The Hedgehog Room (0-30 Months)
The Hedgehog’s room has two main areas, a hard floor area for messy play and snack times and soft carpeted area for floor play. There is also a separate sleep room and a changing area complete with a toilet and hand washing facilities.
Our Hedgehog room is a safe comfortable space for children aged from birth-2 1/2 years.
A cosy area is available for cuddles, reading and singing.
There are role play opportunities for all ages, interactive wall displays and a heuristic play area for children to explore.
We offer a range of exciting, fun and stimulating activities throughout the day.
The nappy changing area has a dedicated changing station which is attached to the wall. There is a small toilet and hand washing facilities for children who are beginning to toilet train. Children’s independence with regards to their personal hygiene needs are instilled and promoted early, with children using these hand washing facilities before each meal time and after nappy changing/toileting.
We have a dedicated sleep room, providing children with a dark, distraction free area to relax and fall asleep peacefully. We provide children with their own clean bedding, although parents may wish to leave a grow bag here for us to use.
Within this room there are lots of safe spaces for non-mobile children to play and explore, as well as low furniture to help promote their initial first steps.
The children also use our large garden. When in the garden we provide your child with an all weather suit to keep them clean and dry as well as our own wellies. For non mobile children we make use of pushchairs and trikes with handles for adults to push. We also have a large covered sand pit, slides and swings. As well as the garden, we often make use of our proximity to the canal and take the children to feed the ducks, look at the other wildlife and visit the park.
