Catkins has a door entry system and a cloakroom area where the children find their picture and hang their coats up and change their shoes upon arrival. Leading off of the hall there are the children’s toilets, also a corridor leading to the kitchen/staff room, staff bathroom and the separate nappy change/potty area.
Catkins has one large main playroom which is decorated in neutral tones with plenty of natural wooden toys and furniture, where the children are able to move around to access the activities on offer. There is a door from here to the outside area which has a soft surfaced play area.
Off of the main playroom to the rear of the building is the office and a ‘quiet room’ where children can take part in specific activities such as stories, phonic or maths work in small groups or to explore ‘treasure baskets’. This is also where the younger children can also have their sleep time after lunch
