‘Exploring whilst developing independence’
This is the next part of the journey, which begins to explore more depth, movement and spatial awareness, as this is the age children are generally beginning to walk and independently take notice of their environment. The nursery staff will assess the best interests of your child and in moving him/her to this group, based on their needs and stage of development. Routine is based on individual needs, involving stimulation by age appropriate toys and activities combined with lots of praise, positive reinforcement within a caring nurturing environment. The clowns floor has its own large playroom, creative room, ball pool area, separate sleep room and changing room. Everyday the children are encouraged to spend as much time outdoors as indoors. This enhances their individual learning and development in both these areas.
