The Chessel Centre is home to the Pearl Room and the Ruby Room. The garden here, complete with its own tree house, is the perfect space for the children to run free and explore with their friends, all whilst encouraging their physical development. The Chessel Centre was designed from the ground up, with children in mind, so that they can see and reach everything. The enclosed garden sits in the middle of both rooms, and the bi-fold doors can be opened up onto the garden, allowing free-flow access across the centre.
Child-led play is a major part of our philosophy here at BS3 Community, and our practitioners will set out activities based on what the children have been playing with. The practitioners will then further that play and deepen their learning. Across all of our rooms, the children participate in two small group times each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. This gives our practitioners a formal opportunity to assess the children’s development. The children will also take part in circle time, which is space for a story, singing, or a discussion. More adult-led physical activities, although still informed by the children, take place in each of the rooms too, for example, yoga.
