RAFAKidz: Boscombe Down

Our Rooms

Our two rooms at RAFAKidz Boscombe Down are designed to meet the specific needs of babies and children.

Each of our rooms is led by a senior nursery practitioner and they are supported by an experienced and qualified team.

When it’s time to move into the next room, we’ll make sure your child has a smooth and comfortable transition. We’ll take the time to slowly introduce them to their new friends, environment and dedicated key person and we’ll work with you every step of the way.

Baby rooms

Designed for little ones to enjoy from the age of four months until they are two years old. We work to a ratio of three children to one staff member for our children who are under two-years old and we ensure your baby has regular interaction with their dedicated key person.

Our baby rooms are cheerful and stimulating. At this young age, your child’s development is focused on their immediate sensory experiences, and our baby rooms invite them to explore a wonderful world of enticing colours, shapes and textures.

We understand your baby’s routine is integral to their happiness and stability, and we’ll work closely with you to ensure we follow your routine. We believe in creating a caring and loving environment, a real home from home.

Pre-school rooms

From two years old to school start, your child will be transitioned into one of our pre-school rooms, where there will be a mixture of free play and structured learning. Now that they have gained more independence, we work to a maximum of eight children to one member of staff.

Children in the pre-school rooms are provided with lots of challenging experiences across all the seven areas of learning. They are able to access resources which can be used in so many different ways and which foster their creativity and problem–solving skills. They will also become increasingly independent in their learning and able to look after their own personal care needs.

The children love being outside and get involved in gardening projects as well as challenging their physical skills as they play and explore our outside spaces. By the time children leave us for school they will be well prepared with the skills they need to make their transition smoother and their continued learning successful.
