Our Twinkle Stars area is set up for 2 year olds.
The ratio in this area is 1 adult practitioner to every 4 children. When children are nearing the end of their time in the Twinkle Stars Room they have some transitional sessions in the Shooting Stars area, where they have opportunities to meet the staff and other children.
The children in this area have a variety of different resources which they can all access independently. The staff also provide a range of adult led activities that follow the children’s interests and developmental needs. The children in this room are learning and developing very quickly, we offer support with potty training, encouraging sharing and taking turns, as well as learning about animals, colours, shapes and numbers, as well as a huge variety of other learning opportunities. The children also have regular access to the outside area throughout the day.
The staff that lead the Twinkle Stars Room are Kathy and Lucy, both have their NVQ Level 3 in childcare.
