WHAT WE DO
At Betty's Daycare...
Our staff at Betty's feel strongly about looking after the environment and keeping all animals safe. Environmental education based on life experiences should begin during the very earliest years of life. Such experiences play a critical role in shaping lifelong attitudes, values, and patterns of behaviour towards natural environments. We believe that children feel secure when they are able to make sense of their surroundings, therefore our indoor and outdoor areas have been specially designed to provide the best environment in which children can develop and thrive.
Our outdoor area has been re-designed to encourage children's social, emotional and physical development by helping them understand nature, distinct areas for roleplay, problem solving, sensory discovery and real life creativity. Our indoor setting is carefully planned to allow children to feel relaxed in a comfortable setting with rugs and cushions for story time and a space to teach numbers, colours, learning phonics and languages.
Bilingual children (whose second language is English) will be encouraged to enhance their language skills. Betty's Daycare has a strong belief that independence and creativity are key to happy children. A few of our activities include dance, movement, yoga, cookery, art, science experiments and additionally we plan individual parties for special occasions throughout the year (including birthdays). Within these areas, children are able to embark upon self discovery, participate in planned activities around the EYFS curriculum and create their own pursuits, all of which fits into the six areas of learning and development set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
