Welcome to our Toddler Room!
As you can imagine, our toddler room is where our little ones start to gain awareness and confidence to explore the world around them.
As all parents will know, at this age, toddlers are into everything! And so we make it our mission to create a safe but fun filled environment, where they can investigate new textures, sounds, smells, sights and tastes.
It’s also where most of them will learn to crawl, walk, climb and run. So there’s lots of support and encouragement to help improve their balance and general gross motor skills.
And plenty of hugs for any little ones who find it all too much.
What’s the ratio of staff to toddlers?
We have children between the ages of 18 and 30 months in the Toddler Room.
The room has a maximum of 12 children and there is a minimum staff to child ratio of 1:3.
What is the Toddler Room like inside?
Our Toddler Room is a large, bright and welcoming space with continuous access to our large outdoor decking area.
We also offer a separate sleeping room for any after lunch naps – or any time that fits in with your toddler’s individual routine.
What will my child do in the Toddler Room?
A typical day in the Toddler Room is a healthy mixture of free and unstructured play alongside lots of small group games designed to develop sharing and social communication skills.
We also provide a wide range of physical activities to ensure all toddlers are challenged to develop their problem solving skills and abilities.
Our Toddler Room is staffed with experienced team members who each have numerous inspiring and imaginative ways to engage and involve the toddlers in stimulating activities such as messy play, cooking and creative activities.
Can you help us with potty training in the Toddler Room?
Absolutely! We recognise that children learn at different rates and some are keen to get out of nappies much earlier than others.
Some children may also bypass the potty stage altogether, preferring to go straight for the toilet.
Our toilets and sinks are all toddler sized and we are careful to reinforce the importance of effective hand washing too.
Whatever the situation for your child, we first and foremost consider them an individual and will work closely with you to encourage them in the most appropriate way possible.
What is provided in the Toddler Room?
Castle Lane provides all your toddler’s food along with nappy wipes and creams.
All you need to supply is a change of clothes and nappies.
