Lions (2-3 Year Olds)
Lions is our area for inquisitive two year olds! The focus of the day continues to be on learning through play, with a routine that incorporates adult-led activities and builds on children’s developing knowledge and curiosity.
Our carefully chosen toys and activities promote physical co-ordination and manipulative skills, role-play and creativity.
Join The Pride!
Children take part in focused and creative activities throughout the day. Children have free choice of which activity they take part in, our rooms are well equipped with plenty of toys and equipment. Children are provided with many different activities along with music and movement, song times, musical instrument sessions and outdoor play. Circle time every day is an opportunity to take part in group activities and listen to stories; staff use props and puppets during these times to hold children’s attention and develop their concentration.
Children spend a lot of their time outdoors. They are provided with group games, bats and balls, coup cars, bikes, trikes and scooters along with obstacle courses, balancing beams and outdoor role play.
Fun and Independence
Children benefit from going on trips into the local community, to the park, the village or on a coach for trips to the farm. Staff promote good table manners and encourage children to feed themselves. After meals all the children are encouraged to clean their teeth.
Children begin toilet training in this room, and have free access to their own toilets in the bathroom. Children are given plenty of verbal praise and encouragement to succeed together with their own reward charts.
Most children sleep after lunch. There is provision for those who do not sleep during lunch time to play and take part in activities.
