Moving rooms is one of the most exciting parts of nursery life, even though we know it can be a little scary. None of our children move rooms before they are ready – and this decision involves lots of conversations between parents, staff, and the children themselves. The transition itself is slow and involves lots of play experiences in their new room where the children familiarise themselves with their new environment, staff team and begin to form new friendships.
Our sensory room has a wonderful selection of resources and is made available for all children to use at different times during the day. The room enables us to support children’s inquisitive minds and encourages them to explore through their senses. In the afternoon, our sensory room transforms into a tranquil sleep-room, where children can rest and sleep. This room also doubles up as a soft play area or space to do group activities including circle games.
