How We Learn

How we learn

At Wise Owls we believe that children of different ages learn from each other.  With this in mind, the majority of our free flow time allows children aged 2-5 to access the same learning environment. 

Our Squirrels, aged between 9 and 24 months, have a space designed especially for them but this doesn’t detract from them exploring the free flow space with their keyworkers during the sessions.  Our staff are keen to encourage connections between children of all ages. 

We do, however, organise age appropriate group times when Squirrels, Hedgehogs (2-3) and Bluebirds (3-5) come together during the sessions. The Staff plan, using the EYFS, to extend the children’s learning and tailor each next step to the individual child’s needs.

Our Hive

Wise Owls is very privileged to have our very own Artist in Residence Anita Bernacka.  Anita has set up The Hive to become a living, breathing artist studio that  the children can access on a daily basis.  Anita is very interested in light, colour and storytelling and combines creative art journeys and early science experiments to stimulate and nurture the natural curiosity of the children.  These experiences are available for ALL children to explore throughout the sessions and the Squirrels (12-24 months) also get an opportunity to access this learning environment.
