About the employer

Moon River Bishopston Bristol provides a home from home feel for children 3 months to 5 years in a safe and comforting environment. Moon River Nursery is influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach, which means that children are seen as curious individuals who can lead their learning through their interests. The environment, the practitioner and the family all have a vital part to play in supporting the children’s growth.  The lovely baby room caters for children from the age of 3 months to just before 2 years of age, depending on their readiness to move to the toddler room. The room is light and airy, with the emphasis on providing lots of play, love and affection and there is a separate, tranquil sleeping room for  babies to sleep peacefully during the day. The toddler room offers a fun filled day with a range of opportunities for children to be creative and take part in imaginative and constructive play. This inviting and enabling room will provide opportunities to explore sand and water, creative and messy play, construction, heuristic play and music. Potty training normally takes place within this age group and staff will work closely with children to support your child with this phase. As with the babies, toddlers will have plenty of opportunity to play in the wonderful outdoor play areas. Pre-school room offers a variety of activities to support early education and prepare for school.  The setting will provide activities which enable important social development and individual learning that encourage children to work together as well as think critically and question the world around them. The children in this room will be developing basic numeracy and literacy skills through tailored fun activities. The pre-school children will have lots of opportunity to enjoy the wonderful outdoor space.
