Juniors

Infants & Toddlers

With the world at their feet, babies from the age of 8 months to 12months attend our Infant group before moving to Toddlers (12 -24 months). With the familiarity of Staff; children make a very comfortable transition between these groups and are slowly introduced to the environment to ensure a relationship of trust and friendship has established between the children and staff.

Together the Infants & Toddlers Team ensures a harmonious environment filled with explorative opportunities for the babies to discover and build on the skills and abilities.

With great care and attention provided the children attending feel the calm and gentle reassurance of a wonderful team.
