Mums & Toddlers
Come along to our Toddler sessions on Tuesday mornings 9.30am - 10.45am (term time only).
We meet in the Foundation Stage Building once the older children are settled. Mums, Dads, Grandparents and Carers are welcome to bring children along to this stay and play session, joining in all the activities taking place that morning. This is for all children raging in age from 0-5 years. All are welcome. You do not need to book, simply arrive at the side gate and a member of our Early Years team will come and meet you. Sessions usually begin during the second week of term allowing us time to settle our Early Years children back into routine after a holiday.
At Black Firs Toddler Group, our aim is to provide activities that are age and stage appropriate within a safe and a stimulating environment for children to learn and develop through play. We follow the Statutory Framework for the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ (EYFS). This is the stage of a child’s development from birth to the end of the Reception year at school.
The EYFS is underpinned by three core ideas: Every Child Matters – it is our responsibility to help children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes of Staying Safe, Being Healthy, Enjoying and Achieving, Making a Positive Contribution and Achieving Economic Well-Being.
Children are both being and becoming – all children have a right to happy childhood, and their early experiences lead to their development in ways that affect their future life chances. Parents are the most important support to children’s development – high quality learning in settings is most effective in partnership with parents. We strive to ensure that each child makes progress in acquiring skills whilst building confidence through positive relationships.
We provide a range of activities including arts and crafts, messy play, dressing up, bikes and scooters, prams and dolls, as well as opportunities to take learning outside. We love the outdoors so always bring a coat!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting the School office (details below) who will happily help. We look forward to welcoming you!
Please note: Parents and Carers are responsible for their Toddler(s) at all times and should stay with their child during the session.
