Topsie Rabbit covers all 7 areas of the (EYFS) Early Years Foundation Stage through active learning and play. (Revised EYFS introduced September 2012) Activities on offer include messy play, sand, water, art and craft activities, natural and malleable materials, cooking to name but a few.
There is an ICT area, quiet/book corner, role play, music sessions, cookery, small world and a wide variety of table top, floor equipment and DMP (Developmental Movement Play). The children’s learning is extended through visiting local places of interest such as the museum, library, vets and shops.
Topsie children take part in an annual sports day, a leavers concert, a day trip with their parent/carer, a Summer fete, Christmas party, swimming and/or forest school (subject to availability).
Topsie encourages parental involvement and offers frequent information evenings, stay and play, meetings with key person, home targets, and viewing of your child's Learning Journey as often as parents wish.
During our sessions we offer healthy snacks with plenty of fruit and vegetables, some of which the children have grown. Children are encouraged to be independent learners by helping prepare their own snack and gain knowledge of general health and safety by risk assessing their play area daily. A summer holiday club runs subject to demand.
