Equipment

All our equipment is homologated by the standards required by the Legislation. Our floors, furniture and even the division of spaces, according to ages, is in line with our schedule of activities.

Baby’s rooms

This group is for babies 3 to 12 months old. Although there is a structured routine for eating, sleeping and playing, flexibility is equally important. Every night, each parent will have a written report on how the baby spent the day. Our team interacts and plays with your baby, providing the right kind of stimulus to encourage communication and response. Babies are encouraged to participate in ‘Messy Play’, where they paint and play with sand, and for serious fun we have ‘Jelly Play’, a highly tactile sensory activity which, as well as making baby comfortable, is safe to eat and very, very tasty.

A lot of love and care is a priority at Strawberry Academy and your baby will be surrounded by other children, with activities designed for their age. All we ask is that you provide lots of nappies and a set of replacement clothes. Every day we ask you to bring a bottle ready for the baby as well.

Nursery 1

This group is for children aged 18 to 24 months. As your child gains confidence walking, running, being independent, it is time to enter a new phase. In nursery 1, everything is a bit big – tables, chairs, toys and equipment. A lot of attention is paid to the fact that under two-year-olds have relatively short attention spans and activities are planned so that boredom does not occur. For the children, it’s all a lot of fun! In fact, their day is carefully organized to encourage their development, new skills and confidence. There is always something to do and someone to play with.

Nursery 2

This group is for children from 2 to 3 years old. When they reach the age of two, most children are ready to be introduced into a more structured daily routine. They begin to participate in group activities instead of just playing individually. In nursery 2, the children carry out many of the same activities as before, but they also develop greater confidence. As all parents know, a two-year-old has very clear ideas of what he or she does and does not want to do.

At Strawberry Academy, every opportunity will be given to your child to make their own decisions and choices, which will help them develop their own personality. At this stage, children participate in activities designed to teach them colour recognition, basic skills with numbers and different shapes and sizes.

Classroom

This group is for children from 3 to 5 years old. At this stage, we are focused on promoting learning where the atmosphere is relaxed and children progress at their own pace. The education is informal but carefully planned and structured, following the required guidelines. Building a child’s confidence, self-respect and respect for others is a very important job in the goals of the nursery. Children are taught to express their feelings and natural curiosity about the world and everything in it.

External leisure areas

We try to give children opportunities to explore the climate and outdoor activities. That means that at Strawberry Academy we go out with all kinds of weather.

If the weather is very cold, rainy or very hot, we play inside the nursery but we also have an outdoor space in the back so that the children do not have to be indoors all the time.

This area is mainly used for babies who are not yet mobile. The outdoor environment offers children the opportunity to explore, discover, learn and achieve many things.

The design of the outdoor space follows the same criteria and demands that we always have in our activity.
