The Robins (2 + to 3+ ) are housed in the middle mobile unit called mobile 3.
It has a free flow access to the outdoors all year.
After the freedom of the Nest, we begin to introduce activities that encourage children to get to know their peers. We have short gathering times, stories, yoga and introduce some structure to the day.
We move from the hourly flexibility of the Nest and children attend either whole morning, afternoon or all day sessions.
We begin to take the children off-site for the first time, using the field and areas close by such as the Copse and the Old Dandelion Camp.
Our aim is to go off-site at least 3 times a week, more often towards the end of the academic year as children get more confident. Working around nap times and nappy changing can prove tricky!
The Robins have nappy changing facilities and tiny toilets (2 year old size), their own small sink/kitchen and a sleep area.
The outdoors has:
- an elevated tree house
- a mindful garden
- a water fountain and stone area
- a climbing and lookout post
- a shaped sunken area that forms a stream
The gardens are currently being re-launched as we close this building during forest holiday club.
The building itself has underfloor heating and so relaxation and yoga is a lovely thing to do to warm up in the colder months.
