Tigers

“Tigers” are our Toddler Units, meeting the needs of children learning to explore their world. Our emphasis here is on learning through play and to this end we offer soft play areas, musical instruments, singing and stories, painting and creative activities, dough, construction equipment, bricks and blocks, slides, tents and tunnels, bats and balls.

The children are encouraged to share and develop respect for each other. This encouragement continues when they move to the next area.

A comfortable, welcoming space

Children eat in their classroom and sit round tables together on small chairs; they use spoons and are encouraged to feed themselves with staff always nearby to lend them a helping hand. Table manners are also encouraged with Makaton signs for please and thank you which the children learn to understand and repeat.

Children rest throughout the day as and when they require it. Most children sleep on beds with their own sheet and blanket. Other children sleep outdoors on their parents request in their own pushchairs under the sheltered outdoor sleeping area.

Toddlers!

The area covers children aged from walking through to two years of age. It is a lively and bright and full of fun and activity. Children take part in many activities throughout the day such as painting, sand, water, role play, construction, corn flour and water, shaving foam, soil, small world toys, cardboard box play, tents and tunnels. They love music and movement, song time and musical instrument sessions! Stories are told by staff each day with the use of puppets and props to make them more interesting and entertaining, to hold their attention whilst developing their concentration skills.

Children spend as much time as possible outside. The children benefit from having access to a huge outdoor play area surrounded by fields. Staff involve the children in many activities outdoors such as balancing along a wide beam, taking part in small obstacle courses, helping children to crawl over and under objects and through tunnels. Children also go on nature walks inside the grounds so they learn to appreciate and recognise features of their natural environment. They enjoy small climbing frames, slides, coup cars, bean bags and balls.
