The Tweenies

Practitioners working with the Tweenies offer a well-planned and sensitively thought-out environment that helps to foster and promote a positive sense of self and wellbeing in the children.

Staff are creative with natural materials, light and other resources, to achieve differing atmospheres such as intimacy or a sense of challenge or wonder. Our Tweenies’ Room reflects some aspects of the children’s home, their community and culture. This may include images and messages which represent home experiences and recognise cultural diversity.

The children have opportunities to use all of their senses in a variety of ways in environments where they feel safe but not overprotected. Practitioners strike a balance between the needs of children to explore independently and their safety concerns. Practitioners maintain consistency concerning lay-out of the physical environment, as well as planning for change where appropriate.
