Our Toddler Room caters for children from approximately 20 months.
The staff deliver an exciting and varied range of activities in
accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage, using the child's
current interests to meet their individual needs.
There is a fantastic sensory area/dark room for children to relax and
take part in sensory activities.
This is based around the concept of the "unique child" and "enabling
environment" which simply means that staff will develop close
relationships with each child, getting to know their individual
personalities and interests and ensuring activities are designed to
encourage children to develop freely and for each child to achieve
their full potential.
The children have access to a secure outdoor play area including an
all weather area, covered sand pit, climbing slide, play house and a natural learning environment "Twiglets", where they can enjoy activities such as
painting with mud and looking for bugs and worms!
There is also a covered deck to allow for outdoor play even when it is
wet and cold outside.
All children will be allocated a "Key Worker" who will be responsible
for monitoring your child's progress, filling in their developmental
records and ensuring that they have a happy and enjoyable time
Some children may show an interest in using the toilet or potty whilst
in this room, so staff will work closely with parents/carers to support
this stage of development. We have a information sheet included in our welcome pack, on toilet training and staff are happy to offer help and advice but it is
something that needs to be developed at home and nursery.
Parents/carers will need to provide nappies, wipes, creams, spare clothes and any comfort toys, blankets, dummies etc.
Staff are always on hand to chat with you regarding your child's development and are committed to ensuring nursery is a happy experience for both you and your child.
