FUTURE farmers and potential zoo keepers may be in the making at Havering College of Further and Higher Education.

Toddlers at the on-site Ardleigh Green Campus Stepping Stones Day Nursery enjoyed a mobile farm experience...with the added bonus of a few exotic critters.

Warescot Farm in Brentwood brought along sheep, a Shetland pony, ducks, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes, geckos and an African hedgehog to provide a close-up animal encounter.

Stepping Stones Day Nursery manager Emma Wood said: “The mobile farm visit was a great success and really enhanced the learning of our children. They loved being able to stroke the animals and even tried their hand at grooming sheep. One of the chickens laid an egg while it was with us and the children were fascinated by the snakes and lizards.”

The Stepping Stones Day Nursery is located within the grounds of the Ardleigh Green Campus of Havering College and caters for children aged from three months to five years.

Anyone can use the nursery, staff and students of the college as well as members of the general public. The nursery is open 51 weeks of the year.

The staff are very highly qualified, exceeding the requirements as laid down by Ofsted. The nursery has had very good Ofsted inspections and is rated highly by them.

Both individual care and education (via Early Years curriculum) is given to children in an environment that is supportive and developmental.

The nursery has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who takes care of all things for children with additional and special needs.

The baby room is 100% organic and the menu for all children is based on home-cooked, healthy options.
