Toddlers (22-34 Months)
At Humpty Dumpty Childcare we understand how hard it is to leave your toddler with someone who is not a family member. We adopt a key person approach to minimise the number of relationships your child and you need to develop in those early days, with the sole purpose of making it easier to leave them with us. We have a minimum 2 day booking requirement, research and experience has shown us that children who have regular contact with their secondary care giver settle quickly and build strong, professional relationships with them. This in turn minimises the anxiety the child experiences and enables them to quickly feel confident and at ease in the nursery.
Our Toddler Room Leaders are qualified, experienced educators who are passionate about the children in their care, they ensure their team are focusing on the prime areas of development. Children at this age show greater confidence and are beginning to become accomplished at developing relationships with the other children in the nursery.
In the toddler room we have a little more structure to their day, but continue their learning through play, activities and experiences. They can take part in arts and crafts, play dough, cornflower and many messier creative activities. Quieter activities including role-play, book and cosy corner and construction toys are also on offer. We have space for those children who need a nap during the day.
At Humpty Dumpty Childcare we believe that outside play is important for a child’s wellbeing, the toddlers have access to the garden throughout the day, providing them an outdoor extension to their indoor activities.
We communicate with parents via Parentzone (an online app), verbally when you drop off and pick up or via home link books. Or a combination of everything, which ensures that developmental information is passed regularly between nursery and home. Your child’s Key Worker will carryout observations and assessments, all of which will be shared on a regular basis with you.
We would always encourage you to visit us, we are confident you will find Humpty Dumpty Childcare to be a caring and nurturing place to leave your toddler.
