2 Year

Hello, and welcome to the 2 Year room! We are part of the Early Years team, and we love having the children join us before starting their school journey at this crucial age! Our main aim is to encourage the children with us to develop their learning and life skills with us, mainly through their play. We feel this is the best way to help the children develop to their fullest potential, we help the children make sense of the world around them in an in-direct way. Through playing it helps the children to develop verbally, socially, cognitively and emotionally, to name a few. This also helps them to gain the self-confidence needed to engage in new experiences and environments throughout their lives. 

If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to speak to any of the 2 Year room staff! :)
