From approximately 2 years of age, although this will depend on each individual child’s stage of development, the Toddler room also based on the first floor is the hive of activity. Also benefitting from dedicated areas for learning, children will find the home corner being turned daily from building site to doctor’s surgery to hair salon. Sand & Water play areas, cosy book corners, creative and messy play areas, mark making and much more. We encourage all children to join us for story time and singing and regularly enjoy circle time. As this is the time when many children start potty training, the children have access to potties and toilets and lots of encouragement promoting independence. Outdoor play is a large part of nursery life where the children learn to play and share with their friends, burn off some energy with lots of fresh air. Mud is great and sand is even better... All children in the nursery have use of our unique indoor/outdoor play area with large sand pit, planting areas, climbing, slide, role play plus much more. It really does need to be seen to be believed! Regular outings to Tonbridge Park are part of nursery life too.
