“Our children are more contented.” This is what staff at Horn End Nursery Rugeley told me after they set up the sleep area with Dream Coracles. “The Dream Coracles enable us to make better use of the space within the room as the children now sleep when they are truly tired,” explains EYP Deborah Barton, the owner. “Children are more content and staff can spend more time supporting play and development.”
“The Dream Coracles are great for our children’s imaginations,” adds Kate Allen, baby room team leader. “On a daily basis they put the dolls to bed and look after them. The coracles have enabled them to develop this role play.”
The Horn End Nursery chain will be switching to Dream Coracles in all their nurseries as a result of its success at Rugeley. They're not alone: Over 400 nurseries across the country are now using Dream Coracles!
Horn End used the Dream Coracle DVD to introduce the concept to parents and staff. Watch the video and request copies here.
