Nursery Class For Toddlers
Hedgehogs class is for children aged between 18 months and 3 yrs.
The years that your child spends as a toddler are very important. We have a large and spacious room where our toddlers can play through a combination of adult led and child initiated activities.
Our classroom is separated into soft carpet area where we use our imagination through play and have song and story time, music and movement and where all our toys are at the children’s level.
We have a messy play area, where we encourage daily painting/artwork and a range of sensory activities.
The staff use 'Tapestry' an Online Learning Journal to record and track your child’s learning, This is completed by your child’s Keyworker who will carry out observations and take photos and videos of your child learning. This is also a good way for you to be kept informed about what your child has been doing at nursery as all parent's will be given an individual link to set up an account to view their child's journal online or via a phone app.
We have a great understanding that every toddler has lots of energy, therefore we encourage the children to go outside every day into their own playground where they can ride a bike, engage in sensory activities such as the mud kitchen or even play on the train. We also go for regular wellie walks to the Woodland Walk where we can explore our superb outdoor surroundings.
Parents are provided with a hand written daily diary. This explains what your child has played with,how long and when they have slept, what they have eaten at meal times throughout the day.
