 Butterfly Babies

We offer a natural, calm look to our environment, with lots of loose part play enabling babies to explore a variety of objects that begin to spark their imagination and curiosity. The Butterfly Babies are the youngest children in our setting. They have lots of fun activities to do! There is plenty of space for little ones to sit, roll, crawl, lie and toddle. Resources are down on the child’s level so they can begin to make their own choices in their activities, as well as also providing areas to begin pulling themselves up and cruise, before taking those independent first steps. The Aunties in this room develop activities around children’s level of development and interests. They offer lots of sensory activities such as food play, gloop, water, treasure baskets and much more. Our babies also have their own separate garden as an extension of the main room offering further investigation of the environment around them.

Little Ladybirds


The Little Ladybirds are our babies that have become confident walkers and are ready to explore and learn a lot more! They are aged between 1-2 years. The staff offer lots of different activities to challenge their curiosity, creativeness and growing need to explore! All resources are down at the children's level, where they can self select toys to aid their play. This room again has a natural look to it, with lots of ladybird themes throughout! Our little ladybirds again have access to their own garden area as an extension of their main room. as well as a developing sensory/ vegetable garden to explore and learn about changes in their environment. 


Growing Grasshoppers

 Our Growing Grasshoppers are aged between 2-3 year olds. Their room is set over two rooms, the messy room and the main room. There is so much to do! There is space to play on the rugs and carpets, and space to be messy and begin to make marks using paints, pencils and pens. There is space to explore our physical skills outside and tables and chairs to develop our balance and give us a working space at a table. Toys are down are down on child-level so that our Crawling Caterpillars can practice making their own choices in their play. Our toddlers may begin to potty train within this room having access to their own bathroom area and with handwashing facilities to promote independance.
