Welcome to Toddlers
In the Toddler room, we work together towards providing a safe and welcoming environment with a familiar routine. We like to make the room feel homely and inviting and encourage parents and families to be a part of their child’s learning, growing and development.
Within our room we endeavour to create an environment that gives children time to play without rushing them and encourage them to exercise their imagination and learn to conjure up ideas from within themselves. A rich supply of natural materials provides scope for imagination in play.
We work to develop the children’s self help skills encouraging them to feed themselves and the beginning of toilet training if requested by parents.
Sensory play has been very popular in our room recently with the children exploring the different textures on our sensory table, e.g. sand, rocks, leaves, sticks and in the past week we have been exploring rice and its textures and discovering where it comes from.
We have started to include gardening in our program with the children helping to plant and water the new plants. We are also talking about healthy eating and caring for the environment will be a part of the learning.
