Toddlers

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.

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.
