The Jellyfish room is for our littlest toddlers. Children enter this room the term before they are two and stay until they are approaching three.
The Jellyfish room is full of exciting sensory experiences such as gloop, oats, water and sand play. The children have freeflow access to a large shared garden area where they can develop their gross motor skills on our large climbing equipment.
Breakfast begins at 8am and the children are offered toast or cereal before they begin their day of fun and adventures. Activities are planned based on the childrens current interests and designed to support their physical, communication and personal, social and emotional development.
A healthy snack is offered mid morning before a focused group time including the childrens favourite "knock on the box!" The awe and wonder created as the children anticipate what is inside the box for group time is simply magical! This could include a story, puppet, musical instruments and much more. This short, interactive group time gives the children the opportunity to develop the listening and attention skills they need as they get older.
Lunch is served at 12pm and the children sit and eat together, sharing conversations and learning social skills important for meal times. Some of the children then head off for a sleep and the other children enjoy some quiet activity time.
Again the afternoon is filled with more planned activities, this could include a walk in the local area, baking, creative activities or construction play.
A delicious tea is served at 5pm for the children staying until 6pm. After tea its wind down time with stories and cuddles.
