What Makes our Tigers so Special?

Being a Tiger is Lots of Fun!

Our preschoolers are known as the Tigers. An important part of your child’s day is learning through play; each day is planned to give all children enjoyable and challenging experiences such as number games, role play, exploring their own ideas, sharing stories and singing.

Throughout the day we take the opportunity to work in small groups. These activities can be child or adult led.

We Love Being Outdoors

We spend 50% of our day outside with free flow between the garden and our potting shed allowing easy access between indoors and outdoors.

Circle Time helps listening and communication skills. We get together daily to discuss everyday events like the weather, family, the day's activities and mindfulness, a routine of short exercise activities to release stress, expend excess energy and enhance learning.

Forest School

We visit our local Forest School at Lyppard Grange Primary School during term time to take part in Forest School Activities. These are led by our qualified Forest School Leader, Alison from Tigers (More information here).

School Readiness

Independence is a very important skill practised throughout the nursery, but particularly in the Tigers to get ready for school. We encourage them to help prepare snacks, pour drinks, attend to their own toileting, dressing and undressing both shoes and clothes. One of the most important skills is making choices for themselves.

We also work closely with local schools and invite reception class teachers into nursery to meet the children in familiar surrounds to help with a smooth transition to school.

Our Parents Say...

“Both of our boys come here and love it. The staff are so friendly and caring; they really know every child.”

“My daughter will sadly be leaving Happylands soon to start school but she has spent 4 years in the happiest, most supportive nursery you can imagine. The best decision I ever made was Happylands. Will be missed so much.”

“All four of my grandchildren have and do attended nursery here. They all love it and it has been a useful experience in their development and progression to school for 2 of them.”
