2 to 3 Years
In this room we have a maximum of 16 children per day with 4 members of staff. This makes it slightly busier than our baby room, but still a smaller ratio with 1 adult per 4 children. This still allows for those close relationships to be built and to help the children to settle and feel happy and safe at nursery. The focus still remains on the three prime areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language Development
With aspects of the other areas of learning being woven in.
Knowledge and Understanding of the world
Expressive Arts and Design
Each day a variety of activities are set up for the children to encourage their curiosity. There is also the option for the children to make their own choices and choose their own resources.
Each child will be assigned a ‘Key Person’ who will provide the main daily care of your child, they will also converse with parents on a daily basis, to make sure that the needs of the child are being met appropriately, and that records of development and progress are shared with parents and other professionals as necessary.
