Our baby unit welcomes babies aged from 3 months up until the age of two. We make every effort to ensure individual routines and requirements are followed; this is supported during our settling in process where we offer a home visit and two 2-hour settling in sessions for your child.
Our Pre-School room is led by our Deputy Manager Laura Pugh. Laura has her Level 6 degree and holds her EYITT, she has over 7 years experience working within the early years sector. Our Pre-School room can care for a maximum of 24 children at any time, with the children splitting their time between the main room, conservatory and outdoor areas. We encourage free-flow for large parts of our day and have a balance between adult and child initiated activities for our children to enjoy.
Curious Caterpillars has it’s own onsite Forest School Area. Each year our ‘school leaving year’ will take part in a six week block of Forest School sessions. These sessions will be held both onsite and offsite. Within our own Forest School area, our Forest School Leader Georgie is able to teach the children new skills such as wood carving, sawing and learning about nature in a safe and secure environment whilst still supporting the Forest School ethos. During our offsite sessions the children have access to a larger forest to promote exploration and discovery.
