Tweenies & Toddlers Environment (Explorers)

The Toddler Room is a playground fit for any young explorer! By this age your child will be eager to engage with the surrounding world, so it is important that there is plenty of opportunity for them to do so. With a grand play gym from Community Playthings as the center piece for the room, there will also be a wet play area, role-play area, creative/arts area and plenty of table top space for group activities.

In the toddlers environment there is a greater emphasis on independence, so children are encouraged to wash their hands by themselves and have access to a low level sink with thermal regulated taps. In the toddler rooms, a wealth of resources, covering all the areas of the EYFS and at toddler height give your child endless opportunities to explore, find out about what they like and start developing their passions. Of course, if that all sounds a little too hectic there is also a cosy/book shelter for children to get warm and comfortable, sit and read, or rest and sleep.

The kitchen area features an open plan children’s cooking counter, allowing for your child to observe the culinary interests of the kitchen from a safe distance. This encourages children to learn about cooking and the organic ingredients used to prepare their fresh meals. Participation in adult lead cooking activities also allows your child to experience ingredients and techniques of preparing and cooking food for themselves, at their level.
