At Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries, between the ages of 14 months and 3 years old, children enjoy a space in our Toddlers’ rooms. The Toddlers’ rooms match their inquisitiveness and energy, with well-considered furnishings and learning resources accessible at all times.
All children’s development at the nursery is underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage which is the framework that your child will be assessed under in their first year at school. At our nurseries, we prepare your children for school by carefully weaving the framework into your Toddler’s play each and every day.
With your child’s growing independence their reliance on adults is eased slightly and we ensure that each team member has no more than four children to support at any one time. By doing this, we can see your children become more and more independent at this age, continuing to grow and thrive.
Toddlers continue to develop with a focus on the three prime areas and are more fully introduced to four more specific areas that support their growing enthusiasm for exploring their world. These are:
- Understanding the world
- Expressive art and design
As the your Toddlers go about their play our educators sprinkle texts, books, sounds and numbers around them, promoting your child’s curiosity.
There will always be space and opportunity for them to create their own work and art, being encouraged to have a go themselves inspired by the world around them.
