At Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Enfield, between the ages of 24 months and 36 months old, children are welcomed into and enjoy a space in Toddlers that matches their inquisitiveness and energy. The space is filled with well-considered furnishings and learning resources that are accessible to them at all times.

We are passionate about taking care of your Toddlers

With your child’s growing independence their reliance on adults is eased slightly and we ensure that each team member has no more than four children to support at any one time. By doing so we see children at this age and stage thrive.

Toddlers continue to develop with a focus on the three prime areas and are more fully introduced to four more specific areas that support their growing enthusiasm for exploring their world. These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive art and design.

As our Toddlers go about their play our educators sprinkle texts, books, sounds and numbers around them, promoting your child’s curiosity.

There will always be space and opportunity for them to create their own work and art, being encouraged to have a go themselves inspired by the world around them.

Learning In Adventurers

Between ages 2 to 3, toddlers make lots of progress within their development. They are physically more able, keen to explore and imitate the world around them. They develop their social skills as well as their language at this age.

We support children in the toddler room to develop their independence, self-help skills, communication, resilience, understanding and learning to regulate their emotions. We also encourage children to learn about showing care to their belongings, resources, nature, animals and each other.

Key person and practitioners learn a lot about what children are interested in by closely observing them to be able to plan exciting and stimulating activities based on the children’s own interests. Activities and experiences are tailored to children’s interests and needs in toddler room. We help support children’s growing sense of self and encourage confidence and self-esteem.

Children are able to freely access all resources without restrictions during such as accessing creative equipment for messy play, exploring in the sand and water areas, choosing a book or two for the cosy area, making their own playdough or simply exploring different areas of learning where they can freely access different resources.

Children at this age are curious about the world around them, they tend to ask lots of questions and show curiosity, so there is never a dull moment in this room, everyday is full of surprises and lots of ‘why’ questions to answer!
