The Stackpool Room has up to 30 children aged 3 – 4, all year round. This room is for our older children, and this is reflected in the spaces that they have which can be used for exploring, playing, and learning.

In the Stackpool Room, our practitioners encourage increased independence, in preparation for when they leave us for school. There is more of an emphasis on routine, and the children enjoy this being visually represented up on the wall. More adult lead physical activities, although still informed by the children, take place too, including yoga, and meditation.

The cosy library area, dotted with blankets and cushions, is a peaceful space where children can read stories individually or as a group, or simply just to have some down time. The creative room is separate from the main room, giving plenty of opportunity to really get stuck in and make a mess! Here the children enjoy painting, creating, and exploring sensory play.  We also have a corner dedicated to imagination and encouraging our children to explore theirs. This free-flowing room has the children’s interests at heart, and they have lots of fun whilst they learn.

November 2023

We have had a month of celebrations in Stackpool Room. For Remembrance Day, Vickie brought her Grandad’s medals in to show the children. We then created our own Poppys on the window using paint. The children have also celebrated Diwali by painting on their hands to represent henna and by making little tea light lamps out of clay.

October 2023

In Stackpool Room, we have been busy collecting our Harvest donations to share with the community. We have been getting creative and using out fine motor skills making pizza with playdough and pushing bits in to add details.

Some of the children were lucky enough to pop out to North Street with us to help choose and collect some pumpkins for our Halloween celebrations.

September 2023

In Stackpool Room, we have been spending lots of time outside in nature. The children have been looking at the leaves in the garden and talking about how they will change throughout Autumn and discussing the colours of them. After collecting our leaves, we spent time in the creative area carefully painting and printing with them to create some wonderful artwork.
