PLAYING & EXPLORING!
We have been learning all about people who help us in the Toddler Room. This week we had the fire fighters visit us and we had a look at their vehicles, including the fire engine!
We value that children should be provided with the opportunities to gain an insight into their cultural awareness and understand the world around them.
The children in the Toddler Room are encouraged and supported to be independent learners at meal times. The children enjoy having the responsibility to perform daily tasks such as pouring their own drinks and washing their hands and face after they have eaten. The children are provided with nutritious meal choices which are healthy, to promote children to lead healthy and happy lives.
In November, the children have enjoyed participating in craft activities to celebrate children in need. They made their own pudsey buiscuits and decorated them themselves. These activities provided the children with the experiences to be create and express themselves through their senses and messy play.
In the month of November, the toddler room children have been learning all about the brave soldiers that helped protect us many years ago in the war. The children have been making craft poppy's with paint and other materials of their choice. It is important that children are aware of their communities and it was lovely to see all the toddlers become engaged in their expressive arts and design experiences.
In December 2021, the children in the toddler room had a special visit from Olaf the snowman from the popular Disney film Frozen. Many of our children love Frozen so we thought inviting Olaf into the nursery would be a great idea for the children. They loved him!
