Kindergarten pods

At Young Friends Kindergarten we’re lucky enough to have our home in a lovely house in Hove, East Sussex.

Both of our family groupings operate as a kindergarten pod, each with its own space. We have two kindergarten pods, one for birth to two year olds and one for two years to school age.

Both environments are set up to provide spacious play and learning spaces, cloakrooms and sleeping areas, and are equipped with changing and toilet facilities, sinks, and plenty of storage for all the loose parts and open-ended equipment.

A loose parts nursery

As we’re a loose parts nursery, you won’t find any pre-determined toys in our nursery rooms. Instead, we take the approach that one person’s trash is another’s treasure – so our rooms are well stocked with an array of bits and pieces that will spark your child’s creativity and build their confidence as they explore. Everything is, of course, safe for little fingers, and sustainably sourced, re-used and re-cycled.

Young children

For very young children, it may of course be the first time they’ve spent any great length of time away from their family. We understand that this is an important transition, and having a familiar room as well as a place in a family group at kindergarten is important in helping them feel safe and secure.
