When your toddler joins Cheeky Monkeys they will have the opportunity
to thrive in an environment which encourages their creativity, independence,
confidence, determination and joy of exploring!
This means our highly skilled staff team will be next to them to catch
them in case they fall, mop up spills as they experiment with pouring,
listen to them as they tell a story, give answers and help them find
answers when they ask ‘why?’ and give them the time and
opportunities to create masterpieces! To ensure your child has the opportunity
to safely make these choices you will notice our rooms have tables and
chairs that let their feet touch the floor, labelled containers enabling
them to chose and put away their favourite toy, natural resources which
encourage inquisitiveness and stimulation, cosy quiet corners as they
enjoy listening to a story and spacious rooms that have a feeling of
‘realness’ to either be alone or share with friends.
The brand new outdoor area is another amazing learning environment where
they will have lots of time to practice their climbing skills, riding
tricycles, bikes, pushing buggies, throwing, rolling and catching balls,
and enjoying imaginative and creative play in the fresh air.
All our toddler room staff plan experiences based on our Cheeky Monkeys
approach of quality care and education and the Government's Early Years
Foundation Stage (EYFS). The EYFS values and celebrates the care and
education for children and babies aged 0 to 5 years by recognising them
as skilful and competent. The principles of EYFS affirm our child centred
approach and highlight the importance of relationships in a toddler's
Each toddler's dedicated Key Worker will ensure that their every requirement
is met and you can rest assured that you will meet a familiar face at
the start of every day. Our staff look forward to and value the time
they have to chat with each family.
