Baby Room

3 months - 18 months

Our baby rooms are bright, cheerful and stimulating, offering a caring environment with a focus on sensory experiences.

Children are encouraged to explore the world of colour, shape and texture through the use of natural light, toys, adult interaction and lots of care and support

As children begin to explore, they will gain confidence and then be able to participate in a wide range of educational and fun activities, all of which will be planned in advance and will include colouring, painting, messy play, singing etc., to create a fun-filled day for your child.

18 months - 3 years

This area is  full of busy energy as by this stage, your toddler will be able to experience a wider range of educational yet fun activities that have been carefully selected to stimulate their ever expanding minds.

When it comes to potty training, we will encourage your child to be as independent as possible. All we ask is that you bring in lots of spare clothes in case they have a little accident, so they will have their own clothes ready to be changed into.



3 years - 4 years

During free play sessions, children are encouraged to be independent and to make their own choices from a wide range of different activities. A structured day is centred on individual learning, this, coupled with lots of fresh air, provides a busy day for all in the Pre-School Rooms.

At the end of their time in pre-school, the children will have increased levels of confidence and be socially interactive, ready for a smooth transition to full-time schooling 



We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (aka the EYFS) which is a statutory framework, covering learning and development from the day your child is born until the end of their first year at school. Leapfrog Day Nursery provides all children with a firm foundation on which to build future academic, social and emotional success. We do this by ensuring the Early Years Foundation Stage themes are embedded in all aspects of what we do. The four guiding principles are as follows:



 Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.



 Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.


Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.



Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.
