Childcare services in Farlington, Portsmouth
Farlington Day Nursery provides quality childcare and early years education for children in Portsmouth.
All resources at the nursery are age appropriate and allow for easy access to help the children develop their own interests and preferences.
We then follow the child’s interest, promote independence and encourage the child to become a successful learner, effective contributor and a confident individual.
Here at Farlington we have five rooms. Although our rooms are divided into age groups we will place the children in the room relevant to both their age and ability – we do have a certain amount of flexibility within the rooms.Our nursery offers the unique blend of homely atmosphere mixed with friendly qualified staff and stimulating play equipment.
Our rooms include:
The Ladybirds room provides care for babies from 3 months to 1 year or once they are walking.
Within this room we encourage you to share and discuss with us your child’s personality to enable us to get to know a little about your child. In the main room we have a variety of age appropriate equipment with an attached feeding area and separate sleep room. Here we encourage a home book system which is kept of your baby’s routine and sent home each day to inform you of any achievements and activities taken part in, we also invite you to add or write in any notes you think may be relevant to us.
The Minibugs provide care for children between 1 and 2 years.
Upstairs in our baby unit we have a large play room with separate changing area, an art room, also used as a feeding room, a sleep room and kitchenette. Here we provide new experiences according to your child’s individual needs encouraging them to explore their environment. We continue with a home book writing down the details of your baby’s day.
The Busy bee room providing care and education for children aged 2 and 3 years.
Within this room we have six areas of learning in a layout encouraging the children to choose and explore their environment; there is also the facility to use their own art and crafts area. We can also work with yourselves to potty train your child if they are ready to do so; once again a home book system is continued if the parents wish.
The Butterfly room our younger Pre-School room provides care and education for children aged 3 years.
The layout of the room allows for the six areas of learning to be explored. Working with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework the children are encouraged to develop and explore through activities both structured and independent.
The Dragonfly room our older Pre-School providing care and education for children aged 4 years.
Following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum we plan and provide relevant and stimulating activities inside the six areas of learning with the individual child’s needs in mind. The room layout is such to provide the six areas of learning through out the nursery day. We work with our neighbourhood schools preparing them for departure to ‘BIG’ school!
has an abundance of activities for the children to relax, play and explore in. With three different surfaces the children are able to ride bikes on the paved area, climb, balance and set sail in the woodchip area or care for the plants and vegetables in our garden growing area and not forgetting the much loved pet corner where you will find our Guinea pigs and Rabbits.
