The West Finchley Pre School - Explorers Room

How we support children in our Explorers Room (non- mobile babies)

Our children’s start to nursery life is of paramount importance and often sets the tone for their future nursery experiences. We work closely with our families to plan five settling in sessions, including a home visit before children start with us, which will support your child’s seamless transition into nursery life. We start to build relationships with our families from the first time they meet us, building trust so that they will feel comfortable to settle their children into our nursery room and leave their children in our care. We want our families to be able to head off to work or their daily activities, confident in the knowledge that their child is safe and well cared for in our nursery.

Our Explorers room is specially designed to meet the needs of children from three months old until they are secure walkers. Wherever possible we use natural materials with an emphasis on wooden equipment.

Our engaging curriculum for under-twos has its foundation in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and has a strong focus on exploring and discovering. We plan interesting sensory experiences and activities for each child, providing opportunities to explore and learn about the world around them, based on their stage of development. They will learn at their own pace and we always encourage their current interests. We always aim to develop our babies self-confidence, independence and curiosity in the world around them.

They spend time every day in our dedicated sensory room developing their sensory awareness. Our explorers also use a dedicated under-twos outdoor play area, where they go for walks in the local area.

Babies sleep in a separate monitored cot room so they can enjoy deep and undisturbed sleep.

Our babies room staff are carefully selected specifically for their caring, nurturing and gentle qualities, as well as their knowledge and experience of working with young children.

Children’s days are based around meeting their own needs and following the daily routine that they are used to at home so that the transition from home to nursery is seamless.

Spending time in our Explorers room will give your child an excellent start to nursery life that will be built on as they move up to our toddler’s room.
