We love messy activities and enjoy exploring the environment in different ways through active play. We encourage opportunities for the children to express themselves individuals and ensure that their thoughts, views and opinions are valued.
we like to encourage the children to become more independent by providing self service at meal times, and introduce them to potty training when your child is ready.

We like to provide a fun and stimulating environment for your children. I hope to see you soon.

We operate a key worker system and each member of staff monitors a child's progress and development and attends to their child's individual needs. 

For children that are ready, we begin potty training, children are offered lots of opportunities throughout the day to use the potty or toilet and are given lots of encouragement, support and praise. 

We have an achievement board which displays individual children's achievements, these are linked to the EYFS framework and transferred into their individual development folder. Each week we carry out observations on each child to monitor achievements and help plan for those next important developmental milestones. 

We have a daily timetable that provides structure to the day. 

Our timetable consists of lots of messy and creative activities, like painting, jelly play, gloop, water play, sand play, pasta play, sticking and lots more. 

Outside play is definitely a favourite with the Bramwell bear room children, we go out every day come rain or shine. We wrap up warm for the winter with hats, scarves and gloves and in the summer we have lots of sunscreen on and our sunhats. We really love it when it rains because we can plash in the puddles in our Wellingtons, (staff included!) We have lots of fun on our out door equipment such as ride in cars, 2 seater trikes, scooters, pull along carts, slides, ride on aeroplanes etc the list is endless! We often go the local parks, Funsters, and exciting bus trips too! 

At meal times we all eat together including staff at the low level tables. Children are encouraged eat independently, wash hands and brush teeth. 

We have a mid morning snack of fruit and a fresh drink is available all day YUM YUM! 

We have very busy days in the Bramwell room so after our dinner we can get rather sleepy, we have our own individual beds and sleep bags with our own blankets and sheets. 

Every day we have circle time where we sit down together on the floor and have lots of fun singing, reading stories and begin to learn about shapes, colours, numbers, body parts, animals and lots, lots more!

Bramwell bear also offer a reading diary scheme to encourage children to read at home
