Older Baby Room (2-5years)
In our Lions’s room the children are aged from 2 years – 5 years. In this area we have a capacity for 15 children and 3 staff members.
The children’s day is a little more structured. We do separate the children into age and ability groups and each group is allocated a key worker. We separate them into age groups of 2-2.5 years, 2.5 – 3.5 years and 3.5 – 5 years. We follow EYFS – Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The children have a structured routine as well as time for free play. The activities range from cognitive, physical, emotional, construction. We do mathematics, language and literacy, creativity-doing activities inside and outside.
The parents in this age group can claim early education grant funding through us.
We carry out monthly topics with a daily structure of activities taking place alongside free play. We ensure that our children have the opportunity to explore toys that support all the areas of learning such as mark making, construction toys, messy play and home corner.
In doing our topics we encourage our children to become aware and explore their surroundings. Inspiring them to ask questions and support them in finding the answers. We bring people into the nursery to talk to the children and we take the children to places to develop their knowledge as much as possible in the topic we teach them.
We like our children to express themselves through imaginative and creative play, as well as encouraging skills such as letter and number recognition and formation and pencil control.
We do this in a warm friendly environment, making learning fun and putting childcare first. All our children are regularly observed and assessed, building and meeting their individual records of achievement.
We hold parents meetings every 6 months sending records home for the parents to have written records of their child/children’s progress.
