We pride ourselves on how we prepare our children emotionally, socially and mentally for the next stage in their learning development

Room 1 Caterpillars – 2-3 year olds

All our activities are carefully planned to meet or exceed the learning objectives for each child in line with the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) framework. Each child is assigned a Key Worker who use detailed records and observation to guide each child through their learning journey. As the youngest room we have the advantage of nappy changing facilities in a dedicated alcove and age-appropriate toilet facilities. Our child friendly outdoor space, with soft play surface, separate grassed area and play equipment, provides an engaging learning environment and benefits from step-free access.

The room has it’s own age-appropriate toileting facilities with disabled access) and step free access to our child friendly outdoor space.

Parent & Toddler Group

Each term-time Tuesday and Friday morning we invite parents and their toddlers to come and enjoy creative play time together.  Activities include themed toys, a painting table, a plasticine table,  a baby area, a book corner, a collage table and an outside play area.  At the end of every meeting we all gather together to sing and act out songs and nursery rhymes. Children receive milk or water, toast and fruit while parents share their experiences over tea or coffee.  These mornings serve as an ideal introduction to the playgroup setting and help the children interact with other children, helping prepare them to progress to the older rooms.
