Pre-Toddler Room (12 months – 24 months)

Your child is developing very quickly, is inquisitive and is always learning. We do everything we can to help them reach their full potential.

The Pre-Toddler rooms are large, open-plan areas that give your child the space they need while they are finding their feet, but with a staff:child ration of 1:3, you can be assured that the children always have the close supervision they need.

There are plenty of high quality and robust age-appropriate toys that give them every opportunity to explore and learn in a secure, home-from-home environment.

The highly qualified staff working in our Pre-Toddler rooms know how to maximise every child’s time at nursery and will always encourage them to take part in a wide variety of activities, including creative, messy and role play, imaginative and small world play.

In the messy areas, children enjoy a range of fun activities, including painting, creating collages, drawing and even playing with baked beans, while our soft play areas offer the opportunity to play with cuddly toys, cushions, fabrics and drapes. The exploration zone is also very popular with the toddlers who love to construct and explore.

Messy tubs, which are full of toys and fun activities, allow children to enjoy independent play and they also have the opportunity to enjoy quieter pastimes with a book or jigsaw.

Through play, we encourage independent learning and help to develop children’s social skills by giving them enough space to explore and the support they need to try new things. Our personalised approach means children only undertake activities that are appropriate for their stage of learning and development.

When they need a rest or sleep, they can go to the snugly area and lie on sleeping mats, where there is always a member of staff to watch over them.

As the Pre-Toddler rooms have easy access to our large, enclosed garden, children can enjoy lots of supervised fun outside, whatever the weather.

So you don’t miss out, you will receive a daily report card that will outline exactly what activities they have taken part in and what they have had to eat and drink during their stay at Boys & Girls Nursery.

You will soon see that there’s always lots of fun to be had in our Pre-Toddler rooms!
