Roos

16 Months - 2 Years Old
  • As your baby grows and becomes more mobile, it’s time for them to move up into the Roos room.  This room has ample space for new walkers to get plenty of practice!  Having toys accessible for the children to help themselves gives them the freedom to make choices and develop their own interests.

    We have a ratio of 1:3 and being a larger room we can have up to 12 Roo’s in one session. With a large open outdoor area, there’s lots of room for the Roos to explore and with their waterproofs and wellies they can experience the great outdoors in all weathers!

  • Roos' Daily Routine

    Within the Roos’ area there are plenty of activities both free and planned that give opportunities for toddlers to be active and take part in imaginative and constructive play.  We aim to develop the individual personality of each child, building their confidence and self-esteem with a fun and exciting environment that boosts plenty of learning opportunities.  Below is an outline of our daily routine.

  • Bouncy Music

    Once a week we hold our bouncy music sessions led by Joe from Little Wing music

    Joe brings along his acoustic or electric guitar or even his tank drum as well as a selection of instruments for the children to experiment with and play along with him as he sings a mix of well known songs and rhymes. Each group has a 20 minute session held on Wednesday mornings.
