    Activities

    We provide a range of planned and unplanned activities and resources to enable children to investigate and explore both inside and outside. The Badgers enjoy growing vegetables, playing in the mud kitchen and building with large construction. They also enjoy art activities, feeding the horses and losing themselves in role play and small world activities. Through play children develop to their full potential and leave nursery ‘engaged little learners’ ready for school.
     
    The Badgers also enjoy trips to the garden center, the library and to Knaresborough during the Feva festival. Each year we plan a day out for the Badgers leaving for school. We have previously been to the Railway Museum, Meanwood Valley Farm and Tropical World.

      Tyla

      Badgers Room Supervisor

      My name is Tyla and I joined the Red Kite team in January 2019. I am a qualified level 3 nursery practitioner. I have worked with children since 2011 both in a nursery setting and as a Nanny. I like to work with all age groups and like to see how my involvement with the children can help them learn, however I especially like working in Badgers. I get to help them learn and develop and get ready for going to school. In Badgers we love to do all things arty and we are always doing new activities.

      Jade

      Senior Practitioner

      Hi my name is Jade, I am a qualified level 3 Nursery Practitioner. I work as a Senior Practitioner and lead the rooms in the Room Supervisors absence. The children brighten up my day and are always full of surprises as they play, investigate and explore. We like to spend lots of time outside in our big back garden. We like to look for bugs, make dens and grow our own vegetables, and of course we love to get messy in our mud kitchen!

      My name is Nicola. I joined Red Kite in 2018 and I’ve now completed my apprenticeship as a Level 3 practitioner. I wanted a career in childcare after dedicating my life to looking after my children and grandchild. Now I’m excited to learn more and work alongside such a kind and friendly team. I love working in all the rooms, looking after the children each day.  I’m always excited to see what new things the children will do.
