Child care facilities for toddlers in the Pontypool area
The toddler and tiddler groups are run by Kelly F, Sharon, Becky C, Kelly M and Shannon who look after children between the ages of 2 to 3 years. The groups are very busy with lots of fun planned activities every day, its no wonder most of the children need a nap at lunch time.
The groups are based on the lower floor along side the pre school group and have lots of different areas to use throughout the day, such as
- imagination room
- the snug with soft padded floor
- construction room
- art room with sand and water play
- garden with lots of play equipment
The toddlers and tiddlers have a timetable to ensure they get lots of variety mingled in with rest and quiet times. Pontypool park is right on our door step and is used frequently by the groups for nature hunts, walks, games and education as well as the local library. The groups have a break of toast or cereal, fruit and a drink at 9.30am, fresh home cooked dinner at noon and a snack at 3.30pm, consisting of a variety of foods such as fruit, sandwiches, yoghurt and pasta.
When a new toddler starts at the nursery it is very important for them to visit a few times beforehand so they get used to the environment and the people who will be caring for them. The settling in sessions are free and planned by the Officer in Charge. Parents are requested to bring nappies for the toddlers until they are potty trained which we will help with, always directed by parents.
