The aim of Tender Years is to create a child centred environment in which children are encouraged to explore, experiment, create, imagine, interact and ultimately to learn through the medium of play.

The older the child is, the more curious they become. Our experienced staff will encourage your toddlers curiosity as well as promoting their social, emotional, and physical development.

Children start to participate in activities for longer periods of time such as listening to stories, playing games and taking part in arts and crafts during this stage in their development.

Simple songs and games are important introduction to speech patterns, sensory motor skills, development and movement skills. Children learn to appreciate language, gain new vocabulary, and learn to use new words and concepts through stories.

Toddler room details:
  • Toddlers are introduced to a more structured play and learning environment based on their individual needs.
  • Our activities and curriculum are designed to combine learning and development with a world of play and in turn your child's vocabulary increases greatly at this stage.
  • Children will make their first friends and in this process will start to learn the concept of sharing although a very popular word seems to be “mine” at this age!
  • Some of the activities in the toddler room are Sensory Play, Creative Play, Music & Song, Role Play, Physical Play, Constructive Play, Imaginative Play, Outdoor Play, Drama, Story Telling & Rhyme.
  • While there's no magic age at which a child is ready to start using the potty. This is totally dependant on when your child is ready to take this big step in their development. When you feel the time is right we will work with you to make toilet training for your child as simple as possible.
  • A daily report is kept with details of nappy changes or toilet activity, meals and naps so you can keep in touch with your child's routine.
