The Over Two programme is based on the children’s interests which change over time. They choose from a range of relevant and exciting experiences inside and outside with the teachers guiding and assisting as appropriate. Teachers watch for opportunities to encourage maths and literacy learning as well as ensuring physical challenges and opportunities to develop social competency. There are also some quiet times with stories and music an integral part of every day.
For two and three year old children it is all about fun while beginning to take others into account. Our teachers are adept at positive child management techniques such as distraction when sharing is still really difficult.
Those children requiring an after lunch sleep lie down on mattresses in a separate quiet room. We follow your instructions on this matter. Those children not requiring bed rest also have a quiet activity time after lunch every day.
