Our Rooms

At Sunny Socks we have rooms to cater for children's individual development.

Jelly Tots (3 months to 2 years of age)

Our Jelly Tot rooms cater for up to 12 children and we have 4 full time members of fully trained staff who are also paediatric first aid trained.  

To accommodate the varying needs of each child our facilities include a play area where the children are encouraged to explore and develop their sense of independence, within a supportive and safe environment, a sensory room and a separate sleep room. he children will eat their lunch in the main dining room where high chairs are provided if required.  

We have purpose built furniture and storage allowing babies and toddlers to freely access toys. All ages can explore the home corner and role play area where they can play at cooking with fruit and vegetables, making a cup of tea or taking a doll for a walk in a buggy. 

Additionally, there is a cosy book corner with rugs, cushions & books that are        accessible by all to aid communication &d water play. Also located in this area is the ’Baby Gym’. This popular piece of equipment encourages children of all abilities to safely navigate steps and a slide. Each day the babies & toddlers are able to access our garden and the farm whether to play or on a walk or in a pushchair depending on their own ability.   

 

   

Kittens (2 - 3 years of age) & Cats (3 - 4 years of age)

The areas downstairs are used by both the Kittens and the Cats, sometimes all together and other times split into their age groups. Our rooms include two large play rooms, a cosy sensory room and a large and bright craft room that also is used for mealtimes.  We provide a stimulating & inviting environment with resources that are accessible & open ended. We also have a separate kitchen, downstairs toilets and nappy changing room.
 
Throughout the day each child has the opportunity to independently explore the setting. as well as join in some adult led activities.  

Within our rooms we have our role play area, a home corner, a maths and writing station, free access to arts and crafts, many activities and games and a computer. Also a cosy and inviting book corner where children can feel comfortable and relaxed when selecting from a variety of books and story sacks. 

The children have access to an outside play area to the front as well as a large garden to the rear, which is home to a mud kitchen, bark area, tyre climbing, story area under the trees, a play house with games and books in, a bug hotel, an art easel, a water play station and a huge grassy area for plenty of games and running. 
 
We have recently developed an allotment in the garden and in our paddock the children can visit the chickens we hatched and collect their eggs. We cross the paddock to access the farm and 600 acres of beautiful countryside, wildlife and farming activities. Here the children can learn and talk about animals, plants and farm machinery, ensuring lots of fresh air and puddle jumping!
