The toddler rooms cater for children from 18 months to 3 years of age. This room is carefully designed to cater for active toddlers. At this age, a programme is introduced creating some routine to the children’s day, which prepares them for Montessori or Naíonra sessions. Toddler room one caters for the younger children in the group and toddler room two caters for the older children.
Developmentally appropriate activities are introduced which will encourage independence and learning. Opportunities to discover and explore will be incorporated into the activities to stimulate the children’s senses. Children will be encouraged to be inquisitive and to ask questions to harness their natural curiosity. Examples of the activities carried out in the toddler rooms include jigsaws, matching and sorting, picture and colour recognition, counting and grading activities, cooking, arts and crafts, messy play activities such as gloop play, sand and water play, music and movement, yoga, story telling, rhymes, singing and outdoor play.
