Juniors Day Nursery - Cranbrook toddler room picture

From approximately 2 years of age, although this will depend on each individual child’s stage of development, the Toddler room is the hive of activity. Also benefitting from dedicated areas for learning, children will find the home corner being turned daily from building site to doctor’s surgery to hair salon. Sand & Water play areas, cosy book corners, creative and messy play areas, mark making and much more.

We encourage all children to join us for story time and singing and regularly enjoy circle time. As this is the time when many children start potty training, the children have access to potties and toilets and lots of encouragement promoting independence. From the Toddler room the children have ‘free flow’ access to the outdoor play area where at times they can choose to play in or out.

Outdoor play is a large part of nursery life where the children learn to play and share with their friends, burn off some energy with lots of fresh air. Mud is great and sand is even better... All children in the nursery have use of our four amazing garden areas. We have an all weather “Den”, a Sensory garden to dig and plant in, a large Astro Grass area with Tyre bank and huge (2 tons!) sand pit, plus a separate decked area by our SENSORY room.

Staff ratios in this room are 1:4
