The Toddler Room is for children from the age of approx. 12 months to approx. 2 years. There is a maximum of 15 children with a minimum 3:1 children to adult ratio. This is a large, bright and colourful room with access directly into the dedicated Babies/Toddler outdoor play area. As children begin to gain confidence they begin to explore further and can participate in a wide range of educational and fun activities. Activities, which are planned in advance, include colouring, sticking, painting, singing, stories and messy play. Children go outdoors to play daily in our specially designed garden.
The Toddler room also has a separate ‘Sensory’ room. This is used for small group activities and provides a quieter opportunity to develop their concentration skills and relax in a calm and comforting environment.
The Early Years Foundation Stage framework is used to plan for children’s individual development and next steps. All children have a ‘Learning Journal’ detailing this with lots of lovely photographs showing your child enjoying their time at nursery.
