  • the cloakroom with baskets for shoes under benches and pegs at child height
  • an illustration of a woodpecker and butterfly decorates the inside of a cube shelf
  • the classroom with large windows from the floor, wicker basket chairs and cushions. three round tables with chairs, a wicker nook and sand and water play units.
  • a home corner with play kitchen is accessed through a little archway, outside of the partitioned area are lots of blocks for construction. A branch hangs on the wall
  • the cozy seating area looks like a living room with an adult rocking chair, sofa, floor cushions and three circular rugs

The nursery is bright with natural light from large windows. The rooms are decorated in natural wooden colours for the flooring, tables, chairs and storage units. The decoration takes inspiration from nature such as decorative branches, plants and illustrations of wildlife.

Furnishings like rocking chairs, sofas, cushions and rugs make the nursery look and feel homely so that the children are relaxed and happy.

The design of the nursery spaces is centred around the children. This shows in features such as the floor to ceiling glazing so the children can see outside and the display boards and storage that are low down and easily accessed by the children.
