Ages 2-3

Children between the ages 2-3  continue their High Bank journey in two spacious toddler rooms, and also have their own dedicated outside space too.

This caters for children who are maturing and at this stage of their nursery life we are able to introduce more educational-based activities, with the emphasis still being very much about having fun.

The children begin learning some very important lessons, such as imaginative play, and a wide range of themed activities are designed to aid their development and prepare them for their final move with the nursery – to pre-school.

We want to give your child the very best possible start to their education so detailed planning goes into ensuring that the learning environment meets the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

By this stage your child’s learning journey is starting to become very comprehensive, with various observations being carried out to ensure your child’s development continues apace.

At the end of each day as well as being given a verbal summary of your child’s day by a member of staff, you will also receive an electronic report, delivered by an app to your mobile telephone, tablet or computer. This report includes pictures, audio and even video.

When your child is getting ready to enter our pre-school room they will initially have transition periods, with the support of their key person, to introduce them to the room and the older children, so by the time the day comes for the final move, they are more than ready to take their final steps within the nursery.

At this stage, we also support children with toilet training when it is agreed with the parents that you child is ready.
