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, much like the Ruby Room and the Raleigh Room the children are encouraged to increase their independence to prepare them for the next stages of their lives at primary school. 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 sensory room, 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.

June 2024

Stackpool Room have packed lots of fun and excitement into June. The children got stuck into making an ice cream shop in our room. They helped to create the ice cream menu board and came up with the prices. They have loved playing in our ice cream parlour and have had lots of fun popping in to buy themselves an ice pop to enjoy in the sun!

Our friends have been super interested in our veggie patch and observing the different plants as they change and grow. “Some have got bigger” noticed Ted. Finally, some of the flowering plants have started to grow produce, so we took a trip to the garden and helped to harvest the sugar snap peas and yellow courgette that were ready to be picked.



May 2024

This month, in Stackpool Room, our focus has been on nature, growth and change. We have been very creative and had lots of fun creating bugs using different media. The children went on a bug hunt in the garden and helped plant and water the new veggie patch. They have been learning to pinch out the tomatoes and how to keep the plants happy. Teddy was excited to show off his writing skills and we were all very impressed! 🙂


April 2024

Stackpool Room have been super busy this month with lots of WOW moments. The children celebrated St George’s day and we shared stories about dragons. Knights and princesses. They were very interested in knights and dragons acting out stories with puppets and designing their own shields.

We turned our role play area into a doctor’s surgery and have even created our very own X-ray lamp to look at the bumps and breaks clearly. The children were very excited to have a special visitor in the garden – Mr Fox. We have spoken a lot about wild life as a result and they have loved building houses for the 3 little pigs – inspired by our NELI story of the week!!!
