The Rooms.

The Bumblebee Room (6-14 months)

The Bumblebee Room.

(6-14 months)

The Bumblebee Room is a bright, stimulating area that’s been specifically designed to suit babies from 6 weeks to 14 months of age. It’s a very cosy, welcoming environment and one where these very young children settle in quickly and very soon feel completely at home. Here, they learn and develop using a huge variety of high quality toys while also interacting with the multi-sensory equipment. It’s great fun for them as they explore the wonderful facilities and learn through play.

Every child’s learning and development is tailored to their individual needs and abilities. This is achieved through their Key Person, who is allocated to each child and will form a close bond with them. The Key Person continuously monitors their progress and adapts their learning programme to suit them perfectly, so their learning and development is optimised for them as an individual.

The Ladybird Room (14 months to 2 years)

The Ladybird Room.

(14 months to 2 years)

Between the ages of 14 months and 2 years, children play and learn in the nursery’s Ladybird Room. It’s light and airy and also has lovely deep windows, which allow the children to see the world outside while, of course, remaining totally safe and secure. Lots of stimulating activities are on offer and it’s another exceptionally well-equipped room, including a heuristic area that provides natural objects for children to explore.

Additional facilities there allow opportunities for messy play, role play, play with sand and water, mark-making and a cosy book area. Added together, these facilities, equipment and our early years educational programmes give the young children lots of opportunities for playing, physical development and learning.

The Caterpillar Room (2 years to 38 months)

The Caterpillar Room.

(2 years to 38 months)

Children aged between 2 years and 38 months also have their own designated room; the Caterpillar Room. This spans a large and spacious area that also allows the children free access to the secure outdoor play area throughout the day. The Caterpillar Room offers activities and facilities tailored to suit every individual child. This is achieved through close monitoring of the interests and abilities of each one, via their Key Person. Children can explore the many stimulating areas and equipment that are regularly adapted, so as to retain interest, excitement and engagement. The different areas allow opportunities for activities like messy play, mark making, construction and role play along with a book corner and sensory zone that includes natural items for children to explore.

Once children reach the age of two, each will have an official Progress Check. This is an important written assessment of their development and progress, as prescribed by the EYFS learning and development framework to which the nursery adheres. The Progress Check also gives parents or guardians the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress in a face-to-face meeting with the child’s Key Person at the nursery.

The Butterfly Room (38 months +)

The Butterfly Room.

(38 months +)

Once children at the nursery reach the age of 38 months — just over three years of age — they move to the Butterfly Room. The ‘preschoolers’ are now in the final stage of preparing for school, so we do everything we can do help them become ‘school ready’. With that in mind, the Butterfly Room is incredibly well equipped with designated areas and activities designed to help them achieve their learning and development goals to best effect.

These include areas focused on mathematics, I.T., role play, literacy, reading and construction along with investigative activities that challenge them and allow them to experiment. Social skills are also developed there to improve independence, self-esteem, communication, leadership and team-working. There are also opportunities for physical education.

All activities, learning opportunities and development are tailored for each child by their key person and the room staff. This is done within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework as prescribed by the Department of Education for early years settings such as ours. Using this approach allows children to meet their learning and development goals, to achieve personal bests and to be fully prepared by the time they transition to school in the year they become 5.

The Busy Bugs Room (for all ages)

The Busy Bugs Room.

(for all ages)

The Busy Bugs Room is a room that all ages can share. As such, it’s equipped with a wonderful variety of facilities and equipment, for example an interactive whiteboard, where they can develop their ICT skills, and a cooker where they can enjoy cooking activities and prepare healthy snacks. There are also opportunities and equipment here that allow the children to develop their language skills, take part in gym sessions, enjoy sensory play and much more.

The outside play area (for children aged 3 to 5 years)

The Outside Play Area.

(for children 3 to 5 years old)

Our extensive outdoor area features an enormous variety of fun, educational toys and equipment that children can use to play and learn. It’s a very stimulating area, specially designed and allows children to develop motor skills, play, socialise, use their imaginations and to learn about the world around them.

Equipment includes climbing frames, toys, natural materials like wood and sand, an ‘outdoor kitchen’ play area, ‘music maker’ equipment for exploring percussion and sound, scooters and buggies the children can drive, a water zone, construction zone and our very own animal enclosure where children can look after the nursery animals, which include chickens and guinea pigs.

Nearby — the Great Outdoors.

Leaps & Bounds Day Nursery is fortunate to be situated very close to Summerfield Park and Edgbaston Reservoir. The children really love going to these natural, outdoor areas and of course exploring the natural environment and the Great Outdoors is a part of our Forest School activities, which you can learn much more about here.

  • Our nursery is located close to Summerfield Park and Edgbaston Reservoir, where the children can explore and enjoy nature (under adult supervision).
