Clowns Floor at Circus Day Nursery...
“The activities that are the easiest, and most fun to do – such as singing, playing games, reading, storytelling, and just talking and listening – are also the best for child development.” ~ Jerome Singer (Professor, Yale University)
Clown Floor is the next step in each child’s journey at Circus Day Nursery after the Baby Suite. Babies from 15 months (dependant on development stages) and between 24 and 30 months depending on individual needs, can explore more in-depth, movement and spatial awareness while having their own unique developmental needs respected.
At this age children are walking independently and taking notice of their environment. Stimulation is offered by age appropriate toys and activities. We combine this with lots of praise and positive reinforcement within a loving and nurturing environment. Just like in our Baby Suite, Clown Floor carers respond to the little ones with the love and care they need to get the best start in life. We share these magic moments on “Tapestry”, their online learning journal with you, so you feel fully engaged in their learning, growth and developments.
Play and exploration is the way children at this age learn so we’ve set up Clowns Floor to provide as much encouragement for children to play as possible. There are two large playrooms, and changing room. Children have daily access to our amazing sensory room situated within their department, also accessible to all children in the nursery.
Each day the children are encouraged to spend as much time outdoors in our safe play areas as well as tending to their very own growing area which they have developed. This enhances their individual learning and development which encourages them to make discoveries on their own whilst under constant care and supervision.
The next level at Circus is Jugglers Floor for our toddlers from ages two to three years. Again, we discuss with parents and decide together with the child’s key person when the children are ready to move on to this new adventure. Just like the transition from the Baby suite to Clowns Floor we introduce the child and parents gradually to the new floor through a series of ‘taster’ sessions.
