Our Tiger Room…
The emphasis in this room is learning through play. All activities will be planned through monitoring and assessing the children’s individual needs and emerging skills. The children will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including messy play, role play, singing/nursery rhymes, story time and small world activities. Your child will also be introduced to early numeracy and literacy skills and activities designed to develop language and communication.
The key worker role is a crucial part of a toddler’s nursery life and we make sure all children in this age group have lots of one-to-one support. If your child still requires a nap during the day we can cater for this and our experienced staff will sensitively support your child’s transition from nappies to potties and toilets.
Tiger Room Timetable
Children are typically put into groups based on age. This supports the children to have meaningful experiences with children their age and keep the number of children in one space all at once to a minimum. We have found that smaller groups ensure Tigers get the most of out the great activities.
|9.00||Phonics. Tigers enjoy listening walks and singing.|
|9.30||To the Gym or Garden to play. We love Pilates, bikes and scooters and using the huge sandpit.|
|10.30||Focusing on children’s next steps of learning.|
|2.00||Focus activities and free play in the room and garden.|
|4.00||Free flow and activities. Tigers enjoy trips to the story gardens, field and adventure playground regularly.|
This is not set in stone. For example, if it is a particularly windy day we might to some windy day activities or rainy day activities and so on. We often have visitors or special enrichment activities for the children which alter the timetable.
