“Welcome parents and carers to our Toddler Room. Within our space we have 3 rooms divided into areas:
- art and crafts
- small world and construction with role play and reading areas
- soft play, climbing frame room
Across the three rooms we are able to fully observe and expand childrens’ learning in all areas of development. We try and follow individual routines where possible and work in partnership with parents.
We like to do ‘circle time’ twice a day with the children, where we sing familiar songs and teach them numbers 1 to 10, colours and shapes. We also have a ‘story of the week’ which is read daily to the group.
Another activity we find the children enjoy is ‘magic box’ – inside this are a few recognisable objects which the children can not touch, the idea is to help children learn by listening and looking.
The softplay room is a big hit with our toddlers, giving them the opportunity to freely explore the climbing frame, ball pool and soft climbing apparatus with confidence.
I look forward to meeting you and your child and showing you all that we have to offer here at Oak House Montessori”
