Squirrels 2-3 yrs
Our Squirrels Room caters for up to twenty children who will normally move into this room around the age of two. As each child’s development varies dramatically, children only move into and out of Squirrels when you feel they are ready, and through discussions with your child’s key person. We have a ratio of one practitioner to four Squirrels for all children over 24 months, and for children between three and three and a half this is increased to one practitioner to every 6 children.
In this room a small amount of structure is introduced into the daily routine, with play activities based around interesting and imaginative topics. At this age everything becomes more exciting and fascinating for your toddler who will take great delight in every new discovery and accomplishment, and become intensely curious and very energetic. We have a messy area for activities including painting and water play, a quiet corner for stories or naps, indoor and outdoor areas for physical and imaginative play, and constructive activities.
Toddlers eat their snacks and meals with practitioners in the play room. We cater for all dietary requirements, so please speak to us about your child’s needs.
Children have access to our two garden areas which are supervised at all times, and include a covered decking area and climbing frame. Our gardens are designed to give children new experiences and encourage them to enjoy the outdoors in all weathers.
