Age: 2 years – 3 years.
It is an important time for each child to learn about sharing and getting along with other children. This age group is very sensitive to language and you will be fascinated by the songs, rhymes, and stories they learn.
Through stories, children learn to appreciate language, gain new vocabulary, and learn to use new words and concepts. Simple songs and games are an important introduction to speech patterns, sensory motor skills, development, and movement skills.
Our weekly planners are child-led and we value the children’s interests. Parental involvement is of utmost importance to us. We ask parents to send in family photos for our family wall and to let us know if anything exciting is happening with their child. We work closely with parents to help with toilet training and follow the routine that is developed at home.
The room is attached to an enclosed garden with surrounding gardens. A favourite place for toddlers is the enclosed mud kitchen.
Each child has his/her own key worker who assesses the child’s learning, work, and growth.
An individual Aistear diary, observations, pictures, gems are done on an ongoing basis.
We encourage parents to review all the information uploaded on the Childpath app as they provide depth reflections on the learning and work of the children in the Bumblebee room.
