“The approach of my daughter’s key person is outstanding. She knows her very well and always acts to promote her health and wellbeing. We joined Hollies 3 months ago but it seems longer when you see the warmth and interaction from the staff.” – Toddler Parent.
The Toddler Room is spacious, light and inviting for children aged between 2-3 years, although children move through the nursery based on their personal development. The team plan for their own key children and look closely at their personal interests to encourage their next steps of learning.
The areas within the room provide stimulating resources appropriate to the child’s stage of development which are both accessible and open-ended so they can be used in a variety of ways. The space provides a free flow experience for the children between all areas including doors accessing their very own outdoor area, the also enjoy regular trips exploring our local area and often go out to feed the horses or just explore the country side often using their own cart.
The children are encouraged to learn, grow and develop as individuals. Their own personal preferences, decisions and feelings are respected by others. Children’s individual achievements are celebrated by displaying their work, photographs, models within the room for them to share with peers, practitioners and parents.
The team are also trained in Tiny Talk, which is a sign language used to help Toddlers communicate when they haven’t quite developed their language skills fully.
