of these activities for the children:
When children are playing with water they are discovering early mathematical concepts and with knowledgeable staff and appropriate interactions this becomes and ideal learning environment. Staff will introduce mathematical language and encourage children to explore different concepts such as more than, less than, how many.
BOOKS AND STORY TIME
In nursery we are encouraging a lifelong love of books. Reading books and surrounding children with books encourages communication and language skills. Children are using books to discover facts about the world around them.
ART AND CRAFT
Children are able to express their thought and ideas through art and craft. They are exposed to different materials and the properties of these materials. Children are using their curiosity and imagination to solve design problems.
Using blocks children have the freedom to discover and choose ways to create images and objects. Children will work individually or in groups. Children working in groups will be sharing and working together to a common goal, they will be sharing their ideas and listening to others.
At Building Blocks Childcare Nursery children are gaining valuable life skills through the introduction of our new innovative learning programmes. The programmes are delivered by our passionate and engaging staff and individually tailored for the child. When engrossed in their interest children are learning at a fast pace and that is where these learning programmes benefit from their timing and gain the attention of the child, both challenging them and compelling them to take their learning to a new level.
We all know children learn best through play, at Building Blocks we take that to the next level with our innovative learning programmes. The children are involved from beginning to end and they lead the learning so the diversity is immense. From volcanoes and dinosaurs to doctors and culture, the challenge that faces Building Blocks is keeping up with the demands of the little minds.
We cover a diverse range of interest such as:
The nursery has a large garden, which creates a wonderful learning environment for the children and gives the opportunity for our innovative learning programmes to continue. From planting and growing vegetables to make snack, learning about the changing seasons and giving the children a place to develop their physical skills. The nursery also take advantage of the local woodland area to engage the pre-school children in Forest Kindergarten. The children taking part in this innovative concept show greater ability to focus on task, develop better listening skills along with appreciation and respect for their surroundings.
Starting school is an important milestone for every child and their parents. At Building Blocks Nursery we believe that when children leave our nursery to embark on the next chapter in their lives we must do all we can to support and celebrate this transition.
At Building Blocks Childcare nursery we liaise with the local schools prior to children joining them and will invite the teachers to visit the children at the nursery. During the transition period there will be activities in our pre-school area that will assist in the children’s transitions to school.
We have visits from Zoo lab, police, fire service, dental hygienist to name but a few. During our very successful ‘World at Work’ week we ask parents to come along and share with the children what their job entails.
Examples of some of the trips outwith the nursery are: Rosyth Community Garden, beach kindergarten, Pantomime
