Butterfly Room

Our Butterfly (toddler) Unit, taking children from walking until 2 years depending on development, is fully equipped to aid your child’s learning requirements.

Jo BullenThe beauty of our setting is that we can move children through the nursery depending on their ability. So all the children in a room are of a similar development stage meaning their learning is enhanced. It’s amazing to see how children learn and encourage each other.

Housing a home corner, book corner, arts and crafts area, eating and sleeping area as well as a variety of educational toys, your child will be kept stimulated from the moment they arrive and never be bored! As the children are of similar ages and development stages they also enjoy building friendships that they can carry forward into the Snail and Ladybird (pre-school) room. Once again the staff hold level 2 and 3 qualifications.

Our Butterfly room has proved invaluable in getting the children ready for our Pre-School rooms with staff of both rooms working together to inspire and encourage the children. The rooms also work closely together on planning and termly topics and arts & crafts are a key part to the children’s life at Apple Trees. On viewing the setting you will see numerous display boards full of the children’s colourful and vibrant work. It really is quite refreshing seeing what a child’s imagination holds when they are encouraged to express themselves.

We pride ourselves on working closely with parents and complete a daily journal on your child’s activities so you can feel a part of their day, as well as have valuable information about your child’s sleep pattern and menu choices. This has gained great feedback from parents and carers.

The Butterfly room has direct access onto their very own baby and toddler garden. This is an area separate from the older children where the younger ones can explore and develop without the worry of boisterous ‘bigger kids’. All play equipment has been selected to encourage physical and imaginative play. A wonderful resource for the setting.

The Butterfly’s also have access to the outdoor classroom and the vegetable patch as well as our New mud kitchen so there is never a dull moment and boredom is not a word in our dictionary!
