Our Waddler Room
Our Waddler Room has a well balanced routine with lots of time for rest and free play. When babies are developmentally ready they move to the waddler room, the move is a very gradual and a well structured procedure. Staff in the Waddler room strive to provide an environment where small children can feel secure and confident to explore their surroundings in a very safe but interesting way. Each day Waddlers are encouraged to become more and more independent and plan activities that interest them using a range of different methods for example photos, activity tray or simply by pointing to activity. This is carefully recorded and used by staff to meet children's current interests and developmentally appropirate activities for each child.
The waddlers enjoy a wide range of activities with their key worker as well as lots of group time with an assortment of stories, nursery rhymes and songs. Here at Mellow Spring we understand that waddlers need lots of love and one on one attention and we strive to provide this throughout the day.
Parental involvement is encouraged and appreciated as we strive to create an environment where parents feel comfortable asking for advice or help dealing with challanges often faced at this ever changing time.
