At two years old, toddlers move up into the main room. Here, our aim is to not only encourage youngsters to play happily together, but also to participate in separate activities to ensure their individual needs and preferences are served.
The transition from the baby room is planned for each child. Older babies/Toddlers spend time with their new key person in their new surroundings to ensure the move is enjoyable and easy for both you and your child. Being open plan, this move is much easier and most toddlers can’t wait to move in with the ‘big children’
Every Child at nursery has a Record of Achievement Folder (ROA), they have been designed around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS ). The folders include information about your child, within each learning area we record anecdotal observations of your child’s development. This may be recognition of caring for another child, creating a wonderful piece of art, helping others, or simply joining in and having fun; we also recognise how important your role is and we encourage parents to contribute to these folders.
We do believe very much in active learning through play for all of our under fives and our key persons work hard to put together activity planning that not only meets the needs of their key children but that is also lots of fun!
