Toddlers are keen to explore the world around them, and our large, light room encourages the children to enjoy exploring their senses through movement and mobility; with soft play and gym house on a large carpeted area.
Staff organise many creative projects including music and cookery. There is a large space for sand, water, painting and malleable activities available daily. Additionally at this stage children are developing their imagination and love the dressing –up area, home corner and book area for quieter moments.
As the children are young and many become tired after lunch they are able to sleep on individual beds.
Busy Bees also have their own outdoor space.
