Cabin group

Older toddlers from about 24 months to 2.5 years*


This group caters for older toddlers and is based in the purpose built Portakabin unit.

Domestic activities, such as dressing up, role play and puppetry help to develop language and communication skills.

Outdoor activities

Indoor activities are extended to outside with the extra stimulation of experiencing all weather conditions

Meal times

Mealtimes are a social time when we sit together with the chance to explore a varied and culturally based menu

Sensory play in Cabin

Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses. It does this through touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing.

For this reason we think it is so important to give different opportunities every day to the individual child.
This extends their learning, helping them to make connections and develop their brains (cognitive) which helps them with language, extend their creativity into later life.
This is a very important first step to be able to continuously develop skills for more complex tasks later in life literacy, numeracy ,knowledge and understanding (science) etc…..

Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child. It is essential for all children to learn how their bodies work, and how to process and interpret the world around them.
At this stage of their learning we appreciate the value of all the the little things even the ones that cannot be measured. ‘Appreciate the value of process over outcome’
