Our toddlers are our lollies. They have a room which is both next to the popsicles and the Lollipops (3-5). Our lollies are still able to have a little sleep if they need to and participate in fun and exciting activities relevant to their age and stage of development. At around 12-15 months, depending on your child’s development, children are gently introduced to the toddler room where they discover new challenges through a variety of structured and unstructured activities. These include emphasis on physical skills and play, art and malleable activities, sensory activities, early maths, introduction to language skills and imaginative play which are key elements of this stage. We encourage learning through the development of communication skills and social skills with their peers, all through the guidance of our experienced and highly trained Nursery Practitioners. The variety of activities on offer is designed to ensure that children are able to learn effectively through their play. This is done in a fun environment where different and fun messy play activities are on offer each day – staff use these activities to promote the use of language and expression. Physical activities are a very important part of our day, both indoor and outdoor. Climbing, rolling, running, pushing, crawling, sliding are an everyday event at the nursery as well as outings to the local park (restrictions permitting). Music is something we love at Nursery and we invite experienced music teachers to come to Nursery to provide a range of musical activities for our children. We incorporate early math and language activities into our outdoor provision in a variety of ways, for example picking a numbered wheeled toy and parking it in the corresponding number bay, or choosing a book to share in our dedicated outdoor reading area. Lollies wear a pale blue uniform.
