The Ruby Room has space for 30 of our older children aged 3 plus, all year round. The children in Ruby Room follow a great schedule which gives them all the opportunities to learn and have fun. Much like the Stackpool Room and the Raleigh Room at the Southville Centre, the children in the Ruby Room are encouraged by the practitioners to increase their independence in preparation for their journey to school. During group meal times, the children are encouraged to serve their own food and pour their own drinks. Throughout the room, there are plenty of activities and resources for the children to explore, including musical instruments and a creative area.

November 2021

This month in the Ruby room we have been celebrating Remembrance Day with face painting and finger painting poppies. We have also done some nocturnal and diurnal animal sorting, looking at which animals will hibernate for winter, as well as looking ahead by planting daffodil bulbs ready for spring. The children have also enjoyed playing some games of snakes and ladders with Lynn and learning to turn take.


October 2021

This month, we introduced to the children our new and very exciting Bee-Bot! The Bee-Bot will be used during small group time activities to teach the children directional language and basic coding algorithms. We also went to the fruit and veg shop and chose some vegetables, which we made into Harvest soup and smoothies.
