The Baby Room cares for Children from six weeks to one year of age. Between the ages
of one and two years Children move to the Tweenies before progressing to the Teddy
Bears looking after two to three year-olds. The Rainbow Room is for pre -
School Children from three to five years. Finally Bigger Bobbles is situated on
the first floor of the Nursery and offers facilities for Children aged
between five and eleven years. All rooms, as well as front and rear
entrances, have security coded locks and the Nursery has CCTV
throughout the building.
The Nursery also has four outside play areas. Outside
play is a very important part of the Nursery day.
Being outdoors has a positive impact on a Child's
sense of well - being and helps all aspects of their
development, offering opportunities to do things
in different ways and on a different scale than
when indoors. The outdoor environment gives
Children freedom to explore, use their senses, be
physically active and exuberant gaining first hand
contact with the weather, changing seasons and the
natural world around them.
Choosing the right setting for your Child is a difficult decision
for any Parent to make and it is important that your Child not only
feels safe and secure but that the setting gives them the ability to
develop positively as individuals. Our philosophy includes providing
Children in our care with a varied healthy diet (Bobbles has achieved a
National Healthy Eating Award) plenty of fresh air, exercise and most
importantly, to provide them with stimulating materials which will give
them the opportunity to develop at their own pace helping them to learn
the new skills that will be so important when they start at School. We
work in close partnership with Parents and Carers to ensure that every
Child is given the best opportunity to develop, providing a tailored
learning journey for all ages.
Bobbles has been an established OFSTED registered
Childcare provision in the Fenton area of Stoke on Trent
since 1991. The Nursery cares for Children ranging from six weeks to five years of age as well as being able to offer a Before and After School and holiday club facility for Children up to the age of eleven.

We believe a Nursery education gives Children a great start in life, not
just in their ability to learn but also in the practise of developing relationships
both with adults and the other Children around them. We also believe that play should be freely
chosen by the Children and be under the control of the Child in a safe, caring and nurtured setting, knowing
how and when to seek help. Play encourages a Child's willingness to explore, experiment and try new things
enabling Children to be inventive, to create problems and find solutions. Play engages Childrens bodies, minds
and emotions. Through play, Children will learn to interact with others, experience and manage feelings, to be
in control and confident about themselves and their own abilities developing a "can do" orientation to learning.
