The toddler room is divided into 2 rooms, which has a free flow access into each other to provide plenty of room for young children to explore and mix together learning through play; however we will sometimes close the connecting doors to allow for group times. As the children in the baby room progress, children begin to show an increasing independence and obvious pleasure in moving, communicating and learning through play, so around the time of their second birthday we will arrange inductions for the child and parents to make transitions smooth and happy for all. In the toddlers room children have a slightly more structured routine to their day whilst learning through a wide range of fun activities and experiences planned for their continued learning and development by their key person who will get to know them really well. Some families may be entitled to two year funding from ‘Flying Start’.

 

Kirsty our toddlers room lead, show her passion for child care through activities with the children looking after up to 20 children each day between the two rooms, leading the toddler team, whom are all NVQ 3 and one support worker, with key staff planning next steps for each child focusing on the prime areas. Around this age children display a greater competence at moving and talking and pretending. They also show increased confidence in themselves and their skills at making relationships.  

 

The rooms are divided into different areas. One will include all their messy activities: arts and crafts, play dough, cornflower and many more, role-play, mark making, book and cosy corner, construction and small world  . The other room will include areas like their, sand and water play, science and nature, music and movement and maths and ICT. We also have a separate sleep room for those children who need a rest. By setting the rooms up in this way we aim for the children’s development to take place without too many overly formal activities.

 

The children in the toddler room are able to explore and learn throughout their day without too much pressure and at their own pace. They will be given free access into the garden which will provide them with an outdoor extension to their indoor activities. At this age also children will be experiencing the change from nappies to potties and toilets. Whatever the challenge, you can be assured that our staff are well trained, motivated and committed and work alongside parents/carers during this transition.
