Toddler room 2-3
Children are encouraged to explore freely and self-select toys and activities they would like to play with to develop their independence and creativity, while also given the opportunity to join in with the group activities to develop their social skills and confidence.
At meal times the children are encouraged to serve themselves, we also promote independence by encouraging the children to set the table and give out cutlery and plates.
We encourage meal times to be a social event and use this time to encourage good manners and sharing.
If your child requires a nap whilst at nursery as part of their daily routine, we have cots and floor beds, clean bedding will be used for each child.
At Queensbury, outdoor play is just as important as any indoor activity and are we feel extremely lucky to have a wonderful large, safe and secure play area.
The play area is split into many different play experiences to encompass all areas of the EYFS, we have a fantastic mud kitchen, role play shops and a sensory garden.
So all we ask is that you bring hats and sunglasses on warm days, wellington boots and raincoats on rainy days and coats, hats, scarves and gloves on the cold days and then we can make the most of our beautiful play area and get the exercise we need whatever the weather.
Staff give high priority to children's emotional security and expertly help them to prepare for their next stage of learning and the move to a new room. Staff plan this transition meticulously to ensure that children have the skills and confidence to manage the change successfully.
