Children are now actively mobile and into everything! We work hard to
ensure that the toddlers receive a variety of activities throughout the day in
order to help them achieve and develop. At this age the children are beginning to establish friendships with their peers. The children learn to take turns and work together through a variety of group activities.
The activities are a mix of planned play experiences and free play. The planned play experiences encourage the children to work towards particular development aims. This is made possible by an adult playing and encouraging them, whilst observing and making assessments for the child’s individual needs and what next steps are needed to help them progress further. The free play sessions focus on allowing the children to
discover things for themselves and explore their environment. The children enjoy being outside whatever the weather and this room leads directly into our outdoor area allowing the children to be able to play indoors and outdoors freely.
