The room is split between a carpeted and messy area, with the emphasis on learning through play.
The room is for children aged 3 months to 2 years.
Acorn Room caters for up to 24 children on a ratio of 1:3. The room is designed to encourage the children to develop at their own pace in a warm, stimulating environment.
The room has a designated area for the younger non-mobile children which provides them with the opportunity to explore their environment in a calm, safe space. Treasure baskets provide a range of sensory stimuli and low level furniture is the perfect height for children to pull themselves up on, in preparation for those first steps.
Acorn Room has a low level window overlooking the garden, enabling the children to have a constant view of the ever changing environment. The room has direct access to the outdoor environment and with their own designated space the babies are free to roll, crawl and toddle in their attempts to explore and learn about the world around them.
Special low level sand and water trays, along with a floor based easel provide extra sensory experiences, whilst the role play area builds on their ever developing social skills and their desire to imitate.
Book corners and a cosy hideaway cube provide opportunities for rest, relaxation and quiet time.
The interactive screen promotes children's understanding of information technology with carefully selected programs that support each of the developmental areas.
An adjoined sleep room, a milk preparation kitchen and nappy change are additional features of this room.
