2 Year Olds
Welcome to Robin class
We would like to wish you a warm welcome to the two year old provision at Mission Grove. We realise that for many of you this will be the first time your child has left your care. We realise what a big step this is for both you and your child. At Mission Grove we want both parent and child to feel happy and secure with us.
When your child starts they will be appointed a ‘Key Person’. The Key Person will take on specific responsibilities for your child, from settling them in and then continuing to support and promote their learning.
All the adults work as a team and will support the development of your child, but your child’s Key Person will be your first point of contact if you wish to discuss anything about your child.
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) refers to the education and care provision for children from birth to five. At Mission Grove this is from the 2 year olds to Reception.
These key areas of learning are important as they all combine to ensure young children make good, strong progress in their earliest years.
We have created many exciting learning experiences covering our topics which will be:
All about me
Numbers around us
We only offer part-time places at the two year old provision.
Monday - Friday morning session runs from 9.00am – 12.00pm .
Monday- Friday afternoon session runs from 1.00pm – 4.00pm .
Please make sure that you drop your child off at the start of the session and pick them up promptly at the end. Children that arrive late can often have trouble settling in and being picked up late is likely to make children anxious. Doors for our morning sessions will be closed at 9:15am and for our afternoon sessions doors will be closed at 1:15pm. If you arrive after this time our session will be closed.
Playing Inside and Out
The setting is an open plan classroom. We have various equipment such as construction for your child to build and play with. We also have sand and water trays, as well as a home corner for role-playing. Our tables contain activities that encourage children to draw, write, paint, model, have a conversation and count. We like to encourage all children to spend some time outside as research has shown that children benefit greatly from the openness of outdoor play and the freedom that it offers them.
