Our tots room is for children between the ages of 2-3, which includes two rooms, one with direct access to our garden and both with access to an equipped bathroom and changing area, the rooms have plenty of space for both meals, sleeping and of course, play!
At this age, children begin to show an increasing independence and obvious pleasure in moving, communicating and learning through play. Our rooms offer many opportunities for their developmental needs. We include various other activities such as arts and crafts, heuristic play, music and movement, exploratory areas and plenty of opportunity for free play both indoors and outside.
In terms of organisation, the room caters for all their messy activities: arts and crafts, sand and water play, cornflour, play dough and much more. The room also is the base for all meals served throughout the day. The room includes areas like their home corner, book corner, construction area as well as a comfy carpeted area with sleep mats and blankets
By setting the rooms up in this way we aim for the children’s development to take place without too many overly formal activities. The children will be able to explore and learn throughout their day without too much pressure. They have access into the garden which provides them with an outdoor extension to their indoor activities.
