Toddler Childcare Nursery in Glen Parva
Play Days Academy Glen Parva provides day childcare Nursery services for babies from birth to 2 years, toddlers from 2 to 3 years and pre-school from 3 to 5 years. We offer personalised care and learning opportunities according to the child’s requirements and interests. Our nursery sessions cater to various child care requirements and we have spacious playrooms and comfortable sleep pods required to meet personal and group needs.
The toddler room is an active, but welcoming environment for children aged 2-3 years. Children explore using their senses, actively taking part in whole body activities, using messy play, food play, natural resources & music. Children are encouraged to try new experiences with lots of adult encouragement, going out daily for walks in the local environment. Whether they’re rolling down hills, visiting the cows and horses, feeding the chickens from their window or shopping for their 2 goldfish Bangers & Mash. The toddler room offers lots of opportunities to enhance speech and language through 1-1 or fun group activities each day, helping the children to develop their vocabulary while having fun and following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Staff ratio is 1 adult to 4 children. Toddlers are starting to become more independent, toilet training and learning how to take risks safely while playing outside to be able to keep themselves safe.
Preparing for school
Our nursery classes are designed to prepare children for a smooth transition into the school environment. We arrange sessions that encourage both social and educational development. An array of indoor and outdoor play equipment, which are available to the children on a ‘self-select’ basis, are used to encourage children to develop ‘schematic play’. This form of learning encourages children to explore the world within a safe and secure environment and also come up with their own theories about how things work and how various factors are related to each other.
Learning for ages 0 to 5 years
We encourage learning and development of children aged 0 to 3 and 3 to 5 years by following a cyclical pattern of Observe, Plan, Do and Review. They are provided learning under 7 prime areas:
•Communication and language
•Personal and social development
•Understanding of the world
•Expressive arts and design
We also incorporate individual short-term learning plans as we believe that every child is unique and has to follow their own learning journey.
