Babies’ Area:

(6 months-2 years) Babies and toddlers have their own bright and cheerful space which provides a safe and tactile environment to develop a baby’s natural curiosity. They are free to crawl, wobble or toddle and play with a variety of toys designed specifically for their age. They enjoy both a stimulating environment and also time for quiet activity. Our crawlers and wobblers are included in circle time with the older children  to promote a sense of belonging and strengthen social interactions.

Toddlers’ Area:  

Children aged 2 years +) In this space the children have plenty of room for independent play. The curriculum adheres to the key principles of Aistear and Siolta where children can learn through enjoying manipulative play, building, reading, dramatic play, arts and crafts etc. We promote sharing, friendship, good manners, helping each other, problem solving and other social skills.

 

 

Sleep room:

Our “Sleep Room” is a quiet and relaxing space for children to wind down and rest under supervision. Procedures and rotas are in place for regularly checking sleeping babies.
