Frogs is for children who are confidently mobile (from around 18 months) to 3 years old.
Frogs have their own room in the nursery. The focus of this room is on physical play for energetic 2 year olds, with lots of malleable play using sand, water and play dough which help children to develop their fine motor skills.
Experiences offered in the frogs room include free flow access to outdoor play, key time, letters and sounds and a quiet room for ICT and books. You can read more about the rooms and facilities at Cheeky Cherubs on our rooms page. Frogs also have the opportunity to participate in a number of extra activities including growing flowers and vegetables in our allotment, sports day, swimming lessons, trips and days out.
