The Discoverers Room is where all our youngest babies have lots of fun and cuddles. At this very early age, babies are taking everything in – watching and observing everything around them, listening to all the interesting new sounds, and learning by feeling and touching everything in sensory exploration. We work to encourage a baby’s development in a space which is homely, nurturing and stimulating.
And they’re off! No longer babies, children in this room are keen to get going and start going on their own little Adventures! Toddlers at this age are starting to find their feet and independence, and it really starts to shine through. Each day the carefully planned activities are engaging and exciting, bringing new challenges and experiences for the children. To support the child in their quest for newfound freedom, adults provide a fantastic environment where children are safe to independently explore, experiment and learn through play.
With growing confidence, and with their own unique personality really coming through, children at this age start to really develop social skills and make lasting friendships. In the Innovators Room we support these skills by focusing on group activities, indoors and outdoors, offering lots of physical and social interaction. With a room full of curious resources and treasures and a team with a wealth of knowledge, these little Innovators can spend time developing key skills such as communication and independence whilst fostering that beautiful sense of awe and wonder that our little people already have in abundance.
The Pre-school Room is always buzzing with energy as the children begin their first steps to mainstream education, getting ready to go to Reception at big school. There are opportunities to learn at every turn, including early reading and maths skills, mark-making, imaginative play and ICT, which are reinforced through what we call ‘purposeful play’. Activities and play experiences are planned to ensure each child is challenged and given a chance to learn and develop on an individual basis, whilst having lots of fun of course!
WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY
We love Muddy Boots- it has a wonderful, informal and happy atmosphere. The staff are so helpful and my son loves every minute of his time there. No fussing, no bureaucracy, happy kids and staff having fun. I would recommend this nursery to anyone who wants tired but happy kids at the end of the day, who want their kids to have some exercise and fresh air and don’t mind them coming home muddy. We also love the fact that the staff are so happy and clearly enjoy their jobs, are interested in the kids and their development and are motivated and enthused by their work.
Really happy with Muddy Boots. My lad always so excited to go every day. Staff always very helpful and friendly and comes home with lots of things he has done, like cooking and making things. He really loves the staff there and talks about them all the time at home. Cant recommend enough.
Friendly staff, a safe environment and a wealth of resources have made this nursery the perfect choice for our daughter. She is very happy there and her development has progressed rapidly since she started there. We are particularly impressed by the nursery’s reporting procedures and look forward to reading her learning journal. We are always told what she has been doing during the day and it is obvious that the staff make every effort to get to know the children really well. This shows by how happy our little girl is when we take her in on a morning. We love that the children are encouraged to be outside as much as possible!
Muddy Boots has a very relaxed yet focussed atmosphere. The staff are very supportive and approachable to children and parents. You feel able to discuss any issues your child may have as well as any preferences you would prefer the staff to facilitate. My daughter settled very quickly and she already has very settled and positive routine she carries out each week.
My son had been going to Muddy Boots for a couple of months and he has fitted in so well, mainly due to the staff. Without sounding cheesy it really has the feel of it being a home from home. He always has lots of fun and really has come on leaps and bounds in his development since joining. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We love Muddy Boots! From our very first visit all the staff have been very helpful, friendly and it is clear to see that they love their job and are so committed to each individual child and their development. We love that the kids are involved in the decision making on what they shall do and can just be kids. We’d recommend Muddy Boots to anyone, our daughter is very happy there and so are we.
The care that is given to our son is outstanding. His learning is very individual and incorporates his interest at any one particular time. The staff are very knowledgeable and always very helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Muddy Boots Nursery to anyone.
“You have been amazing in what you have done for Niamh, despite her only attending one day per week. She is an independent young lady who settles really well with other people and absolutely loves coming each week. We cannot thank you enough.”
