Our toddler room is designed to support the children in the develop of their social and physical skills by encouraging independence and freedom of choice. We also provide plenty of opportunities for our children to explore outdoor play.

Our toddlers have plenty of age appropriate learning resources that promote sharing and group play. Every opportunity will be given to your child to make their own decisions and choices, which will help to develop their own personality.

Throughout the day the children will take part in educational activities designed to teach them basic maths skills, shapes and sizes, colour recognition, language and communication skills. Creative and messy play is also part of the daily routine. 

In pre-school we aim to prepare the children for reception class. We develop their reading and writing skills, and encourage children to write We also play letter and sound games to learn the initial sounds of words and start to segment and blend words.
