At Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Southport, when children leave our Tweenies Room they are welcomed into and enjoy a space in Toddlers that matches their inquisitiveness and energy. The space is filled with well-considered furnishings and learning resources that are accessible to them at all times.

We are passionate about taking care of your Toddlers

With your child’s growing independence their reliance on adults is eased slightly and we ensure that each team member has no more than four children to support at any one time. By doing so we see children at this age and stage thrive.

Toddlers continue to develop with a focus on the three prime areas and are more fully introduced to four more specific areas that support their growing enthusiasm for exploring their world. These:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive art and design.

As our Toddlers go about their play our educators sprinkle texts, books, sounds and numbers around them, promoting your child’s curiosity.

There will always be space and opportunity for them to create their own work and art, being encouraged to have a go themselves inspired by the world around them.

The Toddler zone also benefits from a number of dedicated areas, the Toddlers have creative areas, a reading corner, circle time and a home area corner. As this is the time when the majority of children start ‘toilet training’, the toddlers room is equipped with brightly decorated childrens’ toilets, encouraging independence. The garden is fully equipped with an impact absorbing surface and lots of outside equipment designed to encourage coordination and balance. The children have access to our safe and secure outdoor space to enjoy the benefits of regular time outside where they can enjoy bikes, dens, a mud kitchen and all the outside resources you would expect to see at a nursery. Our Toddler rooms operate with a 1:5 ratio.
