Little Comets

18 – 26 Months

Little Stars Nursery

Little Comets 18- 26 months

Whilst our nursery is spacious, it is set in a house, so the overall feeling is homely. A real benefit of having so much space is the opportunity to split the children into 5 distinct age bands. Little Comets start at approximately 18 months, whereas traditionally babies are mixed with children as old as 2 years.

Having such a small age band means the rooms and care routines can be tailored more accurately to meet the children’s needs. Other benefits are the children settle more quickly and each time they move to the next room their progress is accelerated. Most children at this stage will have a sleep after lunch but we are carefully guided by your wishes to ensure your child’s routine remains.

Activities

In the months they spend in Little Comets, children are encouraged to become much more mobile, their speech develops significantly, and they start to play with one another. 

Learning is characterised by fun, active sessions that encourage the children to be adventurous – we use a wide variety of resources to achieve these goals. The Staff to child ratio is one adult to three children for under twos, and one adult to four children for the children who are two. Children are given constant praise, attention, and affection.
