Welcome to Little Owls – where play is how we spread our wings and grow
In our toddler room, we can accommodate 20 children between the age of 2 and 3 years old and we have an excellent staff:child ratio of 1:4 ensuring that planned activities are designed to stimulate your child’s imagination and love of learning throughout the day.
Our Little Owls will enjoy many exciting and creative activities with free play sessions, group time, art and craft, sensory play and physical exercise.
Group time activities help our Little Owls to develop important life skills including patience, cooperation, sharing and communication.
With beautiful farmland on our doorstep, children also get to explore their natural surroundings and visit their friendly equine neighbours from time to time - the horses in the neighbouring paddock.
Learning Through Play
The children in Little Owls have so many wonderful facilities inside and out including a large outdoor play space perfect for curious explorers, dedicated messy play areas, cosy corners and much more.
Meal times are a social affair as children sit together to socialise. Children are encouraged to grow their independence at meal times, however staff are always nearby to lend a hand and encourage good manners.
Sleep and rest times
Sleep is fundamental to growth so here in the toddler room we still provide the opportunity for children to either sleep or rest after a stimulating morning. Children are provided with their own mattress, sheets and blankets and if they do not require a sleep they can use this time for quiet activity or a story.
Our Little Owls have access to a bathroom with a selection of potties for those who are toilet training. Our team will work closely with parents to achieve this stage of child development. Lots of encouragement is given with stars and certificates.
We work closely with all children to ensure they meet their individual needs by exploring the seven areas of learning, this is supported by the use of age appropriate toys and activities to suit their stage of development and abilities.
Staff will provide verbal feedback to parents at the end of the day and will discuss your child’s progress each day. We foster an open and cooperative relationship with all parents to ensure we can nurture the needs of each and every Little Owl.
What is Provided?
Included within your daily childcare fee is breakfast, snacks, lunch, tea, milk and nappies. We ask parents to provide a change of clothes; bottles and comforters.
Getting to know your child
If a toddler joins our Little Owls room and has not previously been in the Owlets room, we ask the parents to provide us with some background information to help us better understand your child’s needs, for example we would like to know about your child’s likes and dislikes, his/her routines and their comforts. This is obtained on our ‘All About Me’ form.
Nice staff, happy to accommodate different needs, always keep you updated on things (both the carers and the women in the office dealing with admin). Our son feels comfortable there and I love the fact that it is near a farm, rather than a busy town centre or a busy road. The children have access to a nice outdoor space and can see some horses.
My son has been going to Farm View for 4 months and absolutely loves it! All the staff are so friendly! We were shown around by a team member who was so helpful explaining the daily running of the nursery and how they monitor and help a child develop. She was very warm and reassuring. All the staff that look after my son have helped him develop with language, counting and social skills. I have seen a huge leap in his confidence since he started at Farm View nursery. We are so glad we chose Farm View!
Great nursery with natural surroundings. Staff are helpful, friendly and helped my child when she struggled with confidence. All areas of learning are met throughout. Would happily recommend to friends and family.
Our daughter has been going to Farm View since she was 10-months-old, and really enjoys it. She has learnt to develop her social and motor skills. The staff are great and do a fab job in helping the children learn. They introduce lots of fun and different activities. Would recommend Farm View to any parent.
Fabulous countryside Nursery with a wonderful friendly family vibe! Our little girl started at Farm View in July 2020 (and obviously not under normal circumstances due to Covid) however for the past 7 months she has been loving going to Nursery. Everyone was so supportive of her settling in process whilst all done in a covid-secure way. We have been so thankful for the measures that Farm View has put in place to keep the Nursery open as it is such a wonderful part of 'normal' for our little one. The daily activities in the Owlet room (and across the whole nursery) are so different that her experience and development is encouraged in so many different and engaging ways - not to mention her social development - she is becoming quite the social butterfly always mentioning the names of friends from her bubble! We are a very outdoor orientated family so I am always delighted that the children are encouraged to go outside whatever the weather! We love this Nursery and highly recommend!
