Welcome to 

The Caterpillar Class

Our youngest children have a great safe space to explore and gain confidence whilst experiencing, for some of them, their first time being separated from their parents. We concentrate on the children's physical development along with speech and language acquisition, introducing lots of new vocabulary in a fun and interesting way for the children. We love singing, dancing and always sing lots of nursery rhymes.  The experienced and friendly staff make this experience fun and exciting for the children. They learn how to become independent and make great new friendships on the way. The children take part in lots of transition activities and spend plenty of time with the other children in Nursery. The Caterpillar Class is a great introduction to the Nursery and the children are full of confidence when they move into the Nursery at 3 years old.  

Open door policy - staff are approachable, helpful and friendly
