Welcome to Caterpillars
Caterpillars is our dedicated room for children aged 2-3 and provides an environment where children are happy, comfortable and stimulated. The room is open plan and gives children the freedom to explore independently. It has carpeted areas, cosy areas, wet area and a sensory area too.
Shelves are stocked with a a variety of resources which are carefully selected to support children at this stage of their development. Consideration is also given to providing resources that support the children’s own interests.
The children in Caterpillars spend lots of time outside. They enjoy planting, watering and watching things grow in the garden, using the diggers in the digger area, making marks and drawing in the literacy shed, listening to a story in the cosy area, making mud pies in the mud kitchen and playing on the climbing frame, slide and in the sand pit. Activities are also planned for them in the woodland too.
The children are provided with a healthy snack both mid morning and mid afternoon. Milk and water is also provided.
We have a nappy changing room with a changing table. Parents supply nappies and wipes for their own child.
