Overview of our play rooms

We have:

Starlings, these are our non mobile children whose ages range from 8 weeks to 12 months.

Ducklings ,who are waddling but not quite ready for the next challenges with ages ranging from 10 months+

Sparrows, who are eager to explore their surroundings and try pushing the boundaries. Children are moved into the Sparrows from approximately 18 months depending on their ability. 
They are in this playroom until they are 2 years old and during this time the staff prepare them for the next stage of their learning journey.

Red Robins, are our 2 to 3 year olds - here they are toddlers and their speech explodes. Parents look for the on/off switch as they babble/talk non stop.
This room, in partnership with the parents/carers take on the task of toilet training so that they are dry in readiness to go through to our pre school class who are known as the Ravens.

The Ravens follow a much more structured day as this is the play room before going to 'big school'. The children are encouraged to be independant in every day tasks, putting on their coats, personal hygeine etc.,

 Our aim is to provide children of all ages with the skills and resources required to reach their full potential at all times.
