The children in the toddlers room are encouraged to explore their environment with an excellent range of activities on offer daily. They have access to outdoor play facilities daily and can play alongside their friends in a safe and stimulating area.
The children are given lots of help and reassurance when they start toilet training and we work closely with our parents at this important stage to make it as smooth as possible. Each toddler room has their own bathroom to aid with toilet training.
The children are encouraged to be independent at meal times.
We are able to offer 15 hours of Free Early Education and Care (FEEC) to eligible two year old children. Information on the eligibility criteria is available from your health visitor from nursery or by visiting Kirklees Parent portal.
All our nurseries undertake the statutory 2 year old progress checks. This check provides the parents/carers with a short written summary of their child’s development in the prime areas. This check identifies the child’s strengths and any areas where the child’s progress is less than expected.
We ask parents to share their health visitors 2 year old check with the nursery in order to help us plan for their child's development.
For children aged between 2 and 3 years we provide a staff to child ratio of 1:4
