We have two lovely spacious rooms well equipped with plenty of space for feeding and sleeping. Dependent on the age ranges we can accommodate up to 16 toddlers across the two rooms looked after by 4 members of staff, with contingency staff and lunch cover. Children have ample room for their creative play in our popular ‘messy room’ Here we have easels for painting and sand, water and sensory play.
Movers, Shakers and Players – At this age, children begin to show an increasing independence and obvious pleasure in moving, communicating and learning through play. Our ‘bigs’ area offers many opportunities for their developmental needs. We also include various other activities such as arts and crafts, heuristic play, music and movement, exploratory areas and plenty of opportunity for free play both indoors and outside.
In terms of organisation, the conservatory room caters for all their messy activities: arts and crafts, sand and water play, cornflower, play dough and many more. It also makes for a quiet sleep area with sleep mats and blankets after lunch.
The other ‘Bigs’ area includes their home corner, book corner and construction play. The children will be able to explore and learn throughout their day without too much pressure of a formal environment. They have free access into the garden which provides them with an outdoor extension to their indoor activities. At this age also, some children will be experiencing the change from nappies to potties and toilets. Whatever the challenge, you can be assured that our staff are well trained and committed.
