Toddlers aged 15 months to 2 years
As children develop and refine the skills learnt as babies, their daily routines require a more structured approach to learning and play.
Our spacious, colourful and bright toddler room is the perfect environment for inquisitive little minds to grow and blossom. We combine a balance of child-led play with adult-initiated learning, specifically designed to develop your child's creativity, caring for others and social skills, as they establish their own identity.
We incorporate a range of activities, role play and social development skills that are specifically designed to encourage independence, collaboration and a greater understanding of their surroundings and others around them.
Learning through play
We incorporate the Early Years Foundation Stage framework in our daily activities and adjust the activity to suit the development stage of each child.
At Abington Park Day Nursery we consider every activity to be a learning opportunity – sorting shapes and sizes introduces early mathematics, enjoying rhymes, singing and music encourages language development and painting, mark making and messy play stimulate creativity.
Mealtimes also provide a great learning opportunity; the children serve themselves and sit together, helping to encourage sharing, positive social interaction, table manners and an appreciation for healthy food.
