Toddler Room

Our Toddler Room

Your child’s day will start with meet and greet by our friendly staff in our Toddler Room.

Our children are encouraged to make their own choices throughout the day and take part in adult led activities. The room is set up in a way that aims for children’s development to take place through their natural curiosity.

As with all the age groups of children at Bolitho Nursery, we observe and plan for children individually, ensuring that each child has the opportunity to learn and develop a broad range of skills through play and discovery, based on their interests and level of development.

We work closely with our local health visiting team and we will complete a 2 yr old check for your child to coincide with the integrated health review. This will be undertaken between their second and third birthday and will be shared with you, providing the opportunity for you to contribute to it.

Planning includes daily FunFit activities supporting physical development, Letters and Sounds alongside Toddler Talk activities are planned to enhance children’s development in all areas of communication.

Our toddlers also spend a huge amount of time exploring our Pirate Ship garden, whatever the weather! They are keen gardeners and enjoy looking after their plants and minibeasts too!

As your child approaches three, your child’s key person will provide opportunities for short visits into the Preschool room in order to create a smooth transition to the room.

In the Toddler Room, there are lots of opportunities for discovery and adventure:

  • Listening to stories, exploring books, joining in with singing, music and movement sessions.
  • Role play activities – pretending to be a firefighter, mummy or daddy, builder or princess!
  • Construction activities with open ended resources to encourage imaginative and create building.
  • Planting seeds and transferring them out to the mini greenhouse and then planting them outdoors.
  • Exploring the giant sand pit, pirate ship climbing area and other garden activities.
  • And much more!
