This room looks after our 2 1/2 to 3 year olds
The Starfish children enjoy the freedom to choose their activities due to the discussions we hold with them in the morning. This room has a mix of adult and child led activities which are enhanced to create new experiences.
Independence is encouraged and given the opportunity to experience the ‘real life’ by going to the fruit and vegetable shop to buy their own snack and discuss where they come from, how to cook it, etc. This simple task can lead to endless learning opportunities and from this new activities can be planned.
Starfish children enjoy getting messy and exploring using their senses. The children are encouraged to discuss their own interests and what they would like to do as this provides the children to make decisions and be part of a team.
