Little Frogs


Age: 18 months – 3 years

Our Frogs room is designed for toddlers, with free access to the outdoor play space and stimulating equipment, there’s never a dull moment! A range of creative activities are planned to follow the weekly theme to promote creative learning.

A typical day might involve:

  • Role play
  • Construction
  • Story time
  • Painting
  • Cutting and sticking
  • Play dough
  • Gloop, Sand and Water play
  • Gardening
  • Small world
  • Singing and music
  • Circle time
  • Outdoor play

Activities are planned around individual children’s interests and stages of development, they are designed to encourage independence and a sense of discovery. We believe children learn best when actively engaged in finding things out for themselves, as such children have free access to the resources in the room and are able to make decisions about what they would like to do. As in the Tadpoles Room we use the Early years foundation. This takes four Aspects as its starting point, A Strong Child, A Skilful Communicator, A Competent Learner and A Healthy Child.

A Strong Child looks at the development of confidence and a sense of security, creating a positive self-image. A Skilful Communicator explores development of communication and interacting with adults and other children. A Competent Learner looks at making connections between objects, imagination, creativity and representation of others. A Healthy Child takes care of emotional well being, growing and developing, keeping safe and healthy choices with adult support.
