When children reach their first birthday they move into the Butterflies room. This large, spacious environment provides opportunities for toddlers to be creative and messy as well as develop their physical skills as they start to climb, walk and run! As our toddlers gain more confidence with walking and talking, they are encouraged to become a little more independent. Daily access to the nursery garden is provided in all weathers. Children also experience short walks within the local community – to the park, library and shops.
A strong focus in Butterflies room is supporting children’s communication and language development. With this in mind, the staff provide language rich, play-based curriculum which includes lots of opportunities for children to sing, chat, share stories together and copy sounds.
