Learning for life through exploration

In Mini Methwold we have spaces dedicated to a shop, kitchen and cafe, doctors, hairdressers, Post Office and even a fire station all to be explored.

An enclosed outside area provides space for outdoor play, with a playhouse and more role play opportunities.

Role play is essential in children's learning and development, so with this in mind Mini Methwold has been designed to promote little people’s social development, encourage friendships, sharing, listening and most importantly to have fun.
