The Caterpillars

Children’s learning in the Caterpillars is a extension of the dragonflies, with an emphasis on developing a more structured environment in readiness to join the pre-school room in the Butterflies. Our knowledgeable team support children to learn and explore the environment by engaging in both free play and planned experiences, that closely follows the children’s interests and experiences.

Whether in the busy ‘small world area’ or the relaxing ‘cosy area’ children can build those all-important secure relationships by sharing a story with their key person or a game with their peers.

The children have fun getting creative in the messy room with cooking sessions and daily craft and sensory experiences.
