We ensure our children develop in line with the EYFS regulations and development stages.
This is why we have put together an exciting program of extra-curricular activities to nourish and stimulate their minds. You can learn more about our classes and activities below, all of which are included within our standard rates.
We have yoga classes which are a wonderful way to increase children’s co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Using yoga, children can learn to relax and concentrate in a fun and creative environment.
Early Years Sign Language Class
We hold a weekly sign language class in collaboration with Ettie Betty Baby Signs. The children learn British Sign Language through lots of fun songs, stories and sensory fun. We believe sign language can help to bridge the gap between baby babble and their first words. Furthermore, research in this area suggests that children who have been taught to sign reap rewards such as larger expressive and receptive spoken language vocabularies, advanced cognitive development and reduced problematic behaviours like tantrums resulting from frustration.
We’re incredibly proud to have music classes at our Perkins Square and Southwark Bridge Road locations. We believe that young children respond in a very special way to music and movement. We use a wide variety of styles and genres of music and encourage children to engage creatively with the music through props, movement and their imagination.
At our pre-school nursery, we run cooking classes for all our children, which helps foster creativity and a collaborative spirit. Whilst also inspiring them to have fun with food and help them to try new flavours, explore their senses and make informed choices towards a healthy lifestyle.
We strive for our children to experience as much as possible of the world while in our care. This is why we have a comprehensive outings programme where we discover local gems such as the Tate, Borough Market, local playgrounds and life along the River Thames.
We believe that by doing this we provide our children with a deeper understanding of the world and our planet whilst encouraging them to discover more of it. We ensure children have to opportunity to freely run and play outdoors daily. We hold larger-scale outings to destinations such as farms and museums once per month.
