Toddler room (2-3 years)

The Toddler room can accommodate 13 toddlers with the staffing ratio being 1 adult to 4 children, this ratio is always met and often exceeded. There is a play area, a home corner, craft and drawing area, quiet area with book corner.

We follow the ‘Foundation Phase Framework’ in this class which provides us with the guidance to extend a child’s learning covering all areas of their development. The seven areas of learning are:


                                                   *    Communication, language and literacy

                                                   *    Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy

                                                   *    Personal, emotional and social development

                                                   *    Knowledge and understanding of the world

                                                   *    Welsh language development

                                                   *    Physical development

                                                   *    Creative development


Here at Once Upon A Time we encourage children to engage in all types of play:

free play, imaginative play, structured play, role play, group play, creative play, social play and quiet play.
