Welcome to the Butterfly House


 We are very lucky to have a Nurture Group which has been running very successfully for the past year with very successful results. The group is led by Mrs. Schofield and Mrs. Farrelly who have certification from 'The Nurture Group Network'.


What does a Nurture Room look like?

Our nurture room (the Butterfly House) has a very homelike atmosphere with a sofa and cushions,

work tables, kitchen, eating and washing area.  Snack is prepared by the children and staff in the room;

this is a daily activity that encourages social skills and develops language development. 


When does the Nurture Group take place?

Children use the Butterfly House four afternoons a week from 12:50pm-3:00pm. They can stay in the Nurture Group for between one and four terms.


What do we do in the Butterfly House?

Within the nurturing environment of the Butterfly House, children develop trusting relationships with adults and other children, while being supported and praised. Children talk about feelings, problems and issues through:

  • group discussions
  • social interaction
  • role play
  • circle time
  • food preparation and snack time
  • activities (art and craft)
  • story time
  • outdoor living
