There are no more than 20 children in the toddler area with a staffing ratio of 1 adult to every 4 children. 


  • All equipment, furniture and toys are suitable for this age group.

  • There is a toilet area, suitable for the disabled child, with a changing area, sink and hand drier.

  • We have a toilet area containing two toilets, three sinks and a shower.

  • There is a laundry room and a kitchen.

  • There is an office where staff can speak to parents, hold meetings and write and keep records.

  • There is an outside area for playing.


    All the staff have a responsibility for a group of children.  Each child has a key person who is the primary carer for the child.  They keep all records and   assessments and liaise with parents and outside agencies where appropriate.
