In September 2014 we opened a Two’s provisions – Terrific for Twos. Our staff ensure that children in the two’s provision learn and develop well and are kept healthy. Whilst in school, children are taught a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good progress through school and in life.
Terrific Two’s practitioners review the progress of our children aged between two and three, and provide parents and/or carers with a short summary of their child’s development in the prime areas. These checks identify the child’s strengths and any areas where progress is less than expected.
An environment which encourages and maximises the learning experience…
We aim to create a stimulating learning environment where children feel confident, secure and challenged. The children have daily access to an indoor and outdoor environment which is set up in learning spaces of continuous provision for all seven areas of learning. Regular observations of the children are made to ensure that their current interests and experiences, ages and stages and abilities are met.
Play-based learning is paramount, whereby children direct their own learning from carefully planned opportunities provided by staff.
