Cheeky Cherubs Early Years Schools, Bishopstown
We opened our first centre in May 2005, in a converted bungalow with a deceivingly large secure outdoor area. For eight years, we provided a Full Day Care service in this setting for children from six months to school age, following the Cheeky Cherubs curriculum. In the summer of 2013, we made the decision to adapt this environment to create a new vision for early year’s experiences. The children now plan to work and move from one area to the next in an open plan environment without being confined by walls. There is a huge essay writer emphasis on providing opportunities, experiences and stimulating spaces in which the children will grow socially, emotionally and creatively, which in turn will develop their cognitive skills, social and emotional skills and their school readiness. Cheeky Cherubs has won many awards, one of which was for our documentation of our environment and approach to Reggio Emilia in this early years school.

In this setting we have an Infant room and a Wobbler room both of which have pay someone to write my essay their own separate sleep rooms and changing areas. Our Mixed Age Group Environment for our over two children entails a Dramatics Room, Workshop, Atelier and the Outdoors. All our rooms have direct access into our large and inviting Outdoor Area. Following a study visit to Reggio Emilia in Italy in early 2008, we commissioned a number of pieces such as; our miniature kitchens, our light tables and platforms which all add to the uniqueness of Cheeky Cherubs.
In 2012, we built a ‘Passive Classroom’ on site, now transformed into our Atelier This is a very healthy environment for our children and showcases our on-going investment in our service. We are passionate about our environment, a passion which we share with the children who attend Cheeky Cherubs. We have recently been awarded the “Green Flag” for environmental awareness.
