About The Primrose Room


The needs of children under three vary greatly from those of the pre-school child. We recognise that at this stage of development, as with babies, they learn with their whole bodies and all their senses. It is what is known as the sensory-motor stage of development and describes the way in which the child gathers information and knowledge by using their senses and being physically active.

The type of environment that toddlers need is one that promotes active play and learning and in which they are encouraged to explore and investigate alongside supportive and interested adults.
