Buttercup Room

Stage: Babies and young children.

Staff to child ratio in this room is 1:3.

Our curriculum intent for Buttercups is to provide a safe, secure, caring and loving environment for our children. This is often the first transition the child has made away from parents/carers so it is important for them to feel secure. This will provide the foundation for the children to be able to flourish in all other areas.

This room is specially designed for our more mobile babies and young children who spend their days exploring and investigating their surroundings by accessing a wide range of equipment.

Our staff will provide a comfortable, safe and stimulating environment for your child throughout the day and by using observations, which are made during the day, allow each child to develop at their own pace. The children are able to access the quiet, comfortable area to rest or sleep.

Your child will be encouraged to extend their communication skills by talking, listening, hearing and joining in and responding to stories and songs.

The children are free to explore and engage in a range of experiences including role play, small world, music and dance, heuristic play and creative opportunities.

There is access throughout the day to the outside area with opportunities to engage with children from the Sunflower room.

At present our Snowdrops and Buttercups children are merged.
