Preppies (2.5 – 3.5 Years)

Explore & Develop


Our Preppies Room accommodates our 2.5-3.5 year old children. There are a range of exciting activities to promote learning across all areas of the curriculum.

Here children begin to learn the importance of becoming independent as we ensure the children are able to attend to their own needs and begin to show preferences and make choices.

In Preppies we encourage the children to

  • Continue their physical development, focusing on their fine motor skills as they become able to use one handed tools and control their pencils
  • Engage with exciting activities designed around their current interests in order to further their maths and literacy skills
  • Begin to understand the natural world and how it changes through the seasons
  • Be expressive and creative whilst creating their own free masterpieces or taking part in our multi-cultural or seasonal activities


We offer extremely reasonable prices for the high level of care we provide. Prices are from just £3.80 per hour for care. We have very flexible hours, to work to your needs.  Full days start from just £44.30.
