The Teddy Tots room caters for 18 of our 1-2-year-old children every day. Within this room the children are able to explore and be involved in different planned learning experiences with their peers. They are more mobile and have the freedom to choose different learning experiences that they want to get involved in.
The Teddy Tots are now exploring more sensory experiences and enjoy physical play. Using Pre-Birth to Three, the staff can respond to individual needs and plan exciting activities accordingly.
At this age secure attachments are essential to support emotional development in addition to our daily dose of love and care. The staff are always on hand with a welcoming smile to help build and develop trusting and positive relationships. The children in this room love getting messy with spaghetti play, shaving foam and they also enjoy simply splashing in the water. Wait till you hear all the new songs that they sing, it’s just adorable.
Staff within the room plan observe, monitor and evaluate using North Lanarkshire’s Birth to 3 documents – ‘Effective Early Development & Learning. The critical period from birth to 3 years.’ And the Pre Birth to Three document. We plan this based on the children’s age and stage of development and children are encouraged to learn through play and curiosity. Throughout the day, your child will be encouraged to develop their knowledge and independence through praise and encouragement.Click here to Go Back
