Butterfly Room

Over 2’s

Our over 2’s room is a large room which has free flow access to resources to provide plenty of room for young children to explore and mix together learning through play. As the children in the room progress, children begin to show an increasing independence and obvious pleasure in moving, communicating and learning through play,

Around the time of babies second birthday we will arrange inductions for the child and parent to make the transition smooth and happy for all into the over 2’s room.

In this room children have a slightly more structured routine to their day whilst learning through a wide range of fun activities and experiences planned for their continued learning and development by their key person who will get to know them really well.

As the children approach the term after their third birthday, children will start a transition period  with a wider focus on specific areas of learning – Literacy, Math’s, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design as well as continuing development in the prime areas.

The pre-school children follow regular activities in small groups that will ensure they are “school-ready” for when they attend reception class at school.  A lot of work and care goes into ensuring that the children are best prepared for the next step of starting school.

We have excellent links with Meadgate School and all the local schools, and lots of transition activities take place throughout the pre-school year and we aim to work closely with you as parents during this important time.
