Busy Butterflies


Welcome to our 'Busy Butterflies' room where our toddlers attend from the age of 2 to 3 years.

The room is lead by both Sharon and Laura who have been with Ripley Nursery School for many years.

Sharon is also the Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) for the Childcare provision.

The room seniors are supported by an experienced team of Early Years Practitioners: Beth Coley, Sally Stenson and Apprentice Shannon Bradley, as well as childcare support staff Clare Williams-Hunt and Jane Soult.  

Each key person is responsible for your child's overall wellbeing as well as their progress and development within the EYFS.

The room itself can accommodate 16 children with a staff to child ratio of 1 staff:4 children (1:4).

The room is secure and self-contained with access to the free flow outdoor areas.

The team are very experienced and are available to discuss behaviour, boundaries, toilet training, healthy eating and your child's developmental needs.
