Toddlers – Grateful Gazelles & Helpful Hares (2-3 years)

Toddlers learn best in safe, loving places where they can explore, in their own way.


The Toddlers Programme at Early Explorers.

We nurture confidence through a creative and interactive journey.

“Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, relate to others, set their own goals and solve problems” Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS framework 2021)

We have carefully chosen numerous open-ended authentic resources for our children to explore that are in line with our curriculum approach. We provide natural resources and set up environments/activities that reflect real-life experiences.

Children are actively engaged in making their own playdough exploring with flowers, leaves, seashells and stones which spark intrigue play and curiosity. We set up provocations for children to explore inner tuff trays. We strongly believe that children benefit from this type of environment in comparison to a very structured sit-down at your desk approach with worksheets every day.

The Toddlers Programme at Early Explorers.

Our Toddlers Programme is focused on nurturing children’s confidence through a creative and interactive journey. As per the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework 2021, play is essential for children’s development as it helps them explore, relate to others, set goals and solve problems.

Our curriculum has been designed to give parents confidence in every aspect of their child’s experience with the full support of our passionate educators. We believe in educating children through their head, hands, and heart. Our indoor learning spaces are enhanced by natural components, open-ended resources, and loose parts that stimulate children’s creativity. We strategically place resources and materials to create an attractive and functional play area that fosters deeper levels of connection and involvement. Our children are encouraged to explore, question, and understand in our Creative Studio, Role Play area, and Sensory Studio.

Our Makerspace provides an exciting and engaging environment for children to explore their creativity, innovation, and design skills. Through the use of recyclable materials and real tools, our children are encouraged to become thinkers, inventors, and designers. They tinker, construct, explore, and create all kinds of unique inventions that showcase their skills and abilities.


Develop Children’s Motor Skills

As children engage in constructing their creative projects, they utilize all parts of their body. They walk, sit, stretch, grab, cut, glue, draw, paint, write and manipulate all the Maker Space tools, engaging in diverse activities that develop and refine their fine motor and gross motor skills while navigating space and resources.


Play to Learn

Our bespoke approach to learning aims to develop critical thinking, creative skills, social development, and a sense of adventure, by placing every child at the center of their own development and education. We believe that play is at its best when it is purposefully planned, enhancing, and building essential learning skills, which are the foundations of lifelong learners. Our team nurtures children’s imagination and curiosity, encouraging them to voice their questions and interests, which are integral parts of our nursery.


Enabling Environments

Our enabling environments, both indoors and outdoors, allow children to actively play, think critically, and develop the skills they need to become independent thinkers and strong communicators. We have carefully selected numerous open-ended, authentic resources that align with our curriculum approach. Our goal is to provide natural resources and set up environments and activities that reflect real-life experiences and our children’s interests.


Engaging Activities

At our nursery, children engage in making their own play dough while exploring with flowers, leaves, seashells, and stones, which sparks intrigue, play, and curiosity. We also set up provocations for children to explore inside tuff trays which we strongly believe benefits their learning compared to a very structured, sit-down-at-your desk approach with worksheets every day. We encourage our children to learn through hands on experiences that allow them to explore and discover the world around them in a fun and exciting way.

Overall, our approach to learning and development is centered on play-based activities that enhance children’s motor skills, critical thinking, creativity, and social development, preparing them for a successful future.
