Elan Out of School Club - the Minibus

“I just wanted to say how impressed we are with the play opportunities both boys get, particularly Luca at The Den who has really enjoyed going to the meadow in his wellies/armed with his torch to spot wildlife in the dark, the woodwork, arts, baking, use of the computer, the trips to Sleepy Hollow."

“After Dylan's first day in The Den he said ‘Mummy it was great. Why can't I go every day?’"

Sam

"Rory begs us most days to be allowed to go to The Den (distraught when he sees the mini bus and realises Den happens on days he is not there). We had been told it would become the most beloved part of the week and that does appear to be true. Am very impressed with range of activities Rory tells me about and use of minibus. Many thanks and congratulations to all the staff."

About us

The Den

The Den at Elan Nursery offers a fun, stimulating and secure environment for children attending Steyning & Upper Beeding Primary schools. Our qualified staff actively promote the Playwork Principles which recognise that children’s learning and experiences are enhanced if they are given access to a wide range of opportunities with the children freely choosing a variety of play opportunities. Resources, including arts & crafts, their own ICT area (which includes computers, a Wii, DVD player and karaoke machine), their own homework room, numerous board games & construction activities are accessible at all times. The children can also access our large garden, natural meadow and enjoy frequent trips out on our mini-bus to the local parks and woodland. 

Plus the children all get a home cooked meal at tea time that is health and nutritious and there is a fully stocked fruit bowl for snacking at all times.
