The Nursery has been purpose built.
Rooms are specially designed to give optimum natural light.
The heating throughout the building is electric, from ceiling vents that are thermostatically controlled. By having the heating in the ceiling in several areas of each room, it helps prevent cold spots. It provides a safer environment for the children as there are no hot pipes/radiators for the children to burn themselves on and it also frees up more floor/wall space for the children’s play area.
The nursery furnishings are comfortable and hard wearing. Highchairs, play and craft tables and dining tables are all made from natural beech, and all have rounded edges.
Honey Bears and Panda Bears Classroom
Sky lighting with remote control openings enable light and more ventilation to flood through when required. This is a large room with a sliding door divider and includes natural scenes of trees and grass all around, creating a feeling of calm and wellbeing forthe children.
Bear Cubs (6 weeks old – 2.5 years old)
This room has been designed to incorporate a skylight, which helps give natural lighting in areas that are often overlooked.
The sensory areas incorporates lots of textures, sounds, lights, bubbles, glow in the dark stars & planets as well as soft padded flooring to ensure little ones are safe whilst exploring.
There is two gardens at Greenside. One for the 0-2 year olds and one for 2-5 year olds. Both gardens are fully equipped with outdoor play apparatus, and also have safety surfaces such as play bark and soft play surfaces. There is a mud kitchen accebable through the 2-5’s garden and also a woodwork shed.
Our cook Donna prepares wonderful meals and has enabled our nursery setting to be awarded a 5 star hygiene rating from the environmental health for the past 4 years.
