Snowy Owl Nursery – SCARNING

Between the ages of approximately 21 months to 3 years old, children join us within our Snowy Owl Nursery. Here we have created a lovely warm and caring home from home environment into which our toddlers who may be starting nursery for the first time can be  welcomed. The Snowy Owl nursery has it's own dedicated entrance and has the benefit of separate free flow access to both our safety surface playground  and our lovely green forest school style garden. Our Snowy Owl nursery offers a lovely small group size of children which provides the children with the opportunity to build up strong and positive relationships with both their key person and peers.

Arts & Craft/Messy Area

This area is designed for arts, crafts, mark making and messy activities  with washing and toilet facilities being accessed directly from the room.

Exploration area

Within our exploration area our children are able to explore and move around freely enjoying table top resources, children’s free access educational equipment and  entrances to both outdoor play areas.

Physical Play

Within this area our children are offered a large wooden apparatus to enjoy which enables the children to develop their gross motor skills. This offers our children with the opportunity to engage in physical play whilst still being inside their nursery so making this ideal for wet days when the children cannot access the outdoor provision.

Home from Home Area/sleeping area

Our Role play carpeted room offers the children with the opportunity to experience a home from home environment. Our role play area offers the children with the opportunity to play with objects which they may see used by their families at home and to replay those that have a positive impact on them. Within this area we also offer a child sized sofa and books for the children to access should our children wish to rest and require a little wind down chill time during their nursery day. We also have the benefit of a separate curtain rail which can be drawn across to create a sleeping area for our children. This ensures seclusion and privacy for our little people when they need to rest, sleep and re charge their batteries.

"The caring, family atmosphere of the nursery enables children to feel exceptionally secure and happy.” - Ofsted 2014

We do offer a discount in Nursery for two children attending from the same family and a discount in Hoots if their brother or sister attends Nursery. This discount is a reduction in fees of 20p per hour. We are registered with the Norfolk Department of Education and do participate in the Government funded Nursery “voucher” scheme. This scheme is available to all three year old children and for eligible two year old children. The basis of the scheme is that the Government will provide an allowance which could be used to obtain  Nursery sessions of at least 12 hours per week of free nursery education to be used all year round. Please note that our morning funded only sessions are from 7.45am to 12.45pm with our afternoon funded only sessions being from 1.00pm to 6.00pm. A full day is 9.00am to 5.00pm, with a long day being 8.00am – 6.00pm. Further details of the scheme are available upon request. Please note that we do ask that children attend nursery for a minimum of two sessions each week. Please note that our fee structure is correct as at September17 and will be subject to being reviewed again in May 2018.
