At our Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery in Stevenage,  children are welcomed into and enjoy a space in Toddlers Room when developmentally ready, usually between the ages of 16 months and 2.5 years old. This space is filled with well-considered furnishings and learning resources to match the needs of the children.

When your child moves up a stage, their day is structured around their changing interests. Our nursery equipment has been carefully selected, allowing your child to discover and develop at their individual level of understanding. The room focuses on the primary areas of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework and promotes learning through play experiences. We have created various dedicated areas offering different activities to engage your child.

Our messy play area provides progression in the children’s sensory play by offering unlimited access to many different medias, such as jelly, sand, shaving foam and rice. The cosy corner ensures the children can have a quiet area to sit and listen to stories, whilst the home corner offers that all important role play that toddlers love. The mark making area encourages your toddler to practice their fine motor movements through painting and drawing on large paper. Our investigation area delivers the early opportunity to explore numbers, shapes and puzzles.

Toddlers also benefit from a staffing ratio of one member of staff looking after no more than four children. As this is the time when the majority of children start toilet training, the room has been designed with bright and colourful toilets, to make this important development stage as easy and comfortable as possible and promote early independence.
