The Badger Room provides care for children aged between 2-3 years. It is a bright and cheerful room where your child can learn, have fun and make lots of friends. They enjoy listening to stories, sharing them with adults, peers and looking at them alone. By this age children are becoming more independent. They show an increasing desire to feed themselves, help with dressing/undressing, wash own face with a flannel etc and join in with tidy up time.
We provide a range of creative activities for children to explore e.g., painting, sand, water and play-dough. We have a home corner with resources to support children to develop pretend play, they have lots of opportunities to empty and fill containers, pots, pans, vegetables, stones etc.
In the Badger Room we learn lots of social skills, sharing, making friends and playing in small groups.
We also have a wide range of activities to help develop language skills beginning to put 2-3 words together and starting to develop conversation.
The staff are here to work with you and your child during their progress from nappies to the toilet. Some of the children in this room may require a sleep, usually after lunch. We have an area that can be closed off if necessary for undisturbed rest.
Daily activities, meals and sleeps are recorded for parents. Between the age of 2-3 years staff will complete a 2 year check in partnership with parents, identifying strengths in the prime areas and identify any areas where extra support is required.
