Tiggywinkles is the room for children aged from 18 to 28 months
In our toddler room four members of staff look after twelve toddlers from the ages of one to two years. Children of this age are beginning to become interested in being independent and are encouraged to feed themselves and find their own shoes and coats.
The room is equipped with age appropriate toys and activities, such as, building blocks, dressing up clothes, role play resources and heuristic play bags. Messy play is an important part of the creative process at this age and this is reflected in the many opportunities that are planned for this.
An inside play gym and secure outside play area help the children’s rapid physical development at this age and stories, songs and games develop their language. The focus in this room is to have fun with lots of hands on learning experiences.
“My four year old joined Footprints after years at another nursery. She has never been so happy, engaged and stimulated in a childcare environment. She settled in very quickly, which is testament to the warmth of all of the staff. The variety of activities available to the children is fantastic. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough! “
