“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because were curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths”
– Walt Disney
Moving on Up…
Our Tweenie sections are full of busy, happy and loving children aged usually between 18 months and two years old. With a staff ratio of one adult to every three children, Tweenies still require help with their care routines but are beginning to assert their need for independence. Key workers continue to play an important part of the routine with all children being encouraged to practice social skills, develop their confidence and join in activities with others. Of course, we also help them to find their voices!
We know that Tweenies are at a particularly busy stage of development, absorbing all that is new in their world – so all toys and activities are carefully selected and frequently changed to keep even the busiest of minds and hands occupied. Exploration and adventure is the name of the game, with sand, water and paint activities used to discover movement and texture, plus construction toys, dressing up clothes and accessories are on hand for ‘role play’ – Tweenies love playing house and shop!
Of course, no day in the Tweenies section is complete without plenty of singing and stories and our merry band of happy noisy children all love joining in!
