Home from home at Winchester Day Nursery
Children’s early learning experiences are often centred on the home and domestic life.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ West Downs Day Nursery on Romsey Road, practitioners have used the home as inspiration for learning in the setting. They recycled old wooden crates to create a modular home which they filled with people and accessories.
The children have had a fantastic time playing with this equipment and moving it around the room to arrange in ways that held meaning for them.
West Downs Manager Lyndsey Burns said:
“Our highly trained practitioners developed these fantastic learning aids from different sized crates and boxes. The children have been free to create domestic scenes from everyday life offering endless opportunities for open-ended play and learning.”
