Our toddler area is carpeted with under floor heating for floor play and table top activities. It also provides a story corner, a home corner and an area reserved for sleep time. The children are provided with sleep mats and bedding which are stored in bags labeled with the child’s name on.
In addition, there is a large area with non-slip flooring which is used for art and craft activities and messy play. This area is also used for meal times.
All children are assigned to a key person who will be responsible for the children's learning journeys and development records. These records are available for parents/ carers to read at anytime. We also value and would welcome information contributed from home.
Toddlers have their own door leading to an outside play area which is safe and secure. It provides a variety of outside play equipment and toys to cover all aspects of development as well as safety surfaces and grass for the children to play on.
Toilet facilities are also located within the toddler room, offering small toilets, changing facilities and potties for toilet training.
Planning within this area is done on a weekly basis. This is done in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The main aim for toddlers is learning through play with language playing a very important role at this stage of their development: this is reflected within the planning.
