This is the stage when babies move on to a point where they start to move, and in this area they can toddle, wobble or crawl to their hearts content. Painting is introduced at this stage and may be a bit messy. Music and dance is a constant from day one of their care. As each child becomes more independent we cater to their needs by introducing a more structured day to include rest and more indoor and outdoor play allowing them explore more but still retain the attentive loving response from their carer.
At toddler stage the babble starts to make sense and as vocabulary increases, language development through nursery rhymes and reading stories is a key area together with a promotion of acceptable behavior and toilet training. This is a hectic, funny and rewarding stage for parents and staff.
