The Southville Centre is home to Beauley Room, Leighton Room, Stackpool Room and Raleigh Room. The vast garden at the Southville Centre is a great space to encourage physical development, whether that is climbing the tree, exploring water, scooting around, or using the mud kitchen.

“The outdoor spaces offer the perfect learning environment for our little ones to become excellent at managing risk; we love to see our children’s confidence grow as they play and explore.”


Child-led play is a major part of our philosophy here at BS3 Community, and our practitioners will set up 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 regular small group times, which gives our practitioners the opportunity to really get to know each child. Our key people plan these sessions carefully to support the children’s individual development. They select elements that have sparked the children’s interest which helps to gain their attention and maintain engagement.

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, cooking and lots of creative exploration.
