TODDLERS

At Pickles Childcare, our toddler group is specifically for 2-3 year old children. Your toddler will be in a nursery setting with other children their age, so they can play and learn together in a safe, comfortable environment. From potty training to daytrips to healthy mealtimes, we make sure your toddler’s needs are fully met in fun and friendly surroundings.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHILDCARE FOR YOUR TODDLER?

  • Staff to children ratio is 1:4 for toddlers, in accordance with OFSTED regulations.
  • Your child will be assigned a keyworker who will work closely with them and monitor their progress. You’ll receive daily communication and regular reports.
  • You can have meetings with us whenever you like to discuss anything to do with your child, their care and their progress.
  • All toddlers will be guaranteed a place at preschool on their regular nursery days when they turn 3. We see them through until they go to school.
  • Healthy, balanced meals are included in our daily, weekly and monthly fees (please note, there is an additional fee for meals if your child has funding – they are also welcome to bring a packed lunch).
  • We support your toddler through potty training and teach them all about hygiene, following the routines you have established at home and making sure they wash their hands.
  • We have different rooms where toddlers can play and nap, helping ease them into the routine of nursery.

WHAT WILL YOUR TODDLER BE DOING DURING A TYPICAL DAY AT PICKLES?

Getting your child into a good routine is important, but so is fun! A day at Pickles will be structured yet entertaining – there’s something for every toddler. We emphasise the importance of learning and getting ready for preschool, whilst playing, exploring and making independent decisions. Your toddler will learn important life skills that will last them forever, like sharing and turn taking.

Here are some of the things your toddler will get up to with us:

Day trips

We make sure toddlers get out and about. We regularly visit places like parks, supermarkets and nature reserves.

Outdoor play

Toddlers always have access to our garden so they can enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air.

General learning

Nursery is a great place for learning those important life lessons, such as nose blowing, hand washing and sharing with others.

Quiet area

Children have space to nap if it’s part of their routine, and we can help them adjust to new routines as they get ready for preschool.
