Toddlers

Our Toddler Rooms take children from about 20mths to 3yrs old, depending on their stage of development. We call our Toddler Rooms ‘The Bumblebees’. The age range in this group is always flexible to meet the needs of the individual children and the nursery as a whole, and staff focus their planning and experiences on each child to ensure that all children’s needs are met.

Our staffing provides a minimum of one adult to every four children, and children flow in small groups between our indoor and outdoor spaces. Activities are purposefully planned to support this inquisitive and flourishing stage of development in a child’s life, supporting all aspects of learning whilst focusing on communication & language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development.

Our Bumblebees children are encouraged to, with support, begin to pour their own drinks, use a range of cutlery and simple tools, be independent and make simple choices. Practitioners develop strong links with children and work with parents when the time is right to begin toilet training.

All of our settings are able to provide places for children who are eligible for the 2yr old funding. If you have received a Golden Ticket or letter confirming eligibility, CONTACT US to arrange a viewing.

Testimonials

Our daughter loves attending Puffins at Mont Le Grand. The staff are all friendly and engage well with her. Since starting (about six months ago) she has developed speech and social skills she would not have been able to at home.
Father at Mont Le Grand – December 2022
We can't recommend them highly enough. All of the staff we have dealt with have been great, and it feels like they enjoy working there. Our son always comes home with a big smile on his face, excited by the day he has had.
Father at Sowton – December 2020
I would 100% recommend, as the manager and staff are just brilliant and really made my little girl comfortable, and relaxed and she's always coming out excited to tell me about her day what she's done and where she's been etc.
