Our experienced staff provide children with an opportunity to learn, grow, play and explore. We endeavor to provide opportunities to nurture a well-rounded personality in your child. Education being an ongoing process and a shared responsibility between home and nursery; we encourage parents to be our partners in this exciting journey with their children.
The Toddler House Nursery follows the British EYFS curriculum and elements from the Montessori way, incorporating Jolly Phonics and Numicon to support learning.
At The Toddler House Nursery we see children as unique little people who are curious and ready-to-learn. We believe in a strong three way partnership between child, parents and teachers to encourage positive learning and development of each and every little person.
Our Mission is to create a safe, stimulating and emotionally stable environment where each child is motivated and encouraged to develop through endless opportunities.
Our Mission is to provide an open, respectful and informative relationship with parents, where they are valued, listened to and supported.
Our Mission is to secure an enjoyable working environment which inspires our teachers to deliver the highest standard of learning experience.
The Toddler House follows The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) British curriculum and also includes some of the Montessori elements. We believe children learn through positive experiences around areas of interest. When we plan, we plan ideas for play based learning around interests and themes. We make use of Jolly phonics and Numicon to support learning. Please remember that development differs from child to child. We like to focus on what your child can do rather than what they can’t.
Our Programme in a nut shell
Our Literacy Program is an integration of Jolly phonics activities, stories, etc… It extends into all our activities – reading, music, and crafts. Children will be allowed to explore books every day at appropriate levels depending upon their age and readiness.
What is Jolly Phonics?
Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The letter sounds are split into seven groups as shown.
Letter Sound Order
The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.
How does Jolly Phonics work?
Using a synthetic phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the 5 skills for reading and writing.
The 3 out of 5 skills taught in Jolly Phonics at The Toddler House Nursery
Learning the letter sounds (Age 1- 4)
Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.
Learning letter formation (Age 2- 4)
Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.
Identifying the sounds in words (Segmenting) (Age 3-4)
Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.
Our Math program is an integration of Numicon a multi-sensory approach to teaching maths developed by experts in the classroom. It is designed to help children understand connections between numbers. It’s ideal support for early maths teaching they will be meeting at the school.
Through the multi-sensory activities and mathematical language of Numicon, your child will develop the understanding and skills that underpin their later understanding of number.
Our Science program will provide the opportunity for children to develop a range of skills, either explicitly or implicitly through the following:
Explore objects and materials.
Make careful observations.
Engage in simple investigations.
Describe (including shape, size, number, compare, sort, classify, and order.)
Record observations using words and pictures
Use a variety of simple tools to extend observations.
Work collaboratively with others.
Share and discuss ideas and listen to new perspectives.
Life Skills – will help instill important qualities such as responsibility, self- control, discipline, self – reliance, concern for community and empathy.
Assess your child’s progress and work through their personalized portfolios and progress card: The personalized portfolio will display your child’s work done throughout the year. Children are assessed constantly throughout the year and the progress card will highlight all of the areas in which your child has developed. We send out two reports during an academic year. The first report is sent home at the end of Term 1 and the second is sent home at the end of term 3.
We believe that Family Involvement is crucial in a child’s education that requires a partnership between parents and teachers. We keep you informed with newsletters on Whatsapp and Email.
