Caterpillars: 2-3yr olds
Caterpillars is our 2-3 year olds room, where each day the children enjoy learning through play, while still having their emotional needs met by the very caring and attentive staff.
The children’s daily routine will include:
- Role Play
- Messy Play
- Sensory Play
- Music & Dance
- Circle time
- Games and Out Door Play
At this stage, children will begin to explore making new relationships and start to develop their independence.
The Seahorse team are always available to talk with parents, about their child’s needs, and are happy to offer advice and support where it is needed.
Every half term we have an educational theme such as Animals, Under the Sea and Our Senses.
In Seahorses the planned activities are focussed around the three core areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
- Communication & Language.
- Physical Development.
Although all the areas of learning are integrated into the daily routine.
Throughout your child’s time in this room, their achievements will be recorded in their learning journey, this will continue into the preschool room.
