The Little Bugs Childcare buildings are fully self-contained and offer the children a comfortable, warm and inviting place for them to learn and develop.
Caterpillars (0 to 3 years)
This room is loving, calm and caring environment for the babies to explore and discover the world around them. The staff work on a ratio of 1:3 providing a safe and secure environment for your children. The Caterpillar room has a separate black and white area for the babies to explore (high contrast colors are proven to stimulate infants). The room is full of natural materials, wooden resources, mirrors and lights to reflect the Reggio Approach that we follow in the Butterflies room. In this room we promote Baby Led Weaning (BLW) in which we encourage the babies’ natural curiosity by providing a range of food for them to explore which develops their interest in food. Weaning usually starts at around 6 months and our lovely qualified staff will work with each parent to decide what routine and foods are best for your child.
Butterflies (3 to 5 years)
Our Butterflies room is set up so that all the children can move around freely to access everything independently. We encourage them to have control over their environment.
We have a story/quiet area which is made up of soft and fluffy rugs, which the children love to lounge around on when having a quiet few minutes reflection time or enjoying a story with their friends.
Our setting is also very fortunate to have beautiful outdoor spaces that the children love to explore. We have a Forest School area with a pond as well as some amazing outdoor equipment.
Little Bugs Childcare has amazing access to the outdoor area, through free flow to the outdoor classroom which consists of a large sit in sand area, high and low level water area and a mud kitchen as well as a beautiful book corner. The children also have access to the large outdoors climbing equipment in Creepy Crawlies.
Our Little Bugs love to help care for the animals in Creepy Crawlies and the children will often be found feeding and grooming the animals with the animal staff. The children also have their own guinea pig to care for in the Butterflies garden which they feed, clean out and handle daily.
Little Bugs Childcare has CCTV fitted inside and out for your peace of mind and ours.
