Our custom built facility and play area provides the ideal environment for your child to develop.

 

From the moment your child steps into our school we strive to make every moment into a happy learning experience. Our rooms are equipped with a wide range of learning environments such as shops, kitchens and art areas.

 

 

No two children learn the same way

 

At Toddler's Lodge, we firmly believe that no two children learn the same way. Each child needs to be provided with the opportunity to learn in a way that works for them, and one which they enjoy.

 


 

A purpose built child focused facility 

 

We have a dedicated Montessori Room with all our equipment displayed on low shelving for individual freedom of choice.The materials cover Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Maths exercises. The programme includes teaching with simple lessons as well as a stimulating and non-pressured environment for children's minds and curiosities to grow.

 

 

Forming partnerships with parents

 

At Toddler's Lodge we recognise that a close relationship between staff, and parents and guardians is a clear indicator of a quality childcare service. We welcome parents' comments, questions and feedback at all times. We encourage parental involvement in activities or areas of interest that they may have.
We aim to create a school environment that encourages parents to become involved.
