2- 3 years

Our provision for 2- 3 years is led by skilled practitioners who are there to facilitate learning in all areas of development through child initiated play.

Between the ages of 2 and 3, toddlers take huge steps in their development. They are now much more physically able, they are keen to explore and imitate the world around them and they need more space, time and freedom to do this. Children are building friendships as well as their language development.

With the encouraging support from our friendly practitioners, our toddlers are encouraged to explore, investigate, be creative and make progress at their own pace.

The next step

There are two intakes into the pre-school room in the January and September of each year. Children who turn 3 between September and December will move to the pre-school room in the January. Children who turn 3 between January and August will move up to the preschool room in the September, with transition visits arranged during the summer. Children will be with their friends and cohort when they join the preschool room.

Regardless of when the children are ready to move up to the preschool room, their development and learning is supported by starting from the child, and then matching interactions and experiences to meet their individual needs. Our observations of and interactions with the children are used to help us understand what they know and can do and what they need to do next- in partnership with parents and carers.
