Happy Tots 3 - 5 Years Old

The Happy Tots room caters for our 3-5 year olds. Within this room the staff are helping to support the children in a pathway to ensure they are becoming responsible citizens, confident individuals, successful learners and effective contributors. Staff use consultation time with the children to allow them to decide on what they want to learn. The staff allow the children to risk assess and teach them new things which will hopefully give them the best possible start in life.

Within our Happy Tots room, we have a wide variety of areas to allow your child to develop and learn. We have a story corner, a separate room for ICT including a smartboard and computers, small world area with dolls house, garage, dinosaurs etc, construction area, creative area, baking area, writing area and games area. The layout of the room allows children to choose the learning opportunities which they wish to use which encourages choice and independence. Throughout the day children also have access to the outdoor area to continue their learning outside.

Happy Tots participate in Mini Kickers on a Tuesday Afternoon where they have the opportunity to develop their football skills. The 3-5 children also participate in a Spanish Class with Alison on a Wednesday Morning. We encourage all children to plan their own learning by prompting interests and allow them to ask questions about what they would like to know. Every child is an individual and each key worker is dedicated to providing them with the learning experiences best suited to their needs. We want to teach the children to evaluate their learning and challenge themselves by creating their next goal.

Staff within the Happy Tots plan use the Curriculum for Excellence and floor books. This Curriculum will be used in your child’s life until the age of 18 which allows consistency for your child and a smoother transition from Nursery to Primary and Primary to Secondary School.

Tannoch Tots Nursery are delighted to announce that from August 2019, we have been awarded Partnership with North Lanarkshire Council to offer 1140 funded hours. This is for eligible children aged 2-5 years old.
