Welcome to the Caterpillar's page.
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.
Hi, I am Emma and I am a Nursery Practitioner in the Caterpillar Room. I work full time over four days. I feel my strengths lie in providing activities that promote imagination such as role play and small world play. I also like art and craft. I am enjoying being part of the transformation in the caterpillar room. I joined Annie's back in February 2014. I have my SVQ Level 3 and i have applied for my CCLD level 4
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.
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.
