In the Toddler room, we help the children to develop basic self help skills such as washing and drying hands, feeding self and using utensils, putting hat on and off, toilet training, dressing themselves and packing up.
Each day the children are given the opportunity and encouraged to exercise their fine motor skills. This is usually through a variety of creative mediums such as painting, collage, gluing, touch and feel exercises, collages, drawing and play dough.
In our great outdoor areas staff set up new experiences daily for the children to cater for physical development. Obstacle courses and different activities are set up to challenge the children, and their physical abilities such as running, climbing, crawling, balancing, lifting, throwing, catching and kicking balls, and learning to play simple physical games.
