For Tinies aged 14 months to 2 years old
Tinies 1 takes into consideration the children becoming more independent when making choices and their increase in physical capabilities and caters for 6 children aged 14 months to 19 months, with a ratio of 1:3 which is maintained at all times.
The room is designed specifically for this age range, as the children are becoming more independent by walking, climbing and feeding themselves. The younger of the Tinies age group the children use captains chairs to ensure their safety whilst sitting at the table.
Tinies 2 is divided into two areas: a carpeted area where children are able to play in the home corner, relax, read, and play with the large variety of toys available; and the messy area where the children are able to take part in daily art and crafts, as well as other table top activities. The Tinies will enjoy using their own garden daily, weather permitting, where they can develop their physical skills using the outdoor equipment under careful supervision.
Importantly in the early years we feel learning should be fun and each day contains a range of activities designed to be both interesting and appropriate to each child’s needs and abilities, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate spontaneous interest and events. Staff try to enter the child’s world and help them to explore through sharing experiences and emotions.
