A half day at Little Monkeys includes a meal, snacks, drinks, nappies and creams.
During our half day sessions we incorporate play and activities which aid your childs personal developement.
We believe that young children learn best
through play, so we plan activities that are
both educational and enjoyable.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage
guidance closely and aim to give the
children entrusted to us a clear advantage
by the time they start school, with an
emphasis on having fun. By skilfully mixing
education and enjoyment into each activity we can
lay a firm foundation for a life-long love of learning.
We put children at the centre of our daily activities and routines. We understand how the security of daily routines helps children to feel safe and secure, which enables them to grow, learn and develop with confidence.
Communication, language and literacy:
Children have access to books, and materials for mark-making at all times throughout the day. Children are actively encouraged to develop early language and literacy skills in whatever areas they show an interest.
Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy:
Children have access to equipment for sand, construction and water play, which helps them learn important mathematical concepts about shape and space, problem solving, sorting, matching, ordering and sequencing, and patterns and numbers in a very relaxed and fun way. We sing number songs, practise number recognition and talk about numbers.
Knowledge and understanding of the world:
We use various activities for learning, such as going to our garden area to observe the environment, including bugs and wildlife, talking about ourselves and our families, and identifying similarities, differences and change.
Creative development and exploring media and materials:
The children have daily access to craft materials as well as art activities
At Little Monkeys we recognize the importance of physical play, both indoor and outdoor. We have a range of equipment for outside play and indoors we have role-play toys, construction equipment and threading activities.
Personal, social and emotional development:
We encourage children to develop their self-esteem and build confidence by creating an environment where they feel safe and secure.
Children are encouraged to become independent whilst being considerate of others. We help them learn about the importance of relationships, and how to respect themselves and others so that they develop a positive self-image.
