At Playdays our aim is to help each child to reach the highest degree of independence and confidence
…as well as to discover their own strengths academically and creatively, and to pave the way for them to go on and be happy and inquisitive at school.
The Toddler Rooms take children from approximately one and a half years old. It is at this stage that we aim to give the children a gentle but enjoyable experience whereby we encourage creativity through painting, cooking and dressing up activities, as well as learning new vocabulary and language development in the home corner and story areas. The carers aim to help the children become more independent by allowing them the freedom to choose and lead in activities and to stimulate their senses further. There is a broad range of toys and resources and the children are encouraged through a wide range of pre-planned activities with the aim of following their lead and staff responding to their developing skills and abilities. Playdays also encourages physical activities be it outdoor or indoors via music and movement and action games as well as range of construction materials in order for the child to extend their fine motor development. The staff are also happy to work alongside the parents when the time is right to start toilet training.
