Little Friends Toddler 1 & 2

Toddler 1 & 2 are two separate rooms, enabling walkers and crawlers to have their own space to explore their surroundings safely. The two rooms work very closely together and share a wide variety of resources and designated play areas. Children are grouped by age and stage of development.

Key Workers establish secure relationships with children and families responding to children’s interests to support their learning and development and sharing information about the children with their families.

Nursery routines are introduced to structure the day establishing healthy patterns for living including regular snack and mealtimes, rest times, indoor and outdoor play times and individual and small group times, all of which promote children’s health and well being.

Both indoors and outdoors children are provided complete access to all toys and activities supporting the development of every child’s confidence and independence.

Toddler 1 and 2 also follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, observing and planning for each individual child. In these two rooms your child will be developing their skills within the three prime areas of the EYFS.

Observations, Assessments and Next Steps planning for individual children are continually available to parents via their child's Online Learning Journey. This planning and assessment process ensures children receive a full range of opportunities

Whether your child is moving into Toddler 1 from the baby room, or starting their nursery journey in Toddler 1 or 2, they will be settled in at their own pace, getting to know other children and the staff. We value the opportunity for you to tell us about your child and their needs.
