Our large open plan Toddler room facilitates our 2 year olds whose progress is carefully planned for by practitioners Michelle and Jonathon.
The 2 year olds attend a range of sessions from full to part time and some who access sessional care through the Early Learning for 2 year olds funded places. The care and teaching delivered by the practitioners is highly individualised to meet the needs of each Toddler.
