The Caterpillar Room is where our younger children, aged 2 1/4- 3 begin their Tilehouse Street journey.  With a maximum of 10 children in the room at any one time, we really focus on getting to know each child and meeting their individual needs, as well as helping them to develop and explore their interests.

Children engage in self-directed learning through play, indoors or outdoors as they choose, securing their prime areas of development as they grow in confidence and competence.

Each session incorporates clear routines which help the children feel secure, develop independence and recognise letters, names and numbers.
