At Storytime Nursery we promote learning and creative play and encourage the children in every way.
All children are encouraged to do many different regular activities including baking, singing and crafts.
We have play areas with toys and books for quiet time, too.
We have fun during creative play. Painting, sticking and colouring are all firm favourites with the children, as you see from our exciting, vibrant wall displays.
Children love to use all their senses to discover new things. Our sensory table is very popular; the children can plunge their arms in water, leaves, foam, mud, bubbles, marbles and have fun with imaginary play.
Stories are a wonderful way to introduce new ideas, learn new words, learn rhymes and actions. We are located right next to the Library and make use of this fantastic facility.
Staff have been trained to do Action Kids. These are fun (planned) physical activities which help with all areas of the children's physical development. We listen to songs and sounds whilst doing dances, games and gymnastics.
We have the Onchan Recreation Gounds (the Rec) right on our doorstep and use this resource in our daily planning.
We also have our own garden and yard for outdoor play.
So no matter what the weather, we're out and about!
As part of our Spring topic we enjoyed exploring soil with garden tools and insects, we made lots of mess (which we love!).
Another great year with lots of lovely memories. Good luck to all of our preschoolers, we wish them all the best in their new and exciting adventures!!!
We had a fab time trying out our new Mud Kitchen!! The children loved it :) , its great and really really messy, Just what we love at Storytime.
We love baking and cooking at Storytime. A good time to find out new things, get messy and it's tasty, too!
The girls wanted wands to play while dressing up as princesses but we didn't have any so we made our own wands using leaves and twigs that we collected at the park. We played with them all afternoon!
Who needs paint brushes...it's much more fun using our hands! Sometimes it's the simplest of things that make us the happiest!
We love being outdoors exploring and playing in the sunshine.
We love the children playing games that they have organised themselves. Independent play and learning at its best.
We enjoyed beans on toast for snack. We are learning to use a knife and fork and have a go at cutting up our food ready for school.
