At Rookies we have four purpose built rooms which our children can enjoy being active and learning in during their time with us. Each room has been especially designed and resourced to cater for the relevant age group and provides a fun, safe and stimulating learning environment.
Cubs : 12 -16 Months
Our young cubs will be exploring and developing new relationships with their peers and key person. The room allows for the young cubs to develop their senses during messy play whilst growing and learning and extending their development. Building the partnership with parents at the very beginning is paramount.
Marlins : 16 – 24 Months
Our little fishes will be active and develop into independent learners. Children can access both child initiated and adult directed play to support their development whilst strengthening the partner parent relationship.
Rangers : 24 – 36 Months
Your little explorer will be discovering new boundaries and taking risks whilst developing their personal, social and emotional skills. Relationships with peers will become more apparent and nurtured. Staff will extend and develop the children's curiosity through activities and the support of parents continuing their learning at home.
Giants : 36 months+
Our little giants will be investigating their environment with footprints of their learning and become good role models for our Rangers, Marlins and Cubs. Through the seven areas of The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) your children will discover and become independent learners. Children will continue their learning and developing whilst staff prepare and support for their next adventure in life.
