Nursery and Pre-School

Toddler Suite

  • 2 to 3 years
  • Staff to child ratio 1:4

For this age group of children, it is often said that you need eyes in the back of your head as they are ready to demonstrate their determination skills.

Learning through activities

The education for this age group of children is a slow and patient build. We will start the process of learning through circle time activities and sessions using lots of stories and songs and provide a free play environment full of choice that will enhance their development.

We use lots of activities that support concentration and we work very hard to get to know the children so we can use the information for their everyday learning.

Cuddles all-round

The Toddlers within the nursery are still very young so there is always a cuddle to be had, they do love a cuddle.

The speech development of words breaking through at this age is such a delight to the team and the frustration of the toddlers soon lifts when they are understood, and little Characters are showing more and more.

Their own suite and needs

As with every suite within the building the Toddlers have their own area for all their needs. As this age range of children are still either in nappies or potty training it is imperative that we are ready for all stages and by having toilet facilities close by it helps support their needs. Potty training is an exciting and frustrating time for toddlers and parents alike and the nursery will play an imperative role in supporting this stage.

The Routine

As with every age range within the nursery the most important part of the nursery day is the children’s routine. The Toddlers feel a sense of security when they learn the nursery’s routine, especially around food times.
