A Typical Day
Diverse Learning Environments
Children learn through play all day. At Amanda's Childcare we offer lots of games and activities that will not only be enjoyable and fun to do, but will also educational to allow every child to develop into a confident, and well rounded individual. All activities will be age appropriate, many of them are child-led to encourage individuality and imagination and enjoyed by all of the different age groups. The children are taught the importance of sharing and respecting one another.

All the music chosen are nursery rhyme themes, fireman Sam and songs from frozen, and also classical music. All of the different age groups are encouraged to join in and sing along.
