Little Shrimps nursery at Morecambe has four large rooms, two on the ground floor and two on the first floor. Each room is set up to provide for a range of activities and has ramped access.
Room1 is for the sole use of the babies. It has cots for sleeping and a milk station. It is light and airy with plenty of space for children to move and play. It is equipped with furniture and age appropriate toys. The enormous picture window allows the babies to constantly see the older children playing outside in the garden.
Room 2 is for children under three and is well equipped. It has a water and sand area, tables for setting out toys and activities, role play area and a book/quiet area.
On the ground floor there is a disabled toilet with Nappy changing facility.
The whole of the first floor is used for the 3-5 year olds. There are two activity rooms each well resourced with a different wide range of equipment to support all areas of the early years foundation including role-play, writing, small world, large/small construction, books, computer, ICT, creative activities, model making, baking, water, sand and malleable play. There are two child size toilets and one adult toilet on this floor.
There are as many as 30 children in the nursery at a time of whom 11 can be babies.
The rooms act as 'base rooms'. The nursery staff use these to welcome the children at the start of a session. In between, the staff follow rotas and work with the children outside as well as taking the children for walks and to other pre-arranged places of interest. All staff are qualified to at least level 3 and have a vast knowledge/experience of Early Years Provision.
Children have plenty of time to play outside in the fresh air. Our garden is very safe and secure protected by a security lock on the gate and a 5' high fence.
