Stepping Stones Nursery Durham

Over 2's and Preschool - The Rainbow Room

In our Rainbow Room, for children over 2 and preschool, the children have access to a wide variety of resources to encourage development in all aspects of learning.

The nursery day is well planned which meets requirements of Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). It is also child led which promotes stimulating and interesting play.

The 3 and 4 year olds are offered the 15 hours funded education and this is delivered by a senior practitioner who offers challenging activities suited to all of the children’s needs.

Children are offered the opportunity to explore a variety of construction.

Small world equipment offers children the chance to develop imaginative play.

We have a cosy /reading area with cushions and a mini sofa and puppets for quiet time.

Mark making offers a wide variety of experiences using pens, pencils and tools to develop control over fine motor skills.

Role Play Area offers a variety of different opportunities for children to express themselves.

We explore our local environment around our Durham Nursery and visit the outdoors regularly, going to the park and experiencing listening walks and absorbing things that go on in our locality. Some of our regular Durham visits include trips to the library, bus station and fruit shop.
