Jelly Tots (2-3 years)
At Mount Hawke Nursery our Jelly Tots share the first floor space with our Jelly Babies, approximately 75 square metres of space. Recently refurbished for the purpose and benefit too suit both age ranges. The Jelly Tot space has the capaicity to hold up to 12 children per session, between 3-4 practitioners, taking advantage of the vast space available. Our excellent toddler team will reassure you that you have made the right decision in joining Nurture Mount Hawke from the moment you meet them. They will spend time getting to know you and your child.
Prior to your child starting Nurture we offer two free introductory sessions, we will work closely with you and your child and we recognise that every child is an individual, should further settling in sessions be required.
We use each child’s interests and learning style to plan the daily activities and implement the Early Years Foundation Stage to ensure the planning of activities is suitable to each child’s individual stage of development. Each child will have a Learning Journey on Tapestry this will follow their journey and progress throughout their time at Nurture, it will include photographs of your child’s work as well as play as well as written observations on your child’s progress. We also encourage parents and carers share in your child’s Learning at home by posting photographs and comments to their Tapestry account. Please visit our Tapestry and Education page for further information.
We like to children to get involved in all sorts of craft, which ranges from body painting to car rolling! The children explore paints with their hands and different tools to learn about mark making. The children are introduced to lots of different textures, such as gloop, jelly, pasta and natural objects such as pinecones and leaves.
The children explore the outside environment, developing their physical development and understanding of the natural world. We use outside play to encourage and develop the children’s gross motor skills. We take the children for walks around the village and visiting the local park to show the children different environments; and talk about things that we see!
Each day you will receive feedback on your child’s day from their key person who has the main responsibility for your child. We will also give you a ‘home/nursery diary’. This is an excellent way of sharing information about your child.
