Richmond Childcare Setting
Our domestic setting is based within 0.25 miles of Richmond station and all the rooms have large windows with plenty of natural light.
Within the setting we have a wide range of toys and games to stimulate development and encourage participatory play. We have a role play area with dress up box, arts and crafts equipment and an outside area with play equipment and ride-on toys. We have a tent which is used as a den, construction toys (megablocks, duplo, etc), a ball pit and toys that encourage standing and mobility in early walkers. We have a good range of books which are easily accessible to all the children and we actively engage in story time with them at least once a day. We often link our activities to the stories we have read in order to further encourage the children’s interest in books and reading.
We do have separate activities for babies and older children but like to encourage interaction as we believe the presence of an older child can help bring on a baby developmentally. Similarly we believe that babies are great for helping older children develop a sense of responsibility and an understanding of caring for others.
