Toddlers 15+ months

At this stage of their personal development, children become much more independent – feeding themselves, drinking from larger cups, playing side-by-side with their friends and taking on a whole new approach to the ways in which they learn, develop and communicate. With this in mind Sunshine Room is fully equipped to support and encourage the children’s learning, including age and stage-appropriate equipment and resources, child-height furniture, sinks and role play equipment, and the opportunities to investigate and explore in more detail.

Children in the Toddler Room ??? are of an age where they will begin to make more definitive choices for themselves; attachments are being formed and they begin to respond positively to the introduction of some useful boundaries. Communication is of great importance as children start to make that transition to a new level of independence.We promotes the areas of development through various activities and experiences. The children are monitored regularly to ensure the educational planning revolves around their needs and natural interests. Their development and learning is always fully supported.
As children become more mobile new opportunities for exploration and exercise arise. A safe and interesting environment helps children to develop curiosity, co-ordination and enhance their physical abilities.
An art and separate water play area allows our toddlers to develop their co-ordination skills, taking part in more messy and fun play as they finger-paint and make models to bring home for you.
Singing & music play a large part in encouraging our toddlers to become more confident and communicative. Role-play and dressing-up games cultivates the children’s friendships and encourages their self-expression. We actively involve them in the making and baking of cakes and biscuits (with the expert help of the kitchen staff), which they can take home for their family to enjoy!
Once again the children have access to our all-weather garden, where they can plant seeds and watch them grow, or just burn off some energy playing with friends.
