Rising 3’s (2 ½ yrs to 3+ years)
Our Rising 3’s room is light, airy and inspiring with large windows and doors encouraging the children to use the outdoor space to learn and play. Free flow is encouraged into the garden, extending children’s learning and their enjoyment of nature.
Our team use natural resources and a variety of creative media, including water, sand, mud and other mediums. We use age appropriate activities to challenge the children’s learning and support individual children in the next stage of their development. We use circle time to introduce structure into the day, using number games, songs and stories focusing on the use of phonics and early reading techniques.
Meal times are an important social occasion for the children at this age as they begin to learn to lay the tables, serve their own food and use a knife and fork.

At our nursery for Rising 3’s, a healthy approach to food and exercise is very important to us. Whilst in our care you can be reassured that your child is getting a balanced diet throughout the day, as well as learning about it too.
To this end we have our own in-house chef and assistant working in our on site kitchens who make all of our lunches and teas fresh daily. Every meal is home cooked from scratch, enabling us to be confident that we provide the least number of additives possible. This also allows us to cater confidently for allergies.
