One to Two Year Olds
Creative play has an ongoing place within our one to two-year-old room. We encourage and provide daily opportunities for them to have fun expressing themselves, and developing their fine motor skills along the way. Our toddler children have access to a variety of mark-making and messy play materials; crayons, painting easels, playdough, clay, sand, mud and water – lots of mess and great fun!
Positive interactions and communication ensure our children’s vocabulary, speech and listening skills are enhanced and encouraged. Language is developing rapidly at this stage and children are beginning to put sentences together. Taking part in conversations that are led by the child but enhanced by the practitioner is a great way for children to learn new things and to begin to think about the past, present and future. Looking at books, listening to stories, rhyming and rhythm are all important steps in literacy.
When it comes to potty training, we will encourage your child to be as independent as possible. All we ask is that you bring in lots of spare clothes in case they have a little accident, so they will have their own clothes ready to be changed into.
