Toddlers - Planet Tiny Nursery, North London
185 Priory Road, London, N8 8NB
Planet Tiny Toddlers offers childcare care the age of 17 months to around 2 years and 8 months.
Here the children take part in a lot of hands on activities such as painting, messy play using shaving foam, corn flour, sand, mud etc.
Children get a sense of understanding through play and are encouraged to identify what their interests are by using books, toy animals, our building toys, and a variety of art equipment.
Whilst at toddlers, the children also take part in Jumping Beans and Debutots relating their learning to the early years foundation stage.
Children join toddlers around the age of 16 months. Prior to this they may attend our baby room and move up as and when they are ready. We do not encourage children to move over until they are confidently walking on their feet and show good stability.
Toddlers have two rooms to choose from with various activities and experiences available simultaneously in both.
The first room has a large circle time area where all the children can sit together in a group as well as a home corner and book corner for quiet play or reading. The purpose built chairs and tables allow the children to make good use of construction and puzzle like toys.
The second room is used for art activities and messy play where children have the option of either painting, drawing, using sand and water etc.
Towards the rear of the room, the children have access to an outdoor play area where they can confidently move in and out negotiating the space available to them.
Occasionally entry to Planet Tiny can take place here at Toddlers as we may have space depending on your childcare requirements. Children are guaranteed to move over to our preschool where they remain until they begin school.
Progress check at age 2
Whilst at Toddlers your child will have a mandatory 2-year progress check. Practitioners will review your child’s progress and provide parents with a short-written summary of your child’s development in the prime areas. Practitioners must discuss with parents and or carers how the summary of development can be used to support learning at home.
