South Norwood Hill
Our South Norwood Hill location is incredibly unique. Here, we encourage play with not just toys - but also recycled materials and everyday objects. We believe learning through exploration is incredibly important and fully embrace the Curiosity Approach.
The curiosity approach offers little ones fantastic sensory and learning opportunities to learn through real-life, natural, holistic objects and thingamajigs! At The Butterfly Patch, we have taken this approach and added our own flavour to the spaces we have.
This approach offers great imaginative play opportunities whilst also promoting recycling, upcycling and reuse. We try to avoid having too many plastic toys - we'd rather repurpose household plastics for our learning activities!
