Developments for our 2 year olds...

Positive impacts day to day 

We have recently split our largest Grasshopper room for our 2-3 year olds into two smaller groups. There are now 3 rooms in our nursery which cater for this age group, with no more than 16 children in any one group.  We felt that smaller group sizes at this age would further enhance the quality of our provision, something we continually aspire for.

Children at this age are growing in independence, becoming more determined and confident yet still requiring close emotional support. Smaller group sizes mean a smaller staff team and therefore the time and space for children to create even closer relationships.

It has been a few weeks since the new rooms were officially opened and it has already had a big impact. The team have commented how they can better ‘hear the children’ and capture the little conversations of the day – so crucial at this age when the children are developing their language.

Many of the children have now learnt to put on their own coats ‘the magic way’, as the staff have had more time to focus on developing such key skills. We hope that this will have a similar impact on the children’s progress with their potty training also.

In addition, we have invested in new furnishings and learning resources for both rooms, such as jumbo pipettes, magnifying glasses, funnels and jugs to support discovery. The new welly benches in each room have also provided quicker access to outdoors, whatever the weather.
