Our Rooms

Little Wonders Cromwell has three separate rooms, enabling us to deliver safe, nurturing and age appropriate learning experiences for all our children. 

Caterpillar Room

This warm and welcoming space caters for the youngest members of our family, aged from 3 to 20 months, and follows aspects of RIE and Pikler philosophies. The pace is unhurried and flexible, and teachers follow each individual child’s home routine.

Chrysalis Room

Specially designed for our children aged from 20 months to 2.5 years, and inspired by the Pikler and Reggio philosophies, the Chrysalis Room provides a homely, safe and calm environment where little ones thrive.

Butterfly Room

This dynamic and stimulating space is purposely designed for children aged from 2.5 to 6 years old, with plenty of spaces to explore and discover. Here, children drive their own learning, facilitated by our expert teaching team who use specific teaching practices and strategies to support and encourage positive learning opportunities for all children.

Once children turn 4, they join our Kārearea group where they embark on our specially designed transition to school programme. This includes regular school visits and our Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP) which strengthens the foundational skills needed for school. Meanwhile the remaining children in our Butterfly Room enjoy their own special Trail Blazers group where they have the chance to venture outside our centre on exciting excursions every third week.
