Our Caterpillar room offers the perfect environment for those children who are spending more time on their feet than the floor, we still follow pre birth to three principles of Respect and Responsive care, holding the Rights of your child at the core of our practice

We provide lots of space to explore and practice walking, climbing and balance, before cuddling up for a nap and then starting all over again.

There is plenty of room to play with friends or on your own, repetition is key to children's neuron development and having access to the garden from this room, encourages children to explore nature and experience the elements.

Building wigwams, arranging log seats, digging and planting will encourage muscle development while designing the kind of house a fairy needs and where it should be, will fire up the imagination. More language development and numeracy experiences are appropriate for this age group and noticing the passage of time is natural when outdoors. The naturalistic learner will have the opportunity to play until it gets dark, then we'll get a torch and carry on playing! Large paint brushes as well as hands and feet will provide even more artistic expression and making music from pots and pans will allow us to discover the musicians or tomorrow.
