Toddlers

We would like to welcome Laura and Lynsey to the toddler room team. Laura is an SVQ 3 qualified practitioner and Lynsey is an apprentice support worker currently working towards her NPA qualification.

The toddlers have been very busy creating a fabulous Autumn display! The children went out for a walk using the walk-o-diles to look at the changing colours of the leaves on the trees. They then helped to collect a selection of leaves along with some sticks and acorns bringing them back with us to the nursery. The staff demonstrated to the children how they could use the leaves to create leaf rubbings and the children had a turn a creating their own rubbings. They also used Autumnal coloured paints and golf balls to work together to create a beautiful picture full of patterns.

As a few of the toddler children have been at the doctors recently we decided to have a look at how a doctor and other people can help us. We brought the doctors and nurses costumes and other resources into the room for the children to explore and use. Through their role play they demonstrated what they had learned about the doctors and also showed interest is the role of a fire fighter. When choosing the colours for the water tray they chose red and blue for the flashing lights of a fire engine.

The children are beginning to show an interest in the topic of Halloween and used the acorns they collected along with pipe cleaners and googly eyes to create some very scary spiders!!

As a staff team we are working towards implementing the Curriculum for Excellence into the toddler room to extend and develop the children that will be over the age of three. We have also started separating into three groups for group time so we can continue to develop the children’s individual interests and next steps.
