Butterfly room is a place that focuses on learning but never forgets the importance of fun.

We are play-based and encourage the children to reach their full potential with guidance, help, and thought-out, child-led activities from the early year’s practitioners. The butterfly room is a happy place for exploring and finding out new things every day, it is important for each child to learn social skills to cope in the new classroom environment and progress in their life skills. Children are active hands-on learners and they learn by doing, we implement this into all our planners which are child-led and focused. Through these planners and activities, we are helping to promote children’s language, physical, social, and emotional development. We incorporate these through free play, work time, circle time, and art activities. In turn, this helps them to prepare for their move to Primary School. When children complete their senior year, Primary school is next and we aim to have the children confident and competent learners, full of self-esteem, and ready to take on this totally new challenge in the next stage of their development.

Through observation, we have seen how important the outdoor environment is to the children’s learning and holistic development so a big part of our routine is getting out into the outdoors.

We aim in the Butterfly room to maintain a high-quality standard of care and education in the room for all children. All staff are qualified and get the opportunity to engage in Continuous Professional Development.
Each child has his/her own key worker who assesses the child’s learning, work, and growth.

Butterfly Room Team Leader

Hi, I’m Katie. I’ve been part of Childhood Matters team since 2013 where I first began as a student, then as an early-years educator, and now a Team Leader. I have worked with babies right up to preschool. I have my BA Hons (Level 8) Degree in Early Years Education. I am also a Linc co-ordinator in the crèche. I enjoy upskilling and doing different courses and finding new ideas that I can bring into my room. It is very important for me to make sure that every child that passes through the door has a smile on their face and is happy coming into us. I think parental involvement is very important and sharing information with us as parents are the ones who know their children the best. This will help us to help each child settle and to reach their full potential.
