Caterpillar Room

What to expect when you first visit our Caterpillar room:
From around one year to three years.
This room has a large play area, toilets and changing area with a purpose built sleep room, which can also be used for quieter activities, offering fun and enjoyable activities, which are on offer throughout the day.

The Environment
Large homely room with an extensive carpeted play area and a linoleum area for messy play and meal times. The room is very colourful with children's art work and photographs displayed on the walls. There is a sleep room area within the room for children to sleep or rest throughout the day.

The Caterpillar Team

There will be staff members in all the different areas of the play room, engaging with the children with a variety of experiences and opportunities to explore. Each child gets their own key worker who is responsible for supporting them and their development.

Our Daily Routine
The routine within the Caterpillar room is extremely flexible. We aim to follow children's own routines from home and experiences and activities, free play, snacks around this.  
Snack time is also on a free basis so play continues throughout the session and children can eat at a time that suits them. all children generally sit with staff at lunch time as we feel this is a social time for children.
Parent/Carer packs are issued for each new topic so you can join in the fun at home and know exactly what we are doing.

"Children seen duriing the inspection were confident, happy and settled. The staff worked very well as a team providing caring individual support to the children"
