At approximately 2 years children will move up through the nursery in to our Early Learner/Pre-school Room, developing within this room until they are ready to go to school. The room follows the Early Year’s Foundation Stage profile with clear links on our weekly plans showing the areas we are focusing on. Children are encouraged to begin looking for and recognising their name. Participating in group activities such as stories, singing and directed circle times.
The open plan space within the room allows your child to move around freely and explore the different areas of learning as well as additional subjects of science, learning about cultural differences and the use of technology with our own computer. Personal hygiene routines are encouraged such as continuing to brush their own teeth, toilet use and dressing routines. Children at this age will also empty their own plates and cups to continue their own independence.
Outdoor learning is very important for this age group and the children are encouraged to challenge themselves in our spacious playground and a dedicated meadow and woodland.
