Seedlings (2-3 years)

Our dedicated room for toddlers is designed for children aged 2-3 years, marking their transition into Seedlings.


The room offers a free-flowing environment that emphasises education and development through fun, creative, and imaginative play. Activities focus on learning the days of the week, weather, numbers, and colours.

Toddlers have direct access to a private outdoor play zone and can extensively use the outdoor facilities and woodland area. They will also enjoy the petting farm with pigs, ducks, and chickens, and explore the brand new outdoor classroom.

Inside the warm and friendly 2-3s room, toddlers can engage in activities in the popular art area and conservatory zone, as well as rest in the quiet sleeping area.

As with all children at Ash Tree, toddlers receive nutritious, home-cooked meals and are supported in using cutlery and learning table manners.

In our 2-3s room, your child’s Key Worker will observe their development, ensuring the learning environment aligns with the Early Years Foundation Stage. This ensures they receive the best possible start to their education during their 12 months in the toddler setting.

Similar to the 0-2 room, our fully qualified staff will document your child’s learning journey and provide a verbal report upon pick-up.

When staff and senior members feel your child is ready to transition to preschool, they will discuss it with you. Your child will be invited to participate in a series of supported visits with their key worker to ease the final transition into preschool.

From September, additional childcare funding will be available for working families.
