"Children learn from first hand experiences and Play"



Welcome to the Caterpillar's page. 

We understand that babies are inquisitive, observing everything around them and learning how to let you know what they’re thinking and feeling through body movement and facial expressions as well as grasping that difficult task of hand eye co-ordination. even at this very young age, we are introducing early numeracy and literacy which are all age and stage appropriate. 

As well as a nurturing dedicated baby team on hand to give lots of cuddles and conversation our babies have the right resources for them including lots of different texture play toys,  We have  a sleepy room and a comfy rest place as well as an abundance of rugs and specially designed areas where babies can explore, roll around and get to grips with becoming mobile.

Babies and toddlers are encouraged to learn by using their senses, exploring the world around them through a range of activities, in a safe and secure environment with familiar, friendly faces. Activities include singing, story time, messy and outdoor play, which allow the children to explore independently and develop their confidence. we have lots of Heuristic play and loose parts to encourage cognitive skills and imaginative skills. 

Our childcare team will work with you to ensure we follow your child’s routine to help everyone settle into nursery life. We also keep daily records of your child’s sleep and feeds. we always work in partnership with parents to ensure we are getting it right for our youngest children. 



Hello, I am Sarah and I am the Lead practitioner of the Caterpillar  I work full time over four days Monday to Thursday . I enjoy all aspects of early years but enjoy working with the youngest group in the setting. I enjoy messy play and any Arts and crafts and feel that if children are allowed to be creative it builds confidence and self-esteem.  I joined Annie's back in February 2015. I have my SVQ Level 3 and I am about to embark on my CCLD level 4. There have been lots of changes since the new manager came along and i am enjoying the challenge of the improvements that we are making.

What's Happening in The Caterpillar Room..

The children are offered a range of activities, and all ages in the room are included even our youngest. The group enjoy learning about colours, shapes and numbers. They get involved with snacks and lunches and are learning about risk and keeping themselves and other safe. The children have become a little family and enjoy social time together, reading stories and doing songs and rhymes. 

Our Outdoor Area

Our revamped Veranda area now includes a new sand pit, chalk boards on the walls along with plastic coloured panels which can be painted on and a new storage system which allows the children to help themselves to the toys or crafts items they would like to play with.

Home Link

We now have a Library System in place in the room where our children take home a book of their choice for a week and then return it when they are done. This is to make a link with home.
