Monkey Playroom - for children aged from 24 to 36 months
The Monkey Playroom occupies the whole of the middle of the ground floor of the main house and is lovely, light and airy with the double doors leading to the patio and garden whilst at the other end the large bay window looks over the front drive, with the cars and deliveries coming and going.
The minimum staff ratio here is one adult to four children.
The Room Supervisor is Toni (who previusly worked with us as a room supervisor in the under 2's room) and she is supported by her great team, here they are all very adept at staying one step ahead of these bright and lively children, keeping them engaged with a wide range of resources, activities and ideas.
Within this room there is often a home corner that changes as the children have different ideas and experiences, from being a library, to a tea shop or hairdressers, it is so much fun!
We also have table top play and tummy time, (floor play) which could be puzzles, threading and creative play, then there are the books and stories, construction, plus the easy access to the lovely garden and patio area allowing for plenty of fresh air and even more activities to promote sociability, learning, coordination and independence to name but a few.
Adjacent to this room are the facilities for nappy changing, potty training and little children's toilets, which are so important now that this is becoming an integral part of the development of these children.
The Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines continue to be implemented, ensuring that each child is given every opportunity to reach their full potential whilst having fun, feeling secure, loved and cared for throughout each and every day.
