Explore our truly unique learning opportunities for babies & children
At Kirby Muxloe Day Nursery, we offer a rich and varied range of activities across all our age groups that are specifically designed to be fun, interactive and confidence building.
Our child & baby friendly activities include painting, cooking, singing, story-time, messy play, dressing up and role play. In addition, Kirby Muxloe Day Nursery is delighted to offer children and babies a variety of extra learning opportunities, unique to our nursery, these include:
Our Organic Kitchen Garden
Our children have access to growing areas within the garden where they grow their own vegetables and flowers. Our growing areas provide the children with a fantastic opportunity to learn about healthy and delicious food; by understanding how fruit and vegetables grow, what they look and feel like, and how they taste.
Explore the great outdoors
Our wonderfully large outdoor space consists of a large paved and grassy garden with a nature area positioned at the bottom of the garden. The outdoor areas are fully equipped with age-appropriate play equipment, such as bikes, hoops, slides and a play house, and we have a separate, secure play area for our babies to explore, which consists of a smaller slide, bikes and soft cushioned areas for the non-walkers.
The nature area consists of a bug hotel - the children enjoy using magnifying glasses to see what bugs are staying there! We also have binoculars for the children to inspect the trees and look for birds and squirrels.
We like to take the children for trips to the local park or to feed the ducks. We also plan trips for our pre-school children to visit the ruins at Kirby Castle.
Un, Deux, Trois
All of our pre-school children have access to weekly French lessons, taught by a qualified French teacher.
Music and movement sessions for early years
We provide regular opportunities for all our children to enjoy music and movement sessions, which are specifically designed to encourage self expression, build confidence and increase activity levels in children.
Extra curricular activities are designed to be fun and interactive, as well as providing structure and opportunities for self expression into the children's daily routine.
