Children are in a safe, secure and fun environment – they are able to play, learn and have quiet time or take a nap whenever they want.
We treat each other with utmost respect and sensitivity by awarding praise and recognition.
All of them will benefit from the company of others. The younger will have the opportunity to learn from the biggest and the biggest will learn the values of looking after and teaching the younger ones.
Our small kids, under 4s
Our setting and organization ensure that all children have plenty of time and space to explore, play and learn, but most of all to enjoy their day.
Babies and toddlers are offered lots of different activities, with a wonderful sensory experience filled with textures, lights and creativity where our babies are encouraged to be freely creative and are provided with a vast range of quality materials and resources to stimulate and inspire their young developing minds.
All of our babies have access to their own secure garden where they can enjoy sunshine and fresh air.
We have wonderful objects rich in different textures for babies to grasp and manipulate. Lighting and mirrors are also part of the babies’ rooms enabling them to experiment with shadows and reflections.
As for your curiosity, funny and active people, they will have the opportunity to join in dance, music, gardening, language or drama. The garden is another amazing learning environment where they will have lots of time to practice their climbing skills, riding tricycles, bikes, pushing buggies, throwing, rolling and catching balls, and enjoying imaginative and creative play in the fresh air.
If they need to, they will commence their childcare experience with some short settling in sessions to ensure they are comfortable before attending a full session.
We plan activities for all the different rooms according to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This framework values and celebrates the care and education for children and babies aged 0 to 5 years by recognising them as skillful and competent. The principles of EYFS affirm our child centered approach and highlight the importance of relationships in a baby's development.

Getting your child ready for school
The leap from home to school can be a big one for any child – that’s why we can help to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
Children need to enter school with all the skills and desire to think for themselves, focus on their responsibilities, solve problems, work with others, communicate, and gain an increasing understanding of the world and how it works. We help equip them with all necessary stages of gaining self care (i.e.
They have to be independent in terms of changing their clothes, going to the toilet and eating independently).
Our big kids, over 5s
When our big kids finish school, after learning and concentrating all day, they need a home environment. They are tired and need to be able to wind down and relax. We offer them a room with space to lie down and reading, socializing with friends and play time - still lots of opportunity to learning and exploring. All of this time they will spend in a bilingual environment of Spanish (optionally German) and English. All the adults will be talking in either Spanish or English, that means that the kids will hear the same word in both languages, hence learning a second language with ease and through play.
We collect children from school, come home together and offer a snack. We draw up a weekly plan for them as:
Monday: Music, dance
Thursday: Dressing up and drama
Friday: Popcorn and movie ( and discussion)
After that they will have time to do their homework or reading books.
