Toddlers

Teddies’ toddler unit welcomes children from approximately 18 months – 3 years old. The nursery is split into groups to accommodate the different stages of toddlerhood.

Activities

We encourage our toddlers to learn through play. The children have the opportunity to engage in lots of activities throughout the day.
Our weekly planning is child-led through the child’s own interests and according to their developmental needs. Our toddlers enjoy a variety of activities including: role-play, music and movement, sand and water, outdoor play and art and crafts.
Our children have plenty of opportunities to be active outdoors. Our outside play areas provide an exciting learning environment and encourage children to use their imaginations. We have two outdoor areas and lots of outdoor toys for climbing, balancing, jumping, riding, building and messy play. At Teddies Nursery we encourage an interest in nature with herbs, flowering plants, insect hotels and bird tables.

Parent Information

We pride ourselves on good communication with parents and whilst the majority of communication with parents is done verbally we also provide daily feedback online to provide parents with information including how their child has slept and eaten that day, nappy changes and/or toilet training and the activities they have enjoyed.
More structured communication occurs at our parents’ evenings which allow us to get together for an informal chat and gives parents the opportunity to explore the nursery.

Toilet Training

We encourage toilet training in the toddlers department and will work very much with you and your child. We will discuss what works best for your child and will only start toilet training when they are ready.
