Chandlers Ford

2-3

Toddlers area

The Rainbow room has equipment that will help develop skills needed as the children grow.

At this age the children are getting more independent and we encourage self-motivation as a basis for learning within a stimulating environment, developing and building on the children’s curiosity, interest and fascination with the world around them.

We provide opportunities for learning within a context which is meaningful to the child. We aim to enable children to do things for themselves, have access to the resources they need to develop confidence, a positive self-image, independence and responsibility within a supportive and encouraging environment. We build on the values that the child has learned at home and involve parents in discussing, evaluating and contributing to the curriculum.

Our children have access to the outside play areas in all weathers; we offer sand play, water play, painting, mark making, music, construction etc both indoors and outdoors.

We use the guidance and follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage in our Rainbows room.

Toddler Room

Playing with sand and water is fun and is available both indoors and outdoors and dressing up is always a favourite.

OFSTED 2016:

"Children respond well to the consistently high expectations of their behaviour and enjoy each other's company. Staff develop children's understanding of the importance of personal hygiene, such as through explaining the importance of good hand-washing."
