Children move into this room with their cohort of peers for approximately one year before they start formal schooling.  This means that the children will all be of a similar age and will all start "big" school together.

Within this room staff encourage the pre-school children to become independant learners by allowing them to choose their own activities and promoting Personal, Social and Emotional development.  The children have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of activities, with the emphasis on on the staff being on hand to challenge and extend their learning. 

Children's individual daily routines are still adhered to within the Butterflies Room as some of our oldest guests still like a little snooze and need help with their toileting.

We provide free extra currilcular activities for this age group including weekly Superstar Sports and Mindfulness sessions plus regular visits to local areas of interest.

We have positive relationships with surrounding schools which makes the transition to "Big School" a little easier when our children are ready to leave us.

Our Rooms

Baby Caterpillars

The baby room is bright and colourful to create a stimulating environment for our youngest guests. The babies have access to multi sensory play on a daily basis including sand and water; painting; gluing; play dough; jelly or pasta play. As well as a wide range of toys and books, we offer wooden toys and lots of natural materials to satisfy the curiosity of our babies..

Crawling Caterpillars

A thoughtfully planned programme is provided for our toddlers allowing them lots of free play and free choice. We have two rooms designated for the children including a light and bright conservatory which looks out onto our garden and a creative play room..

Wriggly Caterpillars

Within this room staff encourage these children to begin to become independent learners by allowing them to choose their own activities, but with staff available to support and guide these young children. The children have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of activities, with the emphasis on the staff being on hand to challenge and extend their learning.

Butterflies

Children move into this room with their cohort of peers for approximately one year before they start formal schooling. This means that the children will all be of a similar age and will all start school together.

Out Of School Club

Various activities are provided for our eldest guests in our Before School Club, as well as a choice of breakfast. The children are then transported to their schools via the Club's minibus. Children who attend Meadowdale Primary School are escorted to their classrooms by a member of our staff team.

Holiday Club

During the Leicestershire school holidays we offer more fun filled activities within Caterpillar's Holiday Club. These are similar to our Out of School Club but we also organise trips to the park, museums, library and local places of interest within Market Harborough and Leicestershire. Breakfast, snacks and drinks are provided throughout the day. Parents are requested to provide a packed lunch for their children.
