Our Toddler room is for children aged 2-3 yrs, and the ratio is 1 adult to 4 children. This is the room of excitement and lots of hands on experiences. The room offers static areas – creative, messy, construction, role play, sand and water, and a quiet area.
There is also on offer for our tired toddlers time to sleep, they have their own individual beds for sleeptimes appropriate to each child’s needs.
Within the toddler room we usually start potty training with your child. It is your decision if you think they are ready. This is encouraged to be started at nursery at the same time as it is at home. A record of your child’s potty training progress will be monitored and sent home at the end of each day. At this time we ask that plenty of spare clothes are provided as accidents do happen.
The toddler’s room has easy access to the nursery’s toilet facilities and potty’s. The toilets and wash basins are at the correct height for children to promote independence in the bathroom.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is also used within this room and planning is done to suit the needs and age ranges of the children. As always you will always be able to access your child’s progress and developmental records.
Within toddlers we continue to build on your child’s social and interaction skills and we usually notice that children communicate more with their peers. At all times sand and water will be available for your child to access as we find this promotes all areas of development.
