Our 2-3's Room

Our 2-3 year old children have increasingly well developed physical and language skills. Their curiosity is at an all time high as they seek answers to the perpetual question 'why?'

Children in our 2-3 year old room have increasingly well-developed physical and language skills. We support these areas in their continuing development. Children’s curiosity is at an all-time high as they happily explore and investigate the world around them - seeking answers to the perpetual question ‘why?’ We motivate your child to learn encouraging them to try new things and ensuring that quality time is spent with them in both small groups and individually. The development of social skills is continuing and staff support children starting to understand how to engage with others - taking time and sensitively supporting difficult concepts such as sharing and turn taking. Your child will be learning numbers and letters through our approach to storytelling, songs and rhymes whilst their speech and vocabulary will be advancing. Children feel secure when they have a consistent routine: we support this through event sequencing - so for instance, after tidy up time the children sit for an action time song or after tea the children will wash their hands and go out to play. Provision is made for sleep time if your child needs a rest, although it is in this room that children start to grow out of an afternoon sleep.

We ensure that our 2-3 year old room is inviting and interesting and you will see your children exploring various areas of provision including:

  • * Sensory play including music
  • * Heuristic play – discovery play with natural materials
  • * Cosy areas for snuggling, books and stories with puppets
  • * Pretend play
  • * Large and small construction
  • * Physical play
  • * Creative play including water, sand, paint, playdough and sticking
