2 Year Olds

This department offers children a place to move from the under 2’s and prepare for the pre-school. Children are cared for on a 1:4 ratio and move towards activities that start to develop an increasing range of skills and knowledge. Pre-school is close by, allowing the children to experience and delight in the activities enjoyed by the older children whilst retaining a space to retreat to for an afternoon nap!

Staff working with this age group are skilled practitioners who understand children’s development. The team work closely with their colleagues in the Under 2’s department to support children and parents with key development milestones such as toilet training.

In the 2-3 year olds room a wider range of activities are provided that continue to focus on the prime areas but introduce more of the specific areas of learning which are:

  •  Literacy
  •  Mathematics
  •  Understanding the World
  •  Expressive Arts and Design

These additional 4 areas of learning introduce lots of activities that develop the children’s imagination and creativity with story times with actions, puppets and story sacks, music and movement, counting, exploring and discovering. Also lots of colourful, messy, gooey, giggly sorts of things happen here.

As with all ages throughout Kaleidoscope, the children spend lots of time exploring outdoors. Wellies, waterproofs and sunhats are essential kit at Kaleidoscope as the adventures in the garden are enjoyed in all weathers. Muddy Puddle sessions are a favourite !
