Doodlebugs at Aberuthven...
Since opening in January 2007 we pride ourselves on our reputation of providing exceptional childcare. Our Aberuthven Nursery is a purpose built nursery, with lovely open, clean, bright, richly resourced playrooms. If you've never visited us you won't realise that we also have a really large outdoor play area, which has developed over the years into a wonderful exciting outdoor learning space for our children to explore!
Many of our staff here have been at nursery since opening and have helped develop the high standard of child care and education that everyone expects from a Doodlebug nursery. Our staff range in ages, training, education and skills. We make up a large "Doodlebug Family". We're passionate about our nursery and when you read our inspection reports, you will see that the Inspector believes this too.
We have four playrooms:
We have two rooms for our under 2 years.
Our Snugglebug room is specifically for our little babies to ease them into nursery life. It is a special room with a focus on nurture and care. It has a homely feel with lots of interesting resources for our little ones who are not yet mobile but are keen to learn about the world.
Our Cuddlebug room is for our more adventurous toddler, whos ready to be active and play along side their friends. This room also has their own access to a protected outdoor play area just for this age group.
Our 2-3 years playrooms
Our Chatterbug room is often a very busy bustling room as our children are learning to become more independent and are very eager to get involved! There's lot of different activities available to keep the busy 2-3 year old engaged. This room also has their own access to our wonderful outdoor space. We like to spend a great deal of time exploring in the garden. Planting vegetables, making mud pies, playing in the fairy den or simply hiding in the Willow den.
Our Pre-School playrooms
Our Jitterbug room is the largest room and located upstairs at nursery. It has its own side entrance for easy pick up and drop off for parents. This room is a hub of learning! There is lots for our Early Learners to investigate. We offer a full Pre-School programme in partnership with the local authority. We help young children become independent. Theres lots of opportunities to play and learn together, to share ideas and interests, to reconcile differences and to begin to develop a sense of fairness. Our children are actively encouraged to contribute their own ideas and be involved in decision making about their day. Through out the day we are involved in energetic play, which supports and extends their developing physical skills, stamina and strength. We deliver a rich early learning programme at Doodlebugs.
Each month we have a range of activities on at nursery, ranging from Dance Shows, fundraising afternoon teas and many more exciting oppoturnities for Parents/Guardians to come along and enjoy their childrens hard work at nursery!
