Care and Learning

Here at Space Station Day Nursery we pride ourselves on the care and development of our children and all aspects of our nursery are focused towards their development.

Age Specific Rooms

Here at the Space Station Day Nursery all our childrens rooms are self sufficient with their own baby changing areas, toilets facilities and mini kitchen areas.

Large Play Areas

Our large spacious indoor areas are used for additional activities such as soft play, music and movement, dance and drama and parachute games. These fantastic indoor resources also provide space and opportunity for adult-led activities, supporting co-ordination, balance, spatial awareness, rhythm and confidence.

Outdoor Play

Outdoor play forms a large part in the development of our children. The outdoor play area with safety flooring contains a multitude of activities providing our children with the opportunity to push, ride cars, climb, play with sand or simply explore the area.

P.E Sessions

Each week during term time a planned Activate fun sports session is provided, introducing our children to various sport skills and fitness exercises, using fun games and Sport of the week. All the children do warm up exercises along with cool down stretches. These sessions will develop children's sports fundamentals such as hand and eye coordination, balance, flexibility, feet and eye co-ordination, endurance and ball skills.

Dance and Movement

Joe Beans Pre-School Movement & Dance class offers the children of the Space Station Day Nursery the opportunity to have a trained dance teacher.

Joe Beans delivers a fun, imaginative and developmentally appropriate programme using themes, props, music and more within the nursery environment.

Joe Beans will be working with the children in Waddlers, Toddlers and Pre-school during term time.

Music Centre

Here at the Space Station Day Nursery we know that children can flourish in a stimulating musical environment.

Therefore we have linked in with a specialised music company to deliver a structured music programme, designed for babies and young children that links closely with the EYFS during term time.

Spanish Lessons

Here at the Space Station Day Nursery we want to help the children receive a full and varied curriculum to enhance their learning and development. One of our activities which we offer to our children is Spanish language tuition. The Spanish tutor will visit on a weekly basis, the children have lots of fun learning the language through interactive games and songs. The Spanish lesson also reinforces other skills which they spend in nursery such as speaking and listening. It's amazing how quickly the pick it up.
