Our Toddler Room
Our Toddler Room provides a rich learning environment to promote and enhance a childs continuing development. We provide a more structured routine for 2 -3 year old children who are begining to show signs of independence and inner conflict.
We encourage the toddlers to become more independent in their feeding habits and their ability to help themselves in toileting, dressing and planning daily activities.
Toddlers are encouraged to plan their day using the Highscope approach of Plan Do Review and use a variety of methods to plan with their key worker.
Our Toddler room prides itself on the use of photos to help children recall the day's activities. All photos are placed on the parents notice wall or directly outside of the room to allow parents and guardians join in the days activities on drop off or collection time.
Toddlers are exposed to a wide range of open ended materials developing their imagination and their creative skills. Each day our Toddlers enjoy painting, playdough, sand, water and gloop. Puzzles, writing and construction are readily available to further develop language and cognition.
Toddlerhood is a time of frustration and temper tantrums and at Mellow Spring we aim to work closely with parents to make the transition from infancy to Preschool as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
