Our Age Groups at Whetstone

Explore the different stages your child will go through at Lilliput Whetstone.

the perfect place to explore

Under 2's

The baby room for the under two's is in the main part of the nursery which is divided at low level to separate the toddlers and walkers from the crawlers. This means that your children have plenty of space to develop and play in a safe manner with age-appropriate toys and equipment.

growing with confidence

2 to 3 year olds

As your child approaches 2 years of age they will move up to the toddler room to continue their learning and development. The 2-3 year olds have two rooms, the first is on the ground floor, and has access to the garden, the older toddlers use the upstairs room, with their own toilet and sensory room where they can enjoy a variety of experiences with light projectors and fluorescent toys.

explore, learn and play

3 to 4 year olds

The 3 and 4 year olds in the preschool group have two rooms which operate on a free flow basis, plus access to the outdoor play area. This means that your child can have some element of choice of whether they want to be inside or out when they are playing and learning. These rooms are equipped with age-appropriate resources for learning and creative play, which help your child gain knowledge and develop their physical and social skills to prepare them for primary school.

The outdoor play area has a large deck with a playhouse and covered sandpit, and an area of safety surfacing for more physical play which is partly covered by a large gazebo to give some protection from the elements. There is also a quiet garden corner where your children can plant their own flowers and vegetables to learn how things grow.
