We are committed to offering fun and educational excursions with every season. This is beneficial to the children because it offers them an experience to explore outside of the centre where they can grow their confidence skills, self-awareness, adaptability, and resilience. This nurtures the children's natural curiosity and gives them a sense of safety by being able to venture out with trusted staff and knowing that they are in good hands.
Excursions play an important role in the development of children because it allows them to meet respected members of the community, engage the children in discussions about serious topics while still having fun. Excursions expose the children to new beautiful scenery to take in as well as engaging all their senses. These memories with their peers and Educators often stay with them long into adulthood. It's a great way for the children to bond with staff and their peers and develop strong friendships which will propel their learning at a rapid speed.
This is also a great way for the children to be exposed to different careers and to have respect for members of the community, animals, art, the environment, music etc. Every excursion is well thought out and planned to be a first class experience for your little one. We make sure that every excursion ticks all the boxes in regards to Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality framework.
Every excursion is well staffed, multiple risk assessments are completed and trial runs are executed to ensure it is safe, fun and educational before bringing the children along. Parents are more than welcome to join the excursion as well. We make sure the excursions are photographed and uploaded onto our private Facebook group for families unable to attend.
