Billy Badgers

Our Billy Badgers room caters for 12 children and is homely and open with direct access to the outdoor area. All play equipment for this age group is housed at child height within their environment to encourage independence and free choice. The layout of the room is changed regularly both to maintain the interest of the children and in response to child-led planning (where the children tell us how they would like, e.g. the home corner to be used, be it transformed in to a doctor's surgery or a hairdressers).

Taking care of our plants teaches us how things grow, we have planted seeds and watched them grow in to vegetables, then dug them up, washed and peeled and tasted them whilst raw and then cooked. Our beloved room mascot 'Billy Bear' accompanies our children home to enjoy being part of their family life to visit, e.g. the supermarket, relatives or even go abroad on holiday; his adventures are entered into his journal and shared with the children on his return to nursery.

We start to really develop our exploratory skills in the Billy Badgers, we love being outdoors, magnifying glasses to hand in search of bugs, worms and plants in our woodland retreat. We also love to board the bus together for an outing to the farm, The Deep and the museum.

We are happy to work with parents with regards to potty/toilet training and are happy to support you both in any way we can.

We are a registered provider for 2 year old funded places.

If you are looking for a truly exceptional nursery in Hull or the West Hull villages for either now or in the future we would love the opportunity to show you around. Call our manager on 01482 640790 to arrange an appointment.
