English 1

In the Toddler Room we make it possible for the child aged 8 months – thirty months to feel comfortable and safe enough to explore the environment, by creating a safe and secure environment.

We approach children with an open mind, listen to their stories, and pay attention to their feelings. We also provide them structure and predictability as much as possible. It is important that the children develop themselves in different developmental areas. We have a variety of materials which support these different developmental areas, such as building (blocks), imaginary play, puzzles, using puppets and reading books during circle time. Each morning we do circle time with the children. We start by singing our “Good Morning” song, we say “Hello” to all the children and teachers and then we sing songs and read stories. To aid in stimulating the children to learn and explore new ideas, we also work with a system of themes, for example seasons, circus, animals. We try to gear these themes to the abilities of the children within our group. When the toddlers move on to the Preschool group; they go with a sense of independence and a curiosity to keep on learning and discovering.

The maximum of children in this group is 10/11.
