This is our 2-5 room where the children love to wander from area to area. They all love the home corner. It relates directly to their own lives and their interests and encourages communication through role play. We try to incorporate real items from home in this area.🏠
Another favourite is our book /cosy area. The children love all gathering together in here and reading stories or listening to stories told by each other. 📚
📣As parents cannot come into the Nursery at the moment due to COVID regulations we are going to be posting photos of the rooms and some of the things your kids like to do over the next week or so watch out for our posts and feel free to ask any questions.

Hi I am Gina, I am 23 and have just recently joined the Kiddieshack family. I am working towards my childcare qualification. I am currently working in the 2-3 room and am loving getting to know all the children. I have a daughter who is 18 mths and love spending time with her at the weekends, playing and baking cakes.
I look forward to getting to know all the parents when we are allowed to do so.
