Ladybird Room : (Babies and toddlers up to 2 years)



It’s in our ‘Ladybird Room’ that your baby or toddler will learn and develop. Nurtured in a safe, secure inside environment your son or daughter can grow in confidence as they venture on these early stages of their development.

Our under 2’s also have the added benefit of their own outdoor area, a special garden where they can safely play and learn, from digging in the sandpit, to playing peek-a-boo in the house, and as they grow older to start climbing their own little tree!

The Ladybird room children stay in the safety of their room and garden all day and our wonderfully nourishing homecooked food is brought into them at meal times. The room also contains a dedicated sleep area for when your child needs a rest whilst with us.

All of our children follow the EYFS (Early Years foundation Stage). This curriculum supports their development from birth right through to the end of their Reception Year at school.
