Junior Toddlers

Date: November 20, 2012 Author: Admin Categories: Playrooms

We have a bright colourful playroom opening on to our garden. Our toys and equipment are just right for inside and outside play. To keep things interesting and new we rotate our resources.

Although Wide Eye sits on our shelves he flies down with Little Hoot and all his friends from the Natterjack forest to join us throughout the day. Puppets and pretend play appeal to the fascination of the growing inquisitive minds of our Junior Toddlers. If you want to get messy our place is the place to be! Squeeze paint through closed hands, fill flower pots with compost, sieve sand in our colander, wobble jelly in our sink… Whatever the challenge we’re ready to take it and make it our own.
