This room is for toddlers aged 12 to 30 months (depending on their developmental needs).
The room is set out to enable the children to explore their growing curiosity of the world around them.
Children take part in activities such as painting, drawing, sand and water play, craftwork, cooking, music and nature study to help children to develop and express themselves.
Staff are chosen for this room for their patience and a good understanding of toddlers’ needs and wants.
The ratio in this room is 1 carer to 4 children, but you will see we run it with a ratio of 1-3 as we feel the children need more attention at this age.
All activities are planned around each individual child’s needs, developmental stage and interests. Children at this age are learning at an extraordinary rate and we aim to feed their minds, allow them to explore new things and use their newly developed physical abilities to promote keeping safe and healthy.
All our under 3’s work towards goals set by the Early Years Foundation Stage.
