18 - 30 months

Stimulating environments for children to learn and thrive.

The next step in your child's nursery life...

At around 18 months, depending on your child’s development, children are gently introduced to the toddler room where they discover new challenges through a variety of structured and unstructured activities.

These include emphasis on physical skills and play, art and malleable activities, sensory activities, early maths, introduction to language skills and imaginative play which are key elements of this stage. We encourage learning through the development of communication skills and social skills with their peers, all through the guidance of our experienced and highly trained Nursery Practitioners.

The variety of activities on offer is designed to ensure that children are able to learn effectively through their play. This is done in a fun environment where sand/water/messy play activities are on offer each day – staff use these activities to promote the use of language and expression.

Physical activities are a very important part of our day, both indoor and outdoor. Climbing, rolling, running, pushing, crawling, sliding are an everyday event at the nursery as well as outings to the local park, and markets in our specialised buggies. Yoga is practised every day and enhanced by our specialised Yoga teacher who works specifically with the Toddlers in the nursery.

We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and classes daily for our toddlers including yoga, swimming, football, dance, gymnastics and spanish.

We incorporate early math and language activities in outdoor learning in a variety of activities such as rolling cars down a ramp and counting how long it takes to reach the bottom.

Starting Nursery


What to expect - and how to prepare - when your child starts nursery


The Little People of Willow Vale nursery is so friendly and welcoming. My son is now 3 years old and has been attending for the last 18 months. He has benefitted so much from his sessions at the nursery in terms of his language development, social skills and learning good routines. All the ladies who look after the children are so caring and nurturing, they really get to know the children well and make them feel loved and supported.

My son is 16 months and has been in the nursery for 10 months now.
Amazing and caring staff. They get to really know all the babies and adapt to their specific requirements and personalities. The babies do many different activities and go outside to the garden or park every day. They get to learn a lot. Parents are informed daily through an app on what the babies have eaten, the sleeping times and activities the babies have done through the day which is really nice.

Deeply human and genuinely caring nursery staff.

I feel rest assured every day that my girl is taken good care of. While Little People of Fulham may seem a bit small, the teachers more than make up for it and the outdoor area is super nice.

I'm amazed by my 3-year-old daughter telling me about all the bones in the human body, continents, seasons, numbers, showing me her ballet and yoga skills and talking to me in Spanish.

I'm very happy my little one goes to Little People Nursery.

We love Little People of Fulham! The practitioners are all kind and warm and our 11 month old daughter loves spending the day with them. The nursery is well managed and has great facilities. We love getting regular updates from the practitioners that let us know what our daughter has been doing, whether she has slept and what she has had for lunch. The nursery organises well thought out programmes of activity and sends excellent communications and newsletters. We are so glad that our daughter goes to this nursery!
