From babes in arms to bouncing five-year-olds we use a touch of flower power to support the personal, social and emotional development of your children.
From the Daffodil Room to the Sunflower Room, the Buttercup Room and the Bluebell Room, the children will find each setting has the appropriate resources and equipment to meet their evolving needs and to help them progress.
The focus in the Daffodil Room is on helping babies develop their senses, explore their environment in safety and prepare for a move, once they are on their feet, to join the other toddlers in the Sunflower Room, which has lots of exciting things waiting to be discovered.
The Buttercup Room sets out to help children aged two and three gain a little independence, particularly with such tasks as getting dressed and using the toilet. It also introduces them to a more structured day and helps them to prepare for the challenges of the Bluebell Room, where children aged from three to five are encouraged to explore their own ideas and make their own decisions.
The age ranges are a guide, and a child’s key person will talk to parents/carers about the best time to take a step up.
The Educare garden can be enjoyed safely by all the children as they embark on adventures with climbing and hiding, artistic creations with chalk, soggy sessions with water and home-made delights in the mud kitchen. Yummy!
Observation and assessments take place at every stage of a child’s time at Educare as we monitor the progress being made and provide the support they need to advance to primary school, and maybe to our Out of School Club.
