Children aged 2 to 3 years old
Preparing our 2 and 3 years old for pre-school is an important part of our role as qualified nursery nurses, and we are keen to ensure that learning is as much fun as possible.
At Abington Park Day Nursery, we understand that the early years of a child's development are critical for ensuring children acquire the essential skills required to be successful at primary school and throughout the rest of their lives.
Early years learning and education
As children grow, they require a more structured approach to their learning and education, and we actively follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) to plan age-appropriate and motivating activities, specifically designed to develop essential skills; such as language, social-interaction, numeracy, reading and writing in younger children.
We combine a balance of child-led play and adult-initiated learning into our nursery education and regularly monitor the progress of your child's development as part of their ongoing learning journey.
The EYFS framework help us to assess your child's progress in the following development areas:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
Potty training is a key milestone for many of our 2 and 3 year olds; we work with you and your child to help them adapt confidently to this new experience, gently encouraging children to take responsibility for their own hygiene and emphasising the importance of correct hand washing.
