Activities and Facilities

At Wendy's House, we have lots of fun every day. I aim to provide all the children in my care with hours full of laughter and learning in a warm, homely atmosphere. Each day has a structure to provide consistency for the children but within this structure activities are as varied as possible.

Planned activities include painting, sticking, drawing, singing, cooking, musical instruments, story time, and outdoor play, amongst many others.

Story-time, where the children listen, act out and contribute to a story, is an important feature of the day's activities. I have a large selection of books appropriate for all pre-school levels and the children are encouraged to respect and enjoy books and the pleasures they can bring.

We regularly take the opportunity to get out and about. We visit Parks for nature walks and the playground. Our house backs onto woodland where the children have hours of fun exploring.

In addition, there are weekly outings and trips to the library and shops etc, where the children experience real, hands-on learning situations.

We have a fully insured 6 seater vehicle with carseats.

Children have access to the whole of the downstairs with a dedicated playroom. There are toilet facilities on the ground floor. The children have regular access to a fantastic garden which provides a rich environment for learning, playing and growing! The children love playing in the playhouse which has a further selection of toys and role play equipment.

The playroom is fully-equipped with a children's table and a wide range of my own toys and toys from the toy library.
There is a variety of materials for use in explorative play in which the children are given the opportunity to feel and discover the different properties of objects and to learn about shape, colour, size, texture, smell and sound (following the EYFS).

Where required I provide healthy, home-cooked meals for the children although if parents prefer they can send meals with their child.

Please contact me if you wish to discuss your childs dietry needs. Special dietary requirements and allergies can also be catered for. Baby milk should always be supplied by parents.
