A little bit about our Tweenie unit …

In the tweenie room the children start to gain new skills, develop their already existing skills and start to form personal preferences within their play. At this age the children are encouraged to start making choices within the activities that they take part in throughout the day, this is in preparation for their transition to pre-school. Parents are given personal handovers from staff about their child’s day. The staff offer guidance and support on toilet training, which is a question that we often get asked.
