Toddlers (2 – 3 years)

Our toddler room is bright and spacious and accommodates 20 children aged 2 to 3 years. Our children are encouraged to develop their personal, social and self help skills. There is an adjoining nappy room and bathroom as well as a large outdoor play area shared with pre school. During their time in the toddlers your child may begin toilet training; we will work alongside you and help you in any way possible.

Throughout the day every child will access at least one Key Family session where we take part in ‘looking & listening’ sessions, ‘Let’s Talk’ activities, play games and read stories with our key family indoors or outdoors.

(Nappies are changed when required throughout the day as well as at our nappy changing times. We ask that parents provide nappies wipes and creams)
The age restrictions on our three groups are only guidelines and can be flexible. If we feel your child is ready and would benefit from moving into the next group then through consultation with yourselves and availability we will do so.
